Colour Your World

Colour Your World 

- BOLDer!

Once upon a time, ok it was twelve years ago and the big millennium change, I was given a Colouring Calendar. Ha, you say, but those humble home baked pictures made such a mark on my year. It got to be that I relished each month claiming that piece of time to open and play so much that all kinds of other magic overflowed in my life. My world came alive!

I started to write and made more pictures that covered the walls. The serendipity flowed. I made an amazing new circle of friends. Fell into our dream house and brought home our first baby. Then came a second and and a home of our own, then my true work of helping others to find their creativity, their joy and their flow. I still have those colourings, they remind me of the magic they’d suggested and the wonder I remembered and the joy I found inside.

So over the past few months I’ve been hard at work creating something pretty sweet to give back. It started out just pictures then I couldn’t help but keep adding more and more fun tips.

It’s a Big Kids Colouring-e Book rolled up with juicy prompts to remembering your mojo.
And it’s the fun perfect starter to getting out your shining confident Self.
And here it is tied with a bow :)

For every grown up who is still willing to explore, to experiment, to play this is dedicated to YOU!

And still, truth is, to billions of people on the planet the idea of “playing” is an inconceivable luxury. This is dedicated to them too!

Thanks for sharing Kaye!!!!
That is SO cool!
I love it.
Going to print it up and colour it in.
Gosh – it’s up there with the Sark stuff only you get to do the colours for yourself!

puzzle pieces are meant to be wonky

If we were all the same
there'd be no space to try things out
to make mistakes
to try again
another way

we might just roll along the same old way
or sit real still
afraid to play

I'd rather be all lumpy
and take the road that's

cos you never know
who you might meet
if you don't take off your socks and show
your funny jumpy feet



Hello dear Twitterers

Welcome to my branch
so lovely to hear your voice
touching light across the trees
leaving sweet song sparkles
drifting in the breeze

or or see you flying steep across the skies
strong call wide sweep shadow
fast across the ground

your sharp keen eye and long claw grasp
bend deep and spring to launch
seeing far and flying high
wise and sharp and clear

or your light as air
and breath and mist
magic glyphs revealed

so glad to see you
stop a moment
here in my small tree
sometime home
cheeky Australian parrot
sometime to quirky Swiss blaumeisen

I hope your rest was sweet and
rewarded with a seed
a trinket, a shinybright idea

to carry on
to share along
with the bees of
cross pollination :)

Thank you Kaye for facilitating the Wrap-Up & Set-Up. It seems to make a huge difference having someone guide one through and hold an open, loving space – keeping it simple and asking the poignant questions that trigger realisation and revelation. I hadn’t realised just how challenged the year had felt (for me) and how with hindsight, planning and innocent desire I can influence the future – bringing me closer to a year I’d like to have.

Thanks to Kaye Llewelyn for your great coaching on the call to set our goals for 2012! It's amazing what we all accomplished in a one hour call! I am totally empowered and feelin' COURAGEOUS :) You rock , girl.  Indra Teacher
Kaye, thanks so much for the wrap up session at the end of 2011, it was so helpful and I keep referring back to the notes I made. It really helped me to get things in focus, even pointing out the 'little' things, you know like getting drawers in order and stuff like that. Also the online format worked really well, and was very user friendly.  Leanne Berelowitz - Artist. Teacher. Mama

playing footsies with my fly-tribe

magic afoot - boots in confetti bombed Basler Fasnacht
There's wonder everywhere
What a magical mystery tour it's been
the flying carpet ride daring to step out into
the big world moving to the other side of the earth
the wide web world of multitude flowering creativity
the internal backroads and forgotten corners that have been waiting to come out and play

Having family and friends to write home to or skype in a moment of crosstime connection
My man in the other room playing his own game
And my fly-tribe out there paving their own ways
sharing their lessons and learnings
their tips and tools
wearing their own shoes and sharing the journey

It was their idea to share shoes together - on this day
and laughed cos I'd been doing just that
I started in spring and we pulled down our house - well half of it
Then we left home and I could have had wings or airplane sox ;)
If I'd had sandles with henna red dust that'd be india
then my favourite reds in the new lands autumn/herbst/fall
the boots came out for winter
the wooly deep in snow
and the shiny black buckled speeding ski kind

now the spring is here 
so out come the reds again
ready to jump then
I look forward to the summer
and seeing my toes

it's a jump over the old and up to the new . . .

who said it - 
"to really know someone - walk a mile in their shoes"
thank you all for sharing your journeys
here I sit today on my birthday in these
slippers knitted by the inimitable Joan
mother of two of my dearest friends and
knitter for many a spirit seekers feet,
musing on my mother who borned me today, many years ago
and all the places I've been since then . . .

tea, me and reverie

finding YOUR way - it's not about winning

So I'm in the mountains again but this time to cheer on Oliver who is skiing in the Engadine Ski Marathon. He set doing this for the first time as his challenge of the year. It starts in his parents winter hometown so the going there wasn't a big deal but to see the place transformed as the 11,000 + skiers lined up and the disco music blasted and warm up crew had them all YMCAing was fun. Then the heart rousing 1492 theme counted them down to the big start. And off they went all charged.

It reminded me of the Swiss version of the City to Surf. It's never been my thing. How do you find your way in that sea of people? But this time I met it with new eyes and I saw that you could only find your way. There are maybe a couple of hundred who have any chance of actually winning so it's not about that for most. It's about having a go. It's about their personal best. For some that means time, some placing, some it's about the laughs and the team spirit and just making it.

We cheered on Snow White and her 7 Dwarfs, there were Pink Panthers and Disco Fro's, a Nun,  a Friar and a good gang of Mohawks. So you can do it with flair or bright coloured hair. We met the Bear. She was usually the fastest of her group but what the heck this time she was almost an hour longer - oh but the smiles she got and the fun and laughter gave her 2012 race the joy she was after.
Her father at 85 was making his 44th race and the guy on the train had the badges of 
all 17 he'd been in. And every one different. Everyone, in their own way.

Oliver got back with a first success and a new benchmark, the Bear came back with a Cheshire grin, the Grandpa a broken arm but still a smile, the man on the train with a new orange badge 
and a glow from inside.

What challenge have you set yourself ? 
It doesn't have to be a race. Where will you have a go? 
Then more importantly and much more significantly -  how do you want to play?

turn the corner

navigation - from a farewell gift to find my way

I set out under this big brand new sky
to plot a course in a new hemisphere and
amid the sparkles and orbits of the vast
wide web world
casting out nets and bringing them in
full of gems and treasures and shiny things
lost for days
found in moments

what's my way and how do I play?
questions bring me back
how do I turn off the lights
dazzling outside and redirect them
to finding that one light inside?

quietly waiting
to be cupped and protected
from the winds and words of the unsuspected.
Held and grown till it radiates wide
and is set off to slide

onto the rivers of its own


I had plenty of warnings but I guess I had to really feel it - lost in the swirling webby world. I know about boundaries to keep the baddies out but what about the ones to keep the wonderful at bay while I remember the wonderful in me? And let it's sparkle be the light that shines my way.

My feet hit ground today - and here's what I want to say:

My new tips for wild wooly web navigation . . .

* Go with a purpose - write a big note - WHAT FOR? - what's my intention for this next adventure?

* When you're out there leave a trail - breadcrumbs even to find your way home - don't just hover, drop down too, leave a hello or a thank you note. Bookmark for returns but then come on home - 
late night  parties will burn you out.

* Back home take a moment to recall where you've been and for all those beauties that you've read and seen acknowledge within you, your own particular gleam.

* Jump up and down walk down the street, remember you come in a body with feet.

* Speak to someone who knows you well, about the kids or the dogs or the weather. Then witness yourself speak about where you've been, who you are now from it and 
what you're gonna do about it. . .

* Then you're ready to take the step off the curb into your way - turn off the browser and tune in to that one thing - your choosing for today!

ps. this stuff works for any kind of lost

How's your navigation going? Do you have your star to guide by? Your compass set? Stand on the corner look both ways, where have you been? Where do you want to go? But most importantly - 
How do you want it to feel when you get there? 
Plot your own course to there!

Hey and if you need help
I'm right here


How are your wishes going?

How are your projects unfolding? Needing some tweaking? Refining? Defining?

Any time is a good time to check in with your settings where is your ‘you-are-here’ spot and not only where is the X marking, but how do you want to arrive? 

You can celebrate any time 
your right now and all that got you here

then make a wish for your next moment

like my old fave Guru Adrian used to say ‘Celebrate Your Birthday Everyday',
Every breath of inspiration is a chance to express the whole of you.

Here’s to living life with courage, learning with joy and leaving a trail of love!

a pact and a reminder

all I have = always enough

Out there I can tumble around and around
roaming and admiring
getting great ideas


but hey, enough already
thanks Rama
you snapped me back from the vortex

inspiration is one thing
but it's nothing without the integration
yeah stop and digest all that stuff
and still nothing without putting in some action

so I say to me
make a response. say hello. say hey thank you

then switch them off and
switch me on

How do you
get back to you?

make your own mark

ok not mine :)

somewhere in here
grin factor

Ok so I'm not there yet
no pristine lines that stand out far from the crowd
just one of the mob
having a go

but having a go I am now
drawing a few lines
on the snow and in my book
trying not to always compare with others
but looking ahead for inspiration.
What a mix to find my own line within

It's bringing back all my years of surfing
and I hear myself say to my children
when they start to slump
you know you do your best skiing when you smile

and I remember
I call it
the grin factor

songline - what's your path

whats my song
the one that's mine?

to sing
that rings

what resonates with me
the one my soul wants life to see?

looking around seeing all and yours
I need to come back, return
to mine

hold it in
contain, that I may focus
hold true
to the resonance

align to the rhyme that is mine

I so love the interlinked roaming in the wild webbed world of all your creativity, I could swim for a day . . . and then I need to come home.
Put on my blinkers and focus in to find my own words again, the pictures that come.
Light a candle, look at the sea, wake up early, touch the dew . . .

How do you get home to you?
