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….

Write what you can

At the beginning of the year I wrote a post around my word for 2019 which is to Deepen. Reading back through it even today, I can see where I am beginning to see fruit and also where I am needing to intentionally push down even more. What has helped has been to set aside time on…

Blue

Welcome to Blue Monday I’ve seen a lot today about the dreaded Blue Monday. Contrary to common belief, Blue Monday is not a particularly scientific formulation. It is, I believe, a very clever marketing technique that has created a life of its own and perhaps even become a self fulfilling prophecy. Don’t get me wring,…

What Wakes Me Up

I can’t believe its almost a month since I last posted. My fingers aren’t so quick on the letters, my mind is struggling to remember how to piece thought together. I know if I sit and plan, it will never get written. I have a notebook full of drafts to prove this. A stream of…

The last time I cried

Nothing is Ordinary

Focus February Update: well I’ve managed to get one big job done! The doors in my house are now all finally painted. Money wise I’ve noted it’s when I’m tired that the ‘extra’ bits find their way into my shopping bag. I’ve realised I’ve spent about £10 extra this month on food I dont really…

Today I am…

Creative Writing: Today I am
Anticipating
Mildly excited
And aware the caffeine has not yet
made its way to my mind

Setting Your Goals

I set my goals and resolutions as a punishment to what I haven’t achieved, fearful of not being ‘enough’, hoping the destination will bring me whatever I believe it gives me that perfect life. This year I want them to be driven from a place of grace and love.

Tis the Season 

Tis the season …. to receive    That’s a bit controversial! We talk a lot about how it is good to give and of course it is; henerosity is beautiful. Yet so is the ability to receive. As we come to the end of advent; remember is a preparation of our hearts to rest and…
