Something drew me to my blog today. Perhaps it was procrastination. I’d like to think it was something far greater. Perhaps an inner stirring that I could no longer ignore. Or maybe a need to come home to a place where I feel free to explore, share and engage. The one thing I do know […]

Moments change lives – sometimes irrevocably, sometimes momentarily, all too often unnoticed. If we stop and think about it we’d say that our lives were full of moments. We could possibly even list the significant ones, but what about all the others, all the moments like a look, a smile, a touch, a reflection … […]

I love this reflection by Brother David Steindl-Rast where he invites us to become aware of the constant miracle we live in. I have watched this many times and its message still has the same impact on me today as it did the first time I heard it. As we are being inundated by doom […]

I bought myself a new handbag the other day. It is big and I am still not used to carrying it around. It feels like a modern day black leather version of Mary Poppin’s bottomless carpet bag. I have been searching for the ‘right’ bag for a while now. My new bag had to meet […]

This quiz consists of ten questions on a variety of trivia which always seems to spark interesting conversations, debate and a whole lot […]

This evening I attended a celebration at Parliament honouring the contribution Croatians have made to New Zealand since the first settlers arrived in 1858. Today, 150 years later, life is very different for over 100,000 New Zealanders who claim Croatian heritage thanks to the hard work and determination of their (and my) ancestors. They have […]

I received an email this morning from a friend in Austin, Texas. The subject line said “This will warm you” and the message was a link to a video. My first reaction to that what I was watching was one of scepticism. “Is this for real?” I asked my husband. As I watched the video […]

You cannot change the cards you are dealt. Just how you play the hand. Randy Pausch I have written about Randy Pausch a few times in my blog. I feel as though he is a personal acquaintance yet I have never met this man and I never will. For months a daily ritual of mine […]
