Endings and Completions

The last few days leading up to Christmas I noticed myself falling into old patterns and behaviours; simplicity temporarily slipped out of the back door. I got caught in a spin, putting everyone else's needs in place, making myself small, quashing myself like a scrunched up paper ball which left little time or space for [...]

Winter Solstice 12/12/16

The year of the wheel turns once again with the shortest day of the year and as it does so, it seems as if an internal switch has also been flicked on. Maybe it's the spirit of Christmas, peace and goodwill to all men, but I feel an inner contentment as we head once more [...]

We Get What We Need Not What We Want

I've been feeling unsettled this past week. I know I'm not alone, I think the whole world has felt pretty much the same. As the news that shocked us all last Wednesday I decided to escape from social media. Away from that added 'noise' that was crowding my senses I was able to see the [...]

When God Laughs At Your Plans

So.......I announce my intention for the coming year in my initial blog post feeling excited, liberated and expanded as I look forward to the gift of time and space to discover who I am becoming as I begin the rite of passage from Mother to Elder.
