One Word Photo Challenge: seafoam.

Stress relief... my way with cWe all get stressed out, at some point and we all have our coping mechanisms, don’t we?. These are a couple of mine and as they vaguely resemble the shade of green, defined as seafoam  this is my contribution to the One Word Photo Challenge, as organised by Jennifer: a big thanks, as usual to her.

I have dipped into this book , over the years. It is one of the many books in my possession that I absorb in an effort to calm myself  down. I am somewhat highly strung, at times. Although, I am mellowing as I mature. I make myself sound like a smelly, old cheese! I’m a big fan of self-help; because, basically if you can’t help yourself, how can you expect others to help you? We’re all responsible for our own actions and lives, in my book : and actually the above book.

In my quest to become super – chilled ,I have become a big fan of loom knitting. Because:

  • It is a bit like weaving, which I enjoy doing
  • There are no knitting needles to stab myself with
  • It’s a lot easier that knitting with needles
  • It involves elements of croqueting; which I also like
  • One can knit and gossip/gawp at the TV/ talk on the phone, quite easily

I personally find it very relaxing and creative. As for the wool… the amazing colours and types can keep me captive in a wool shop for hours on end… so much choice.

So, to sit and knit is a vital part of my wellbeing.

Many moons ago, I started to write. But, as life twisted and turned the only thing I got to write was letters, in my job. Things changed, I left my job and returned to the writing. I have loads of ideas and very little time to do them in.( Sound familiar?) I write, because I need to. When I am unable to write I walk in the shadow of madness. Some folk would argue that I'm there already. As well as writing, I read, paint, garden, knit and have just started making candles. I am owned by a retired greyhound called Daisy. My previous greyhound(Misty) was the inspiration to get writing again. Daisy is keeping that inspiration alive. Thanks for reading. Dorne x

  1. I miss my cat; she was lovely to pet. I used to like to lie on the bed and listen to her purr, next to me. A lovely deep purr that shook the bed.
    I don’t know what our greyhound would make of a cat!
    I also paint [badly]. It helps me to unwind.
    I love your artwork as well.


Go on...make my day/life and leave a comment. I don't bite...much!
