Why?

It's funny how, sometimes, everything seems to support a certain thing. Despite being really busy lately, so much that I've read or come across has led me to contemplate a particular question (and one I first verbalised at nine months old): 'Why?' 'Why' is a question that constantly bounces amongst my brain cells. I have an insatiable… Continue reading Why?

Seeing in the dark

Does everything really happen for a reason? Will it ever all make sense? I wonder... Autumn is already on its sly way into 2018. Twilight creeps in earlier every day and the leaves are already starting to die on their branches as the trees prepare for rest and renewal. I adore autumn: like a crab… Continue reading Seeing in the dark

‘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?'.

The Element of Water

I never intended to do an elements series, but after thinking about the Earth element, I've been dwelling on the other three too. Basically, I'm on a roll with the elements and I'm hoping you'll roll with me. Like a Mexican wave. Talking of waves... Water. Now, in this blog post, I could share my… Continue reading The Element of Water

A Thing Called Love

Love is like a bee, stubbornly buzzing in the heart. Maybe there’s a reason... It's funny, fear is often viewed in an uncomplicated way - it’s simply fear. That gut-churning apprehension when you're waiting for bad news to be disclosed. That fluttering anxiousness that precedes a venture into the unknown. Phobias, danger - one feeling: fear. Not… Continue reading A Thing Called Love
