Hello friends, Have you ever made a decision and then realised a few weeks later, life has taken over and you have completely forgotten about that goal? Always? Thank goodness I’m in familiar company! I wanted to upload every week in May. I even made that commitment to someone in a hope it would satisfy…

The First Bridge

Something about bridges Arriving late to my last Writing, Coffee & Conversation Workshop was partly my fault. I could have got the underground but I was desperate to go back to Flat Cap coffee and it wasn’t that far! Only, as you may have read in my previous post I’d forgotten about tourists and instgram models….

The Middle Zone

Waiting in the unknown in the middle zone not seeing just holding on to what was spoken a token of hope, pressing into your palm imprinting it’s pattern to your skin reminding you again and again that this is the wait and not the end Waiting because it’s all you can do waiting bringing questions…

Year 11

Today I woke up remebering a today from the past. Waking up and realising my whole life had just turned upside down and nothing would ever be the same. And you said “take courage” and I did. Yet I didn’t realise that courage doesn’t always take the form of a lion; boldness not always identified…

Nonchalant

  Sitting in a local cafe remind myself that part of my deepening in 2019 is to write more. Yet often the words come faster than the ink can flow, so I capture the words in part on my phone. Often they are sleepy as the inpiration unearths itself around midnight and I can’t sleep…

Peace

She stands, waiting for dinner to cook. Waiting for the kettle to boil. Usually she’d scroll, but slowly your calling her heart to meditate on better things. Twice today, no three times, you have spoken to her about peace. Four if you count the song aswell. She’ll count the song aswell. Four times you have…

Never

You know that I never told you, that the first day we met you calmed my fear And the day I cried so much you healed me with your audacity to just walk into my mess and sit with me And you know I never told you you still make me smile and, the memories…

Joy to the World

She sits, learning to accept silence Today has made her smile And she’s not even sure why She takes in a deep breath And turns to your word I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you;…

Change

Two minutes ago the train was empty. Now she sits surrounded by men talking about football using language unknown to her. She’s thinking about what she wrote yesterday about craving. Having just successfully completed a 21 day sugar detox, thoughts are connecting in her mind linking her learning from the detox to her musings in…
