Finding my spark ...

It's time for a bit of a catch-up ... to let you know what I've been up to ...

well ...

if you really want to see what I've been doing just click away here to be transported into my second home in cyberspace.  It was something of a challenge for me, and to be honest I was all blogged out by the time I'd worked on that for a while and had no umph left to write here.  But that's all fixed now :)

Now for the picture up above.  I found my geranium candle the other day - sometimes I like to burn a candle as I work, something to reflect on and if it smells nice that's an added bonus!  This candle was given to me over 20 years ago (eek!) by my sister (I remember the length of time so well as this candle went to university with me and that was a long time ago!) - I'm not sure she even remembers giving it to me, but as it flickered I thought of her and she was with me as I worked.  I felt happy :)  I love candles as to me they symbolize a light in the darkness, a spark of life that leads me neatly onto my next subject ... (I should get an award for my linking skills - and they told me I was useless at English at school!)

Today I went to a day course on the Spark of Life which is a program used in dementia care.  It offers a different paradigm for caring for dementia patients - based on real connection and relationships - heart centred care.  If you want to learn more, visit the Dementia Care Australia website.  I'm going to write more on an international creative arts project being run by Spark of Life, which anyone is free to enter.  For now just start to think about the thing or things that ignite your spark - what is your reason for living - what gives you joy - what is your passion in life?

So think on that and I'll explain more in my next post - oh and don't forget to visit my little site I've been busy creating.  xx
