Clare Flourish by Clare Flourish - 4h ago

This social group practises consensual touch, and I have been held and cuddled this weekend. I feel revivified, warmed, cared for. It is a wonderful exercise, and quite simple. In pairs, one touched the other. The other responds yes, to consent, no to veto such touching, “Pause” to consider, or “please” to show enthusiasm. The […]

The meadow is a place for meditative walking, being aware. It is a human space, made and controlled for a purpose. Walking barefoot is slightly uncomfortable with the thickest stems. The crescendo from the left, viewed from the main house, emphasises that tree.

Cutting it fine for my train, after lunch I dashed back to the cathedral. The sun would now be shining on its west end. That lantern, and the “book” advertising that the cathedral is 900 years old, shows this view is not designed for the photographer. I cannot get the whole in the frame without […]

It’s lovely when someone understands. I had a difficult morning. My phone was not displaying my emails. Then the banking app was not working. Then I cycled to Zhuzhkov fifteen minutes early so I could go to the bank. Then I spent twenty minutes in the bank, waiting or talking to two different staff members […]

The affirmation of Pride may live with me. Walking as people cheer is a wonderful experience. I started seeing people on the train to London. That sequined coat is surely for Pride. Walking from the station to Portland Place I saw t-shirts with pride slogans, and felt I was there already. We met in a […]

Omphale the Queen subdues Hercules the hero, forcing him to take up her distaff, a tool for spinning thread and symbol of feminine labour. Often, she is shown holding his club. It is a legend artists return to over the centuries. Here she holds him by the neck as he cowers, draped in pink. Boulanger, […]

My mantra is I am here. This is. I am. My aim is to sustain mindful, present awareness through a walk I have done hundreds of times. It is a warm, sunny day. As I walk down the road I notice a pain in the Achilles tendon. Should I go back for a prophylactic ankle […]

In very real ways, soul, consciousness, love, and the Holy Spirit are one and the same. Each of these point to something that is larger than the individual, shlarger than the individual, shared with God, ubiquitous, and even eternal—and then revealed through us! Richard Rohr When I say I am a materialist, I am doubting […]

I am delighted to read The Planets by Brian Cox. After the end of the Cassini, Juno and New Horizons missions is a perfect time for a popular survey of what we know of the solar system, and it is relaxing to know that if Professor Cox says Saturn’s rings are less than a hundred […]
