brief history etc….

José Paronella arrived in Australia from Catalonia in Spain, in 1913. For the next 11 years he worked, cutting sugar cane initially, then purchasing, improving, and reselling cane farms. In 1924 he returned to Spain and married Margarita in 1925. The trip back to Australia was their honeymoon…… read more here

senses working overtime…

…trying to taste the difference tween a lemon and lime

pain and pleasure, and the church bells softly chime

sour PussyFoot … !

Trying to tell the difference ‘tween the goods and crimes
Dirt and treasure
And there’s one, two, three, four, five
Senses working overtime

Stepping on toes…

When offering to help, or simply choosing to share an affectionate moment with others, leads to getting in the way EG..

Being too pushy and eager to fit in, to be accepted or included, is perceived as taking something away from someone else – bringing matters to a head REMINDER… try keeping a level head instead of reacting

Rubbing someone the wrong way – Simply by being playful and happy and willing to share the joy can irritate others, make allowances.   Attempting the hands-on approach when they are not ready or able to receive might upset some !

an annoying little hint…

An irritating persistent parasite out to steal whatever they can – Flea in your ear ?

Compelled to vamp your energy with a view to intimidate until you concede defeat

Ruffling one’s feathers EG. When curiosity looks like riding on someone else’s back while searching for answers or seeking a higher perspective.  Wind direction and grim forecast can also play havoc.

When someone plays the victim or abuser role triggering fear based anger …THAT  really gets my goat and brings out the Boxer in others

Basket case or sandwich short of a picnic? – when everything gets too much and you are declared as emotionally unstable even a nervous wreck… hang in there!

If you are pushed to the limit.. take a breath and find that state of mind marked by concentration – put on your thinking cat and KEEP CALM

and remember, despite our differences we are all in this together

PussyFoot observations and recent experiences… prescribed remedy –

Laugh it off (with compassionate tones) what the people need is a way to make them smile…

collaborative effort

It’s the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, “Let me out!”

And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves

PussyFoot finds relief with music and laughter

 

 

 

 

 

Lowered EYE Que

Noise calculations and eye examinations

Under the impression I’m always wrong

Lifelong lessons adding to my collection

Longing to sing in harmonious song

 

Valuable exchanges as life rearranges

Organised chaos I’ll have to accept

Interrupted by perception pointing in a new direction

Demoted feelings remained well kept

PussyFoot problems and perception… go join the Far Que

 

i lit the match

For some time now PussyFooters warm to this idea

the flames of fantasy year after year

singe of wings its a match of burning desires

the little devil on his shoulder

stuck a deal with her undercover lucifer

an open invitation steers them into temptation to act out

longing to ignite their passion

and send that moral compass spinning

sparks will fly with the slightest thought of sinning

with a fraction too much friction

just remember the stick people

discover how they became extinct

ashes to ashes said the powder monkey

his guardian angel finds a dust pan clunky and

points her guiding light-master to the nearest broom

don’t linger longer and give into temptation

seriously consider the con of sequences

patterns of the past and becoming

dust in the wind

PussyFoot warning received (again)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Down and backwards in high heels

The energy is stuck

Half way between my head and my heart

It’s rising up

It’s slipping down

It’s swirling and it builds

Trying to gather information

Trying to let things go

Trying not to notice

To allow the pain to show

To combat the forces surrounding

To accept the inevitable change

Move forward without resistance

Move with Broadway and its waves

Move like Ginger Rogers

Down and backwards in high heels

Down on the same old dance floor

Down with Fred to learn how it feels

Can i just lighten my heavy load

Can we choose an easier way

Can we bypass roads to Hollywood

You know truth will always sway

You and I we share the same dreams

You don’t have to give anything up

Help me to purify this water

Help me to fill my own cup

Help dances through this liquid tune

Me, I and You already know

You can take a well earned bow for

Us…. at the final curtain to this show

 

Down and Backwards in high heels!!

Reel life divine partnership

sugar and spice…

…and all things nice

When we were young

we wrestled with reasons

wrangling the whys and wherefores

You always let me come out on top

and it’s you I have always adored

Now we are older and wiser my friend

and invariably we still lose the plot

Once again let’s honour the goddess within

here inside with memories we forgot

Our hearts shone with the warmth of truth

one bended knee had broken the ice

Windows of opportunity wiped clean

sharing Eskimo kisses with sugar and spice

PussyFoot wonders what little boys are made of !

One Step Ahead

I tried to find my way back to you

but the path had mysteriously dissolved

There were things i wanted to tell you

many things i wanted to share with you

now they are left dangling like split ends

I stopped there for some time flatfooted

At the place where we left off

That space where we laughed without a care

Enjoying each other’s company

Feeling like every day was a holiday

And believing it would never end

Those days of fire

There was an air of sadness left behind

I smell something familiar but it was gone in a second

No amount of deep breathing could return that day

Only fragments remained

Sprinkled like fairy dust and scattered too sparsely to collect

It was gone and sadly reminding me was a song in the distance

A tune you once hummed while you were working

I loved to watch you as you carefully handled things

Joyfully and playfully I see our hearts

Skipping over the beat

Like teenagers fumbling with love

We shared many moments

which i had strung together like pearls

and methodically I rotate each one

to relive the precious feelings

I filled the spaces in between with plastic beads

many colours shapes and sizes

they were reminders that did not compare

nothing compares

your eyes sparkled with every smile you opened

every gentle touch was infused with love

the many chuckles in resistance

struggling to hold back laughter

confirming the snug fit we had found

within each other

the mischievous one and

the rebel without a cause

Where are you now?

I think of you so often

It’s because I’m looking inside

this open heartscape

How will I find you again?

I suspect you discovered your wings

And flew ahead of us

So I will keep moving forward

With loving hope and renewed faith

Believing you may be clearing the road ahead

For us stragglers

Always one step ahead and ready for anything

I love that about you

That’s what keeps me going

Pussyfoot hot on the trail….. Only one step behind
