Like a lost balloon

All my hopes and dreams are gone

Up in puffs  of smoke

I invested all

My hopes in your future

Blown up they’re all gone

This  is  just  so  hard  for  me  right  now  as  I am missing  so  many people  in my  life. Sadly  things  are  just  getting  worse  and  worse  , every  time  I  think  there is  a light  at  the  end  of  the  tunnel it  turns out  to be  the  the  express  train  heading  right  at  me.

So  what  to  do, the pain is  excruciating  and  things  are  just  tearing  my  family  apart  and  all I can do is  watch. I live in  fear  of  the next  blow up  …one is  actually  imminent.

What  to  choose I  do not  know?

Well the  way I  feel  now  it  is  harder  for  me  to  cope  with   my  son  and  his  family  removing  themselves  from  my  life , the loss of  my sister and my  best  friend  being  on  the other  side of  the  country !

Did I  say  a blow up  was imminent   well it  just  happened  again! I just feel  so low  and physically  sick.

This  is  too painful  to  write  so I shall let  Sia  say it  all for  me.

Eye of the Needle
Take me down
I’m feeling now
And if I move on
I admit you’re gone
And I ain’t ready
And I’ll hold steady
Yeah I’ll hold you in my arms
In my arms, in my arms
Whoa
And you’re locked inside my heart
And your melody’s an art
And I won’t let the terror in, I’m stealing time
Through the eye of the needle
Step and repeat
Whoa
Tears fall to the beat
Smile through the pain
Feel the acid rain
And I ain’t ready
But I’ll hold steady
Yeah I’ll hold you in my arms
In my arms, in my arms
Whoa
And you’re locked inside my heart
Whoa
And your melody’s an art
Whoa
And I won’t let the terror in, I’m stealing time
Through the eye of the needle
My bags heavy
Been filled by me
They weigh me down
Carry them ’round
It’s all mine all mine
I am blinded by the eye of the needle

Going west – Nevern church

This is just such a lovely I had to share it with you all!

The Silent Eye

Wales 244

St Brynach’s church at Nevern stands right on the bank of the little river Caman. The old tower, the only part of the old Norman church still surviving unchanged, is within feet of the water that sparkles beside a narrow footpath. An old stone footbridge crosses the water  towards the pilgrim’s path down from the ruined castle on the hill…the church was once a stopping point on the pilgrim’s route to St David’s. Many things survive here, from the Celtic Cross in the churchyard to what we would find inside the church. The wild strawberries growing beside the river, however, did not survive for long.

Wales 240

The church was founded in the 6thC when Brynach built a monastery here. The original buildings would probably have been the beehive shaped stone cells more commonly seen in Ireland. This is not surprising as the Welsh called the saint Brynach Weddel… Brynach the Irishman…

The Dark, A Nonet.

It was so  cold  and it  was  so  dark
I was lost  and fear was growing

In  my soul.No light  was  there.

Thousands of souls reached out

From the past to me

Cobweb texture

Wrapped  me up

Encased

Me
