Error noted, course corrected, unexpected revelation, freedom

Leaving Port Wellington on the ferry to Days Bay

Sometimes I just have to recognise that I've flubbed. Do something about it, and move on. This is one of those times, and it feels so good to have realised, and acted.

Plodding through a whirlwind

Hurricane Sandy

Right now there's so much going on I can only just manage to keep putting one foot in front of the other. It's wild in here. Things are changing so fast there's no point in trying to keep up, only to go with it. And through it all the inner shifts keep coming ...

A week inside my world - how I dealt with finding a large lump in my breast

I walk past this walled garden most days on my way to work. I keep noticing the shadows cast by the gate.

This is the story of me dealing with finding a large lump in one breast. It's not often that a discrete piece of growth and self development illuminates how I navigate the deep places in my life, but here you have one. I hope you'll see inside my growth process, and understand a little bit about how I cope (or not) when things don't appear to be hunky dory.

New Zealand fur seals on Wellington's south coast

For my birthday this year, I grabbed a bunch of friends and did the Seal Coast Safari. Took lots of photos, of course. And was reminded to celebrate Me.

An ordinary miracle - I'm standing up

... me ... ensyth-maddy ...

ensyth step back, and now I must stand in my own mastery instead of in their shadow. It's strange here in the silence, but powerful.

How we set up our puzzle here and how you help us solve it

... the Peace Garden at Wellington Botanical Gardens ...

Imagine you're from another plane of existence and you've never been on Earth before, and you want to come to Earth to take a different approach to solving an unsolvable problem.

How do you set it up so all the pieces of the puzzle are in place, and how do you 'stack your bets' so you're most likely to solve the puzzle rather than getting lost in it?

And when you start to solve the puzzle, how do you go about healing yourself as you go along?

Our puzzle of individuality and love and separate connectedness

... blue paint hand print in brilliant orange lichen on a lamp post near my house ...

Maddy's virus has glugged up her brain, and gives us opportunity to talk with you. So this is our story. Our journey, our reason for being here. And by the way... that's you!

Reflections in the place of not knowing

... reflections in the pool at the Katherine Mansfield memorial ...

The story of my beloved's debilitating illness, recovery and relapse, and the perfection of dissolving illusions of relationship. And about Being Love.

You... We... are One Creator (and aren't the conjunct planets beautiful?)

Jupiter and Venus conjunct on a beautiful summer evening

The stillness and beauty of the planetary conjunction is like the surface of a fast flowing glassy surfaced river which hides the powerful current. So it is in my life... rapid and profound change leaves me gasping for breath even as I revel in it.
