Golden Hour

And gentle whispers of rain

I danced upon the sparkling shores

Illuminated by golden light

These pictures were taken during a beautiful midweek adventure with my family to Hillarys Boat Harbour. Enlivened by the elements, we played along the shoreline, watched rainbows appearing before our eyes, and felt the warm caress of misty rains. I remembered a paragraph from a book I read many years ago now called The Alchemist. It sang true for me in this moment of golden bliss, as I pondered on the precious moments we spend here on earth in this lifetime.

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” ~ Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist.

There is something so magical about that golden hour as the sun is setting….there is no need to explain it, as we all feel it and know it, hence why we are drawn to watching them with awe, gratitude and reverence.

Wherever you are on this glorious, beautiful planet, I hope to inspire you to go drink in the beauty of a sunrise or a sunset and feel that magical life force energy of mother earth.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx

The Tapestry of Life

Weave the tapestry of your life with love and all will appear as divine art 

An outfit inspired by a love of texture, structure and design. Being such a visual person, I’m forever excited by the richness that surrounds me in every moment. I’m drawn to clothes and jewels that ignite my senses, both flowing and structured, layered with texture, and beautiful thought out details. Anything that jingles is an added bonus for this modern day gypsy woman :)

As I adorned myself this day, in pieces of absolute art, I pondered on the concept of life being like a rich tapestry. Both sides equally beautiful in their own right. The underside chaotic, knotty, tangled and frayed. And the other displaying it’s perfect order, intricate patterning, majestic beauty. Both sides equally important and necessary for it’s existence. In life we so often reject the uncomfortable, chaotic and sometimes darker side of our nature and lives. Where life feels as jumbled as the underside of the tapestry. The flip side is to experience a life of love, abundance and effortless ease. Where life flows without worries of the past or tomorrow. When life feels more like the messy frayed tapestry, I try to surrender to what is, love and accept what is, and I so often find myself effortlessly and naturally return to the other side.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
