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…

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…

A History of My Obsession With Words

My obsession with words
Came alive with a door
I remember as a child
No older than four
That door
Connecting me to our kitchen
Adorned with postcards
Connecting me to my father’s heart

#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…

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…

Music & Lyrics

Happy Bank Holiday Monday! I’ve been blogging all day for work, writing up all my youth talks (11 years worth!). Whilst I’m in the swing of it I thought why not, get the last of the sunshine and write an extra post for this week! One of the last talks I wrote up had me…
