Stay

One of the reasons I started Audrey was to explore my love of words and practice writing. I wrote about one of my favourite words: somehow. But now I'm thinking of another, equally poignant one - stay. Stay makes me think of things that have become reliable thanks to their familiarity. There's a sense of security… Continue reading Stay

Goodbye for now

I feel sad to announce that this will be the last Audrey post for a while. It's a long story but the crux is that, as well as being really busy with work and uni, I need to process my thoughts before I can contemplate sharing them. I could write paragraphs and still not communicate… Continue reading Goodbye for now

Why I write

Words are magical. Here's why I write mine down. This morning someone asked me why I write. I hesitated, considering my answer. "To express the things I don't know how to communicate in any other way." I responded. "Yeah," came the reply, "But why do you have to publish them? Why don't you keep it… Continue reading Why I write

Silence

I've written about words. Now, I'm thinking about something I love just as much: its polar opposite - silence. If you know me, you know I love words. I love the way they can be channelled into a stream of meaning and expression. But words, whether constructed into eloquent sentences or jumbled into awkward utterances… Continue reading Silence

I've arrived at the element I find most inspiring: Air. It's funny, but I noticed that my post about Earth seems quite grounded. In… Continue reading The Element Of Air

I recently discovered Yoga with Kassandra on YouTube and was immediately attracted to her elements series. Four practices, each dedicated to one of the elements. Honouring and emulating the designated element's characteristics. Using each one's unique powers as a… Continue reading The Element of Earth

For The Love Of Dr. Seuss

Last week I shared a quote from Oh The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss. It's too much of a gem to not share more. I love Oh The Places You'll Go. I think it’s one of the marvellous Dr. Seuss’s most fantastic works. It follows a little human through the voyage of life. Pushing boundaries.… Continue reading For The Love Of Dr. Seuss

Somehow

There's something magical about words; for me, one in particular. I love words. I love the way they can be moulded into a form of expression, collected to create a book; the way they compliment each other in a poem or are assembled in a quote... Words combine to create something that is much more… Continue reading Somehow
