After hanging up from a Skype call with my daughter in London this evening I stumbled across this video clip on YouTube of The Goodnight Kiwi. I remembered this nightly ritual that appeared on our television screens and felt a warm glow inside. I was transported back to a time when things were very different […]

I was oblivious to the fact that today is no ordinary Friday. It is Friday the thirteenth; a day loaded with all sorts of superstitions and the unfortunate reputation of being an unlucky day. There are many different theories about the origin of 13 being considered an unlucky number. Tracing the superstitions back, the earliest […]

The wind is howling outside. I love the sounds it makes as it weaves its way through everything and everyone that crosses its path. It moves with such ferocity and is completely unrelenting, yet I find it invigorating and energising. As the wind blows through you it clears out the cobwebs and you know you’re […]

Last year I attempted a project where I committed to taking a photo a day for 365 days. If you look at my Flickr page dedicated to this project you will notice there are not 365 photos for you to look at. Some sceptics (including myself) would not be surprised by this. I still haven’t […]

I was standing in the shower this morning luxuriating in the transformative power of the streaming water as it enveloped my body. My whole being is invigorated by this daily activity.

Dr Jill Bolte Taylor is an extraordinary scientist. It is no wonder she was named as one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential in the World for 2008. On the morning of 10 December 1996 she awoke to a pounding pain behind her left eye due to a blood vessel exploding in the left half […]

At the moment I am reading one of the journals of May Sarton: Journal of a Solitude. In it she writes of the dichotomy of needing to be with people while at the same time needing to be alone with her thoughts in an aesthetically pleasing environment. I am here alone for the first time […]

It was a Saturday morning. Actually, I remember the date – it was the 1st of March. I had woken early and I was at my computer working. The sound of the phone ringing pierced the silence. I had been lost in my thoughts and the wonders of the unfolding day for a few hours […]

I wrote your name in the sand but the waves washed it away, then I wrote it in the sky but the wind blew it away, so I wrote it in my heart and that’s where it will stay. Unknown Cards, flowers, and presents have been purchased, and plans made for yet another Valentine’s Day. […]

I have my list beside me. Written on it are all the things that I need to complete today in preparation for the week ahead. The weekend always goes so fast and I never seem to get everything completed that I had hoped to. As per usual I am allowing myself to be diverted from […]
