Rubiks Cube

“my brain is the sort that at the mention of an idea, an event, or a problem; creates a thousand possibilities in a moment. Yet it is too fearful to pick even one and so I waver” Recently I was talking to a friend, another creative, who is often able to see what I am…

This is Spring

If you were to describe yourself as a season – which would you choose? I think, hands down, I am a spring personality: a little chaotic, always seeking the new, unpredictable in my energy levels and require support and nurture for growth. If you have read my blog for a while, you will know that I use the…

Faith & Creative Writing

As part of a series on creativity in our church. I was asked to speak on using creative writing in worship. I opened with this spoken word. Good morning, today I have been asked to speak on using words creatively to worship. There is so much I want to say which I won’t; so I…

#FRIYAY

Last weekend I had a rare full Saturday with no planned activities and so took myself up to Reculver to sit in a cafe on the seafront and take some time to write. Sitting there with a savoury crepe filling my senses, staring our the ‘square porthole’ to the sea as if someone had pre-styled me…

#focusfebruary

Do you ever feel part of a grand detective adventure? I have a great love for detective stories and adventures. From the famous Five and Nancey Drew to Midsomer Murders getting me through university revision to the plethora of films and stories that now fill my watchlist and to ‘Vera’, my new found favourite which in…

Investment Piece

I spent the whole of today thinking about finances. Well, when I say thinking I mean first I was checking, then surprised by a bill (in the not so good way), then worrying, then calm came and just now an insta-friend announced a no spend month… and so here I am back thinking about money!…

Faithful

There are times when our knowledge of what is true and our experiences seem to match up. Then there are times where they don’t, yet we have faith in the unseen. Then days, weeks, months arrive when what we know to be true seems vastly different to the lens we perceive the world through. Sometimes we can…

Out of the box

Lately, I have noticed a trend in myself; that there are things I was convinced I had experienced and not liked, which I realise now I haven’t even tiptoed into. This all began when I found my way back to one of my childhood joys – reading! I remember that I used to sneak torches…

A Zeal for Life

In my last post, I was talking about finding me again. That post kind of got hijacked by a stream of consciousness (my preferred way to write), what I had meant to write was only about the final P: Passion, rather not such a P but more a Z. Zeal Passion is continuing to be the…

Finding Me 

Lately, I’ve been struggling with the motivation to write anything. I think every blogger I know goes through these times, not all of us know why. This weekend I have had some time away from home and I think that helps. Not that I don’t love my home – I do; just sometimes you need…
