The Importance of Beauty

July 22nd, 2009 · 7 Comments

Sometimes we really are too busy to notice the beauty, hear the melody or appreciate a fine turn of phrase, aren’t we? Sometimes we’re even too busy to notice a certain look in the eyes of someone we love. A look that says I Love You. But it’s those very things, the sunrise that takes [...]

Making time to clear space for living

April 21st, 2009 · 3 Comments

Yesterday morning, with a full to-do list and a busy, busy week, I discovered my laptop would not connect to the internet. The wireless is definitely acting up and I’ve tried everything I know short of throwing the thing out the window. For the sake of my own stress levels, I’ve shut it down and [...]

An Ode to Summer

January 29th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summers day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. ~John Lubbock Summer, glorious summer. We complain about the heat and about the humidity. Today I found myself feeling very [...]

Clearing Space and Expectations

September 3rd, 2008 · 6 Comments

Once again, I’m learning lessons about how my mind works. When you stop doing something you’ve been doing for as long as you can remember, (in my case, working as an employee), you fully expect to free up these huge gobs of time every week. And in those enormous hours, you’d be justified in thinking [...]

Simplicity

July 6th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction. ~E.F. Schumacker I don’t profess to be a genius, and I know that I often tend to complicate matters when I think I am [...]

An SOB? Me? Who'd believe it???

June 2nd, 2008 · 4 Comments

I am honoured, thrilled, and slightly overwhelmed (and just a tad lost for words) at my inclusion on the gorgeous Liz Strauss’ SOB list. (And for the Aussies, nope, not that sort of SOB.) This sort of SOB: It stands for Successful and Outstanding Blogger. And it’s very much a badge of honour. Thank you [...]

Thunderplumps and rainbows and other magical things…

May 20th, 2008 · 12 Comments

Hmmm… with a title like that, you’re entitled to think I’ve lost the plot or something. Let me see if I can explain. I love this thing called blogging. And I love the connections that the internet brings my way, that allow me to make friends in far off places. If you’d told me 10 [...]

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

April 21st, 2008 · 15 Comments

Three years ago, I started a journey. I took my first steps full of trepidation, wondering how they would be received. Slowly I grew in confidence while all the time searching for the right thing to say. I knew, right from the start, that I was meant to do this. It was in my blood [...]
