On the shores of a brand new day.

Updated on May 17, 2014
Source

Today's hub may be the last for a while unless I have time for another next week because we are moving house. We are moving into a bungalow only 15 minutes away and right down by the beach. This also explains my absence from you all these past couple of weeks ; I also have to apologise that I will not have time to read any of your wonderful hubs either but wanted to let you all know the reason for my absence.

We are moving next weekend and I am looking forward to our new home and being so close to the sea as I grew up by the sea but also there is a beautiful coastal walk for miles around the Welsh Coast so I will not be starved of my love of the countryside either.

All in all my life is panning out just as I know it should.

This was an out of the blue chance which which we had to grab with both hands but the things which are meant for us in life often are.

Today's song is 'Rise Of The Phoenix' by Conchita; many of you will recognise this as the winner of this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

The message of this wonderful song and the brave Conchita touch me immensely. Oh how important it is that we find our true selves and that we this is the 'me' that we must present to the world.


'Peering from the mirror

No, that isn't me

stranger getting nearer

Who can this person be

You wouldn't know me at all today

From the fading light I fly

'I rise up to the sky

You threw me down
but

I'm gonna fly'

I hope you enjoy.

Source

On the breaking

of a brand new dawn

waves bring forth

in astonishing

almost unbelievable forces

which make the sunrise

reach forth

in

delirious tastes of gems

yet to be tried and tasted.

The noon sunshine

sees me absorbing

life's glories

each sense so aware

of the beauty

and

wondrously

sincere promises

of each of my days

to come.

Hand in hand

with Mother Nature's

countryside

are the seaside's

treasures

so precious

and for me to protect

eternally

oh so deeply in my being.

As the sunset

sinks in a glorious sphere

of true warmth

I feel my sated emotions

my true self worth

escalate to heights unknown;

and the waves

gently lapping

into and from

coves yet undiscovered

so like the days

yet to dawn

in my life.

The following pics are of the little seaside village to where we are moving..

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and take care one and all.

      I hope by now you are settled in your new home. I had to give up my home of 35 years, and now I live in a tiny apartment, but I'm happy here. One door closes and another one opens, right?

      Lovely poem and your photos are outstanding.

      The song is lovely. It looks like you are leaving your home behind to move to a lovely new place by the sea. Here's to a future of new and better experiences, and wonderful surprises unfolding through the years now and again.

      Voted up and awesome. Lovely pics sis. I've also always wanted to live by the sea. I live near a river so I guess for now it will have to do. Seeing those pics I know that we'll just have to gather up Sid and come visit you for swimming and fishing. Good luck in your new home.

      Eddy, happy moving! I hope you really enjoy living in your new abode. We walked along a cliff top somewhere along there. It was beautiful, the gorse was out and I'd had no idea before that it had such a lovely perfume. We came to a village in a little bay and when we walked on the beach we found a waterfall that flowed straight onto rocks and into the sea. God bless you.

      Awesome! Best of Luck on the New Adventure in Life and 'of' Life. I loved the poem as it spoke to my mind and heart with changes in my life recently. I had a sense of 'Mindfulness' instead of thinking of old memories. I saw the bush tits in the garden instead of an empty garden. Thank you for bringing awareness and mindfulness to me for those moments through your truly inspirational and revealing words of life and of wisdom.
