Loves of September

I suggested it, you wanted it and now you're gonna get it! Except for the people who didn't vote on my online poll and are in no way responsible for Audrey's new 'monthly faves' feature... and will also have no idea what I'm talking about. Anyways, here's my loves of September:   TV Show: 'Babylon Berlin' I can't remember how I came across… Continue reading Loves of September

Some thoughts about forgiveness

I'm currently reading a wonderful book called Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting by Lynn Grabhorn. Today I read her thoughts on forgiveness... I'm going to digress here slightly to share that I've been encouraged to write lighter blog posts. Less deep, less complex, less intense. Essentially, less me. But I honestly believe that the… Continue reading Some thoughts about forgiveness

‘Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning.’

I love the line, 'Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning', in Peter Pan. But maybe the question isn't 'Where's my North Star?' but, 'Will I follow it?'.

Life is confusing, arduous, painful... but this… Continue reading Dwelling in Darkness

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

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
