Lights

I’m in post-show slump house is a mess props and script are still in their spot by the door I feel like they belong there now and I have this alter-ego that now needs not to speak again words that won’t make sense anymore phrases that need to be unremembered people I won’t see three evenings…

Tiny

T I N Y • sometimes the little details are essential • been planning some ideas for next year • little pieces of light • today I watched someone who notices tiny details   put courage into someone and take an arrow to some lies • i want to become more like this person • tiny…

BIG

This year I chose to focus. In focussing I was enabled to have big adventures.  If you read much of this blog, you will know I have a passion about being fearless. I think too many of us live from a place for fear and it dictates our attitides and behaviours.  In 2017 I have…

Splash

Maybe I overestimated how tired Panto would make me… Day 11 of blogmas and the prompt is splash; which really does sum up today. Today was rather grey and miserable and therefore working from home was not going to be an option. Laptop packed I headed down to The Yard Faversham for some long-awaited caffeine! I…

Art

Today one of the boys at work made this reindeer today!  Over the month he has made quite a few and each has been named. Not all the names were predictable but today as he wandered in and out of our office looking for a red pen, it was obvious what name would christen this…

Partial

It’s dress rehearsal tonight. I’ve been reading through the script relearning lines I have now learnt; knowing one day in three years time I’ll be sat in a doctors surgery or stood in a queue and they will suddenly run themselves through my brain. As I’m reading through these words I know, I’ve been reminding…

Family

They say you can’t choose your family. I don’t think that’s entirely true. It just depends on how you define the word. As someone who moved away from my parental home at 18, finding family where I am has been important to me. I never thought I’d be in Kent. The plan was Birmingham, Kent…

Realism 

Today’s prompt was free choice. I’ve been undecided between two photos but my hearts rested on this one. I like to think I’m a realist, but within me it is really a strive for perfection that gets frustrated or upset when it’s not achieved. I can come across negative when that is not my heart…

Pause…

Welcome to advent!  I don’t know about you but I am definetly that person saying “how is it december already?!” Opening night of the Panto is in less than a week, we are all preparing, expectant, hopeful…. And yet this prepearation does not leave me with a sense of slowing down, peace or calm rather…

Murder Mystery Party

Hello, So, it’s been a while, I thought maybe I should explain myself, not that I need to justify anything, rather as a document or memory to why there is such a gap. Mostly it’s because I’m in the local pantomime, something had to go to allow for rehearsals and line learning I’ve also been tired, lacklustre…

To the Creatives

Creativity often evolves from who we are. We put ourselves into the music we play, the words we write, the art we produce. We become vulnerable. It’s why many of us will choose to hold our creativity close and not let it out to the world. Recently I was chatting with someone about how when…
