Feeling spiritually lost

I always feel low, and spiritually confused, at this time of year.  :-(

I have been reading a book on Buddhism, which is interesting and inspiring, but it can be hard to hold the ideas and positive energy in my heart and mind.

I will leave it there for now.  Don't forget to check out: and

Blogger drives me crazy sometimes!

I have started up new blogs for my fiction (short stories and a novel).  So far so good, but for some reason, some of the paragraphs don't, and won't, end where I want them to.  Even on my new poetry blog, I have had to accept that some of the poems don't visually "show" the same as the others, no matter how many times I try to ask for consistent fonts, font colours, etc.  Stress!

Sorry - this hasn't got much to do with spirituality, has it?  I know that normally I try to keep this blog for spiritual subjects, as opposed to my general blog (  To be honest, it's a case of laziness/convenience, as I was already on Blogger.  I could set up a general blog on here, but that would mean effectively "scrapping" the one.  There are Pros and Cons, but I don't like the "all eggs in one basket" aspect, and also sometimes Google/Blogger is frustrating to use.

Anyway, check out: or/and

Why can't I "follow" blogs anymore?

I don't mean ones I follow already, but new ones or ones I have only just discovered.  I don't want to go via Google Friend Connect, Yahoo, etc.  I don't understand any of that stuff - way too involved for me!!!  You used to just click on "Follow" at the top of the page.

Aw, well...Whatever! x

Been working on my new blog!

I now have a poetry blog at:, in addition to my poetry website at:  There are Pros and Cons of using a Tripod free site vs using a blog, and I figure that I am better off using both, so that I benefit from the positive aspects of each method and hopefully reach more readers.

Poetry helps me so much.  It sounds OTT to say that poetry has saved my life at times, but I truly believe that it has.  Poetry - like all art forms, and all that is beautiful in this life - is a gift from The Divine - from the gods and goddesses.

Blessed be. x

It's been a year...

and I don't forget.

I looked up Stacey's Facebook page.  It's still there.  I started to look at it.  I don't know, it doesn't achieve much now, to look.  It just hurts.  I miss her so much and I have regrets.  I don't really know if I've written too many poems about her.  Is it too obsessive?  I don't know.

It is weird that Stacey died the day after Colin's birthday and a few days after my own (and so much was happening to us on that same day last year - ie: marriage nearly breaking up...)  Stacey's elder daughter told us a month and ten days later - ouch.  I don't know how I feel about anything anymore, and 2011 was such a difficult year, in just more ways than I can express.

I only met Stacey in 2008.  I wish that I'd met her sooner.  I wish that I hadn't found it so hard to get out and about and see her once I finished at the hospice shop.  I wish that I'd done more, in so many ways and on so many levels.

But I know that life is eternal, and I feel that Stacey is still here with me.  I can't say too much more.  I guess that I've said enough - probably too much, knowing me.

Correction! is the URL!!!!!! xxx


I am starting work on my poetry blog (after many false starts!)  Please check out:  There is only one poem on the new blog right now, but it's a start - and now that my NetBook is up and running, in addition to Colin's and my PC, internet access should be easier!!!

Also, don't forget to check out my Tripod poetry site:, which I regularly update.

Blessings to you all! xxx
