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 [...]

A simple cure for 'tomorrow-itis'

March 20th, 2008 · No Comments

  What are you waiting for? Today is the first day of the rest of your life. You will never be younger than you are today. Imagine – at the end of 2008 you’ll be a year older. In 2018 you’ll be ten years older than you are right now. There has never been a [...]

Every day is a new day… every year a new year

January 14th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. -Ralph Waldo Emerson ahhh, [...]

January 11th, 2008 · 2 Comments

  No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place ~Zen Saying No snowflake ever falls in Brisbane, but that’s not the point. I’m thinking about the new year. January and an impending holiday does that. I plan to do nothing. Relax. Sit. Enjoy. Unwind. Free the mind. My inbox has been flooded this past week [...]

Why and What do you Celebrate?

December 22nd, 2007 · 5 Comments

Why do you celebrate Christmas? What do you celebrate at Christmas? With my life pared back to bare bones during our renovation and narry a bauble in sight, let alone a tree or piles of beautifully wrapped gifts, I find those two questions popping into my mind. When you take away the tree, when you [...]

What does a domestic goddess have to do with time management?

November 29th, 2007 · 5 Comments

I don’t believe in time “management”. Every single person on this planet has the same number of nanoseconds in their day as every single other human being on this planet. So how come some are always complaining about not having enough time, and others just get on with it? We cannot “manage” time – we [...]

Endings and beginnings, learning to let go

November 20th, 2007 · 8 Comments

The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it. ~ Marcus Aurelius Antoninus My eldest son, Captain Scarlett, graduated from school last week. It seems only yesterday I was leaving him for his first day at school. That morning where he said ‘bye Mum!’, and sat, entranced by his teacher and oblivious [...]

Holding the space for mystery, miracles & questions

November 11th, 2007 · No Comments

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvellous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose [...]

Blog Action Day – Gratitude in Pictures

October 15th, 2007 · 6 Comments

Since I was three years old, October 15 has always been about my brother’s birthday (Happy B’day Mark!) but this year, it’s also about something bigger, more all encompassing (although, of course, no more important ;- ) I like to start my week with joy. Filling Mondays with precious inspiration helps the week start the [...]
