Sunshine, Celebration and Solstice

Tomorrow is Summer Solstice; we are entering the season of growth and maturation. My internal season has changed, rather like a flower tightly in a bud suddenly popping open I’m experiencing an internal summer. The birds are rejoicing outside and I am brimming with joy and anticipation as I await the arrival of my granddaughter. […]

Falling in Love

The past month has whizzed by. Moving house has taken a lot of my energy. It has been such a long, drawn out process that began back in January 2016. I moved here knowing full well that the house needed a complete refurbishment. It was clearly devoid of any form of love or appreciation from […]

The Power of Transition

Thinking about my life right now, I keep likening it to giving birth. The excitement, the anticipation plus the challenge and sheer amount of hard work to keeping going. I told a friend this week “It feels as if I’ve been in labour for the past two years… and now I’m in transition”. The transition […]

Relationships, Family and Truth.

I always thought that the hardest thing in my life would be losing my Dad. It wasn’t. That was hard, really hard and his death had a profound effect on me, but the hardest thing I have ever had to do was something I never imagined happening and that was to make the decision to […]
