Never judge on appearance… or… Susan Boyle's Got Talent!

April 16th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Oh boy. I have tears in my eyes and goosebumps on my goosebumps. I may be the last person on the planet to see this, but if you haven’t yet seen this wonderfully dowdy lady from a village in UK blow Simon Cowell’s mind (and change the mind of all those rolling their eyes and [...]

Sit quietly and be calm

March 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

Sit quietly doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself. ~Zen Wisdom I’ve just settled back at my desk after mowing our lawn (with the ride-on mower – we have two acres:) and this saying sprang to mind. Even though it’s late summer our grass is lush and green and seems to grow [...]

a miracle moment

March 19th, 2009 · 5 Comments

It was one of those days. I’d spent most of it in the car, to and fro, an unpaid taxi driver… and the last straw was having to sit and wait for Gorgeous Girl as she finished her ride and then unsaddled, washed, rugged and fed her horse before we could go home. I felt [...]

I was reminded again this morning of this beautiful quote from Marianne Williamson in A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles: Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most [...]

Happy New Year to all…

December 31st, 2008 · No Comments

And now let us welcome the New Year – full of things that have never been… ~Rainer Maria Rilke Tonight we see out another year. Where it’s gone, I’m not sure. It seems to have flown by in the blink of an eye, yet I am having a hard time remembering New Year’s Eve 2007… [...]

Our duty to be happy

August 8th, 2008 · 12 Comments

There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy. By being happy we sow anonymous benefits upon the world. Robert Louis Stevenson I often think about being happy, what makes us happy and what stops us feeling content. (Drives my family crazy!) On one of those thinking expeditions a few [...]

The fringe benefits of failure… learning (more) from JK Rowling

June 10th, 2008 · 3 Comments

If you’ve been around for a while, you’ll know that I – and my whole family – are Potter fans. We’ve devoured the books, we’ve worn out the movies… and we keep going back for more. Over the weekend, I was thrilled to find the clip and the transcript of JK Rowling giving the commencement [...]

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 [...]

Starting my week… in the present moment

May 19th, 2008 · 7 Comments

Life is not a someday thing or a one day thing. It is a right now, everyday thing. Life is in the living, every hour of every day. ~source unknown On this beautiful Monday morning, I found this poem a powerful reminder! I’ve been thinking a lot about the future and needed the reminder that [...]
