at night

as i lie in bed unable to sleep

my soul is awake

i can feel it tingling


that there is beauty and possibilities all around

all i have to do is open my heart…


much love xxx

    Wishing full realization of many possibilities for you, my dear. What you wrote on my blog about your son so moved me. You’re a good, good momma. xo

    Such a simple, beautiful post. Thank you for reminding me that the new year is not just about setting ridiculous goals but about simply being open to new possibilities.
    I hope you’ve had a beautiful xmas and start to 2012.

    I love this, Leah…Your poem. Having possibilities is the greatest gift.
    I wrote this suggestion in reply to one of your comments, but just in case, I will also write it here. Once you get your new camera, I found these great online photography classes you might find interesting – Nicole’s Classes (http://nicolesclasses.bigcartel.com/category/online-full-courses).
    PS~I’m loving all of your photos on Instagram. Thanks for teaching me how to find and follow ;)

    Noreen and I are on the same wavelength! I’m thinking about you too and hoping all is well. I am really struggling with the stress of getting our next visa to stay in the UK and this post reminded me that I can lie awake at night and worry, or I can allow peace to enter my soul and know that even a denied visa would leave nothing but opportunity. x, Beth

    I’m thinking of you too, and just want to say hello. Hope all is well, and that the lack of posts is only a healthy break from the computer. Lots of love from Sweden / Maria
