    And still, I Rise

    18th February 2017   Read more

    Coincidences, signifiers of being on track, keeping us onwards, promoting more radical trust more and more and I continue forging this pathway of the freedom warrior, the not-putting-up-with-this-bullshit babe! It is a path lit with true shining souls, particularly women. Women supporting women, women recognising themselves in the other, women who want more & more […]



    What is success?

    15th January 2017   Read more

    From the ‘sweet smell of’ to the ‘if at first you don’t…’ mantra instilled into us as children, success is a many faceted fellow and as such requires a healthy dose of perception to percolate it’s honest truth. To be seen to be successful is quite different to feelings of personal success. How many stories do […]



    Magic £5’er ~ Charity begins with you

    16th November 2016   Read more

    It was suggested somewhere that when we received our first new shiny £5 note to donate it to charity – where this is indeed a commendable act, I also believe that charity can begin at home. I saw a video where one was being used to play an old record, I’d like to try & play […]

    Conscious Writing

    17th April 2016   Read more

    Are we all writing more? What with blog & social media posts requiring our play with and on words to fizzle up readers through a moment of enticement, to share salient observations, in the flow of life. We can be both entranced by and challenged to be able to effectively transpose ideas into suitably expressive words […]



    Balancing belief

    29th March 2016   Read more

    How us humans love to experience the drama-pull of extremes, they do seem to be more intense and so we feel them much more than the middle ground – it makes us feel more alive maybe? Whereas to be in the middle, in balance, like this beautifully plumed bird illustrates, a-straddling a tree, is where […]



    Stars ~ not just for Christmas

    15th February 2016   Read more

    Reconnection and recollection. As you may know, I’ve been on a marathon de-clutter for the last 18 months, including giving up a permanent home until recently, which has given me many opportunities to choose whether I wish to keep saved items and believe me, it is a gradual yet mighty process. Yes some things had […]
