Update….October, 2013: a windspinner outside one of our windows… using a printed and laminated image  from this post…swaying gently in the breezes… spinning gently around…moved by the winds of the love, inspiration  and appreciation I shared with my deeply loved friend…

moved by the winds of love for Nali

Another photo…  blown by the winds of  love and affection…inspired by sharing of love…

January, 2014: a  photo of  the single  “spinner” with that image on it, hanging from the ceiling…spinning gently around when the warm air comes out from the ceiling heating vent… with a magical silver star tail hanging down, spinning playfully along with it… a bit of magic, when the heat comes on…  Nali has moved on, but is still dearly loved in our hearts, deeply appreciated and not the least bit forgotten…

  1. There is such a flow of love and hope through this. It’s an opening of your heart through the processing of saying goodbye to a beloved. Too often we shut down, close up, crawl within but this speaks to me of love and hope and joy.

    • thank you Joss, for putting words to that. I barely have words, but I do have emerging awarenesses…just not many words yet. Yes, there’s a well of love, hope and joy…. and realizing that those precious qualities in one relationship can inspire and enrich other very precious relationships in life, too….

    Hi, I love your gorgeous photos and wonderful thoughts that accompany them. Such a creative offering and I do thank you for P.P.

    However, I’ve noticed that sometimes the words are almost the same color as the photo behind the words. This makes it hard for my aging eyes to read without considerable effort, squinting, and at times just giving up. Which I don’t like to do, because I know I’m missing something special.

    Any ideas on a little more color contrast without it being jarring? Thanks for considering!

    Warmly,

    • Hi Julie….I’m so happy to have you stop by PP…it’s so nice to know you were here.

      Yes, I had thought of, and had some concerns about, the visibility/readability problem as I was making those pages. ( I’m aware that several other readers of this blog have had difficulties like that, too) I had thought that I would type the text below each image, with the words from that image.

      But then as I was posting, on this particular post, I just couldn’t seem to type the words in clear text… I wonder if when that “happens”…(which happens on some other posts too) ….it seems that when the fonts are hard to read…the colors too blended…I think maybe that “happens” when the words on the image are just such very soft, tender, hesitant little “whispers” emerging from my heart…that the words are barely there…I can barely “hear” them…just little whispers…hints at what I’m trying to express…but not sure what they are….and hence…very tender, little “whispers”… and I guess, so are the fonts… ( maybe on those pages with faint fonts, the image speaks more clearly for me…from my heart…. than the words?…I think maybe so…)

      ps.. I think that if you click on the images, they will enlarge…at least they sometimes seem to do that… not sure why they enlarge sometimes, but not all the time…the wonders of technology, I guess????? : )

      btw….the heart, sky and fonts are from the images I made from what we learned in Taking in the Good last summer… isn’t that interesting? I guess in these pages I’m shifting from just a sense of sadness and loss toward a deep appreciation and “taking in the good” of a relationship with a loved one who passed away…

      An even earlier use of that white heart, sky and fonts…but those fonts are outlined in blue and easier to read “Hope comes from a large family” (a beautiful piece of writing by a blogger named Maria) …. https://pocketperspectives.wordpress.com/2013/02/01/hope-comes-from-a-large-family-a-family-with-many-siblings/
      thanks again, Julie, for stopping by… hope you’re doing well… : )

    This is a reminder that love is endless, there is so much we can love even when we have to say goodbye to a human or animal that we loved.

    • Yes…thank you Marie… the many hearts in that last page/image are the awareness that every heart on earth longs for, and benefits from, love, understanding, appreciation, kindness, care, interest, attention….and to be inspired by having offered and received those in one precious relationship and to continue to, or expand upon, sharing them with others who are still here in our lives…to be inspired to do that……

  4. as I read through the comments just now and your reply to each one, my heart felt overwhelmed with the grace that is surrounding you right now during this period of grieving. Such wonderful heart whispers you are sharing with us. You are a beautiful soul and I thank you for sharing a part of this with us.
