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 […]

From Force to Flow

Oh the irony! How could I have forgotten – Simplicity – one of my three chosen key words. But forget I did. Somehow, over the past couple of weeks I found myself caught up in that sticky energy of ‘trying’ to write my next blog post. Despite numerous attempts the words simply didn’t flow. After […]

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. What I hadn’t bargained for was receiving some unexpected […]
