Share the Love

Celebrate the people you love because who knows when things might change? We can’t help pushing forward with our own wants and desires but we have to make time for love. Love for partners, family, and friends. Whoever makes your heart crack when you think about missing them. Without giving our love we are just… Continue reading Share the Love

Thinking About, Thoughts for a day., Writing ideas

Sage

Okay. This is my first blog in a long time and I'm doing something I don't usually do and posting without drafting first. This is a bit intense-sort of like public speaking without practicing but if I don't do it I never will. I probably wouldn't advise this as a long term public platform strategy… Continue reading Sage

New Writer Thoughts, Thinking About, Thoughts for a day., Writing ideas

'The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.' Auguste Rodin This quote is so simple and beautiful I wanted to share it. It is a reminder to be present not bystanders in our lives. Our lives are always see-sawing, trying to balance, to find equilibrium and sometimes we… Continue reading

Find your tail

There is a Pima story from Southern Arizona which has always made me smile. My favourite version is from the book, And It Is Still That Way, which I found when I was living with my grandmother in America. One night all the dogs gathered for a dance in a field. Dogs came from far and… Continue reading Find your tail

Do You Need Creative Inspiration?

You know sometimes we are so bombarded by where we should be finding inspiration that we can forget to look around us.

Have A Nice Day

When I was little my favourite piece of clothing was a pair of dungarees with a yellow embroidered patch on the bib. Written across it, in bright rainbow letters, were the words, Have A Nice Day. And whenever I wore those dungarees I did. I’d run into the playground, pigtails flying, happy and excited about… Continue reading Have A Nice Day

Get out of that comfort zone.

Daughter  She's running on the beach, ahead of me, free. I can’t run, I’m too old. I can’t run, I’m too old. The tide tumbles in, less dry sand paths between the trails of seeping sea. Less places for lazy, sensible feet to land. Water leaks into my shoes, cold, unwanted, wet. I trot faster, tiptoeing,… Continue reading Get out of that comfort zone.

Beetroots

  There’s no denying I’m often sucked into the latest health crazes and judging by the size of the industry I’m not alone. So what is it with the health world which lures us to rush head long into a mambo class, when you’ve got as much dance experience as a corn cob, or buy… Continue reading Beetroots

Time to get spontaneous

  Okay, so recently I’ve been erring on the conservative side. I actually think it’s time for me to shake things up a bit and put some energy back into my life. Change it up and bring back the spontaneity. Why? Because I quite like my impulsive free self and I’ve lost her recently. So… Continue reading Time to get spontaneous
