Awakening Change

Misty Tranquility at Loch Awe Scotland.JPG
It takes but one stone
To break the tranquility
Of peaceful slumber.

Nothing is ever the same, as the ripples of change spill like liquid silver across the water.
They roll in mercurial hoops, out towards the edges,
And yet, the hills and the sky, the sun and the water all remain.
The earth keeps turning
And our breath flows ever outwards and inwards
As we rest our feet on the soft green earth of Alba.

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home with my husband, my son and a collection of cats and dogs. I am forever snapping shots of things which catch my eye. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist, and run the Maggies Highlands Cancer Centre, in Inverness, Scotland.

    If a miss the day’s meditation, I’ll come back to this post (again and again).

    How do you do this?
    You write so descriptively and beautifully, and the photo is gorgeous.
    By the way, I was so glad to see your post … hope all is well.

    • Thank you, it’s lovely to get such praise 🙂
      I couldn’t quite find my blogging mojo after my last holiday up to Lewis, but I have enjoyed the break. It’s been a funny summer full of change and it’s left me a little blue at times. It’s good to be back, but so many blogs to catch up on!

        It’s so challenging when the blues seem to take hold of us. I’m very glad you had a nice break away and hope that you are feeling like you again soon.
        No doubt about it … blogging is a joy and a job.
        Take your time getting back. We’ll be here!

    As beautiful as always – a light in my day!

    and nobody weeps for the poor, drowned stone.

  9. You captured that image magnificently. How do you always manage to do that??

    • I’m not sure that I do Kellie….but perhaps I only show the ones which worked 🙂
      Trial and error is definitely my process!
      The real frustration is when you can see with your eyes exactly what you want to capture….but it eludes the lens. This shot however did work…..pure Scottish magic!

  10. What a lovely shot and beautiful words to go with it.

  11. Lucid Gypsy says:

    I’ll carry this with me through the day thank you Seonaid. Good to see you!

  12. gwynnrogers says:

    So amazing and zen. Love it!

  14. Carol Ann says:

    You have one on the most innovative and creative blogs on the internet. I appreciate your talent and creativity.

  15. Colline says:

    Your photo is beautiful – as well as the words you have written.

    • Thank you Colline. It was a beautiful moment, and we arrived at just the right time as the sunlight spilled through the clouds and low hanging mist. Everything was bathed in silence…..until the skimming stone 🙂

  16. I enjoyed that. So well done. Your thoughts and your writing are important. D

    Stunning image and words of great truth

  18. Happy to read you again, I’ll soon catch up with your blog. Have a nice autumn. 🙂

Let me know your thoughts on my post...I love feedback :-)
