Some random thoughts

It is Mothers Day here in the UK where we honour our mothers and give them presents. But should we not honour our mothers every day for what they did for us and often still do for us every day? After all we wouldn’t be here without them.

A visit to a local park made me look at and think about boundaries. The pair of swans were not allowing the Canadian geese anywhere near them and shooed them off noisily whenever one was spotted. The male mallard ducks were pursuing the females although there were many more males than females. Signs of Spring and also signs of setting boundaries. Do we set boundaries around us and our properties and how do we do this?

The days are getting longer as dawn is much earlier and sunset later. It is also warmer although a bit damp at times. It is time to do some clearing out really but I am packing for a house move. I am not clearing out any more books or other items as I did this last time and now need some of the items I cleared out. I have done this with books and then had to go and find another copy. As a writer I need books for reference as well as for my personal spiritual work. Are you good at clearing out?

I have been ‘giving’ Reiki to a friend this week. We have had several short sessions and these have been quite powerful for both of us. It has made me think that I should work with Reiki much more. Do you do any kind of healing work and if so how do you feel about what you do?

I am looking forward to settling in my new home next month when I can get back to my art work as well as my writing. I have felt a great need to paint again especially since looking at some of the art work from previous years. Do you find looking at what you have done in the past triggers a need to do more of that kind of work?

So random thoughts and questions for you to ponder. The photo is of the swan taking off after the goose.


Mothers and others

Today in the UK, it is Mother’s Day. Later in the year we have Father’s Day. These are special days for telling our parents just how much we love them and do something special for them. But isn’t this something we should do every day? The shops and dining places put up their prices at this time and to me this is not right. It makes a mockery of what the day is really about. What do you think about this?

Also do we have special days for sons, daughters, cousins, aunts, uncles, friends and whoever else is important to us? The answer to this question is ‘no, we do not’. Should we need special days for all those who mean something to us? If we are truly sensitive feeling people then should we not tell those special to us, that they are special and why? We can do this any day or every day or whenever we feel that those words are needed. How many times do you give someone a hug just because you feel that it is the right thing to do? It shows that you care about them and can be done any time on any day. We do not need a special day for this. What are your thoughts on this topic?
