As priceless as your unburdened face


5.8.2015 country long nice walk (62)-1-

Good tidings to someone who really deserved it, is what inspired this poem.

Lips are made for smiles,
Feet tap to the beat of a joyful heart
Ears, capture the vibrations of victory &
Eyes, mirror the reflection of life’s paillette.

Time is now to honour life,
Celebrate & venerate its beauty
Crash through high tides &
Assess the futility of worry.

Be as free as the wriggly faces of a new born
Dare break down the fences of conventions
Walk & skip along frilled narrow lanes
Pick up the struggling caterpillar

Gently helping it down on to the familiarity
Of grass, ITS civilization, escaping
Temporarily the harshness of asphalt.
Those are the biggest triumphs…

And as priceless as your unburdened face.

Amazing Lives – Coma Miracle – patients in a coma are being woken with a sleeping drug


If this post could help or give the slightest hope to one person out there, it would have been worthwhile. I would consider myself the luckiest & privileged to have stumbled upon this video.
Here, patients locked in a vegetative state are miraculously being woken with a sleeping drug called, Stilnox a South African brand name for Zolpidem.

Published on 2 Jul 2014
In a small South African town, patients locked in a vegetative state are miraculously being woken with a sleeping drug. Dr Wally Nel, the local GP who stumbled upon this phenomenon, has now helped hundreds of brain damaged patients and may be the verge of an extraordinary medical breakthrough. The film contains a television first when Diana, a woman locked in a barely conscious state speaks for the first time in three years. It also features Louis, the first patient woken by the drug seven years ago. A new brain scan reveals some startling results which suggest that the sleeping pill may actually trigger regeneration of brain cells.

How plastic bags are used to save the lives of premature babies


This is the very short but extraordinary story. A proof that sometimes small ideas can make big differences. The ones that can save a life.

How plastic bags are used to save the lives of premature babies

Pink, tiny and birdlike, doctors did not expect newborn Pixie Griffiths-Grant to survive longer than an hour.
Delivered three months premature by Caesarean section, she was lighter than half a bag of sugar and smaller than her mother’s hand.
As she was rushed to intensive care, her parents faced the devastating prospect she may not make it.
But doctors saved her life by immediately bundling her into put her into a Tesco sandwich bag, which kept her warm and mimicked the conditions of her mother’s womb.
After overcoming infections, operations, and blood transfusions, Pixie, now five months old, is at home with her family, and is thriving.

Pixie’s mother Sharon Grant, 37, said: ‘As soon as she was born, they gave her a little hat and put her straight into the bag to keep her body temperature up.
‘After that they wrapped her in bubble wrap and got her straight to intensive care.
‘It was so random that they had her in the Tesco bag – it must have just been what the operating theatre had at the time.’
Mrs Grant, of Goonhavern, Cornwall, was forced to give birth three months early after scans revealed her unborn baby had stopped growing in the womb at just 20 weeks.

The first-time mother, who runs Floral Fancies florist in Perranporth, Cornwall, said: ‘My placenta and umbilical cord weren’t feeding her properly.
‘I was in and out of hospital for eight weeks being scanned constantly to see if she had grown, but she put on about 20g in those eight weeks.
‘It was so scary having to get her checked all the time and I had all the doctors telling me all this bad news. It was awful.
‘They wanted to get her to a certain weight before they delivered her, but she wasn’t growing to that size.’
At about 6pm on May 11 – 28 weeks into her pregnancy – doctors told Mrs Grant that she needed to have her baby that day.

Since beginning the motherhood portrait in oil painting I have ventured in the thrill of texture from another angle and have tremendous pleasure with its results.
Sea in all seasons is my passion which makes this creative moment one of delight & inspiration.

Bonfire 4 Finally complete 100/160cm


Bonfire 4 100-160m. 19.10.2015-a-1-

This is (most probably) the last of the four Bonfires in this collection.
I went bigger with this canvas (twenty centimeters taller than the previous one).
What I like with painting is that each project of the same theme is unique in its own right.
I never let go of my paintings until I am so complete & happy with it they become my babies 😉
How do you compare them & which one is your favorite?
