October 18th, 2007 · No Comments

Last night I had a facial. I had booked it because my skin has been particularly sensitive lately – rather than for the relaxation factor. Got there. Lay down.

Just Breathe…

August 29th, 2007 · 2 Comments

The tension. The tightness of muscles. The furrow in the forehead. The clenched fist. The pain in the temples. The thoughts competing in a Grand Prix event in your head. Sometimes what we most need to do is simple. Breathe. More than automatic breathing. Stop and notice your breathing. In. Out. In. Out. Close your [...]

A spot of gardening – Erasing catastrophy and chaos

July 16th, 2007 · No Comments

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and making a new ending. Maria Robinson Today, all the kids are (finally) back at school after winter holidays.

You'll never walk alone…

June 19th, 2007 · 1 Comment
