New days,new ways, new eras.

Getting ready to blow out that candle with Lucas !!!

Source

As years have gone by there have been so many new eras in my life.

The last hub I published on this topic was after the birth of our Prince George.

http://eiddwen.hubpages.com/hub/Come-Sit-By-Me-A-While-A-New-Baby-A-New-Era

Many questions arise on the subject of new eras.

"How do we know when we are entering another?"

"How often do they occur?"

I can only tell you of my own experiences.

Today is most certainly a new era for me.

Yesterday was my 55th birthday but I feel as if it was my 35th.

So what better a time for that new era once again and I have grown to use them as my guide line to try my hand at new tasks; new callings.

I had a wonderful day with family calling with cards; Birthday pressies and then Dai took me to the cinema last night to watch 'Diana'. It was brilliant !!!

Having worked my way through pain and sadness ( which I share in the hub above) to my life as it is today ; a life where I am finally a whole person who loves her life..


What has remained with me through the years is my love of nature and writing !!!Also my new hobbies of photography and creating collages of all genre.

Oh how as a young child I found so much solace Mother Nature's protective bosom.

At the end of this hub I share with you photos of the wonderful warmth and beauty of nature's treasures up in North Wales as we visited daughter Sue and her family.

I have included various Haiku poems ;a collection of sadness and beauty .



Take a seat.

I have deactivated my Facebook account which was a big decision to make. I loved sharing images ;sharing my page on our cats 'Tabs and Meg' and sharing the hubs of others on my page' A Brand New Dawn' but due to a personal matter I made the decision to leave.


I am disappointed that I had to leave but know for sure I have made the correct decision and that is what counts.

I have decided to use my Blogger account as a platform to creating new posts similar to the ones I had on Facebook and Pinterest to post my favourite photos and photos by others also..

Here's upwards and onwards to a life without Facebook which I know will work out brilliantly.

Once I make a decision I never retrace old ground .


However HubPages will always take priority as this is where my dear friends are and this is far more important to me than any material wealth.

You have been with me through thick and thin with me and for this I am eternally grateful.

My heart was heavy

My spirit a trace subdued

But my mind made up.

x

The green of the land

The sweet warmth of the sunshine

Fills my spirit so.

Source

Confusion weaving

A grave and bleak occasion

How to move forward.

x

Take a sweet moment

Learn to embrace great wonders

Believe in each one

Nightmares so knotted

Horizons blocked from one's view

Where is the daylight.

x

Dreams animated

A plethora of wonder

Nerves no longer fraught..

That combination

Of Mother Nature's meaning

A faith oh so true.

x

Stirring commotions

Great tales as of yet untold

Each wondrous blessing.

x

Those atagonisits

Delivered to their deserves

Sweet culminations.

x

To sing each aria

Corrosive meanings dispelled

Life's understanding.

Each phenomenon

A spiritual moment

Folk tales united.

x

Each meaning caressed

That desire to believe

Magical moments.


Thank you so very much to one and all and here I leave you with some photos I took as we walked around the small country village where my daughter and her family live in North Wales.

Here's wishing you all a wonderful day and lots of love from my little corner of Wales.

Eddy

Hi Dear Eddie. I am so sorry that you have been hounded from Facebook by some thuggish Oik. I cannot help with an alternative I am afraid.

I am overjoyed with the way you feel today after you traumas in the recent past. I am so glad that Dai is the rock upon which you and yours lean. Carry on with your lovely hubs, there are many of us who look forward to or almost daily treat.

Voted up and all.

Graham.

Dear Eddy, I hate that you have been harassed into leaving any place on the Web. I am certain that you can have this person banned, or at least ban them from your page. It might be worth it to check out the info pages on Facebook to find out the process. Other than that, I don't know of any alternative sites.

Your images are absolutely awesome. I can see why you have such a connection to nature--you are surrounded by its beauty. Inspirations abound!

I wish you a sweet and lovely day, and a belated 'Happy Birthday' my friend ;) Pearl

Like everything else in life FB has its good and bad and unfortunately its bad is people! So sorry you had to leave. Your blog should give you the opportunity to share your lovely photos.

Happy, happy, belated birthday dear one. "Take a sweet moment" and remember you are loved and appreciated.

Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

Eddy, why would anyone want to harass someone as sweet and giving as you? He'll pay his dues in the end.

As far as alternative places to go, you can use Pinterest for your photos. Or you could open a website on Word Press or Weebly or any of the other free sites out there and create your own page. People will have to subscribe in order to leave comments. You can deactivate anyone who is leaving inappropriate comments.

Your pictures and poems are beautiful. You live in such a lush, beautiful country, Eddy!

Happy birthday week. My day is today - 56. New eras are so bitchin cool. Awesome about facebook. From tragedy triumph flows. You know I live in the desert. And today I realized that your beautiful pics let me leave this dry earth for green abundance in your world. I need the cool waters and green things. Thanks for being you.

Hello, Eddy,

I, too, left facebook a little over a year ago.

It was an ugly event with someone that I do not even know.

It did not take long for me to realize that I did not need that kind of irritation from someone I don't know. I get plenty of that from my own family!! LOL

You are among friends with your HP family.

Loved your hub, as always.

DJ.

No crying over spilled milk...just full speed ahead and discover wonders around the next corner. Here's to you my friend, and to our friendship, and many more years of sharing.

love,

Oh Lord thank you so much ;your words mean so much. I am sure you have heard me say this before but even though there are negatives here in HubPages it is a community with so much to offer. I can remember saying rather haughtily not so long ago that it was impossible to make friends online How wrong was I??? I also count you amongst one of these treasured friend. Have a great weekend.

Dear Eddy, I'll miss those lovely kitty-cat photos on Facebook. I'm still there, but sometimes I get very frustrated with it, too, and don't use it very often. I'm so glad that you're staying on HubPages as I love reading your poems and those photos, like today's, are stunning.

Beautiful photos as always. So sorry you had to close your Facebook account. I have become rather bored with mine but hang on to it, as there are some old friends on it that I would never connect with otherwise. Do consider Pinterest, however, especially because your photos are so grand.
