Listening

This week I have been quiet, even by my standards (and I’m already a fairly quiet person). I wrote on Instagram the other day: ‘I’ve been quiet this week, sometimes you just need that. Something has shifted, and the realigning of perspectives, coupled with the jump in volume on my CI, has been tiring. Not…

Tea and Sharing

Tonight was a good night, a night of sharing ideas and thoughts about a friend’s new venture. I will reveal more soon…but it was a good night. I came across a magazine I had bought on a whim a couple of years ago, that was sitting patiently in a magazine file box…and was struck with…

50 Things

Shh – let me tell you a little secret. I missed a day. At least, a NaNoPoblano/NaBloPoMo day. However, I am going to rewind time…and this post will still be posted on the 22nd of November, even though it is the 23rd of November today. Oh, the things we can do…    I was searching…

Reconnection

“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.

It’s that time again. Sunday night has rolled around. The new week is about to begin. Here’s a little bit of inspiration to get things started… “You either run towards that which connects you, or run from it.” – Oscar Isaac “She understood that the hardest times in life to go through were when you…

After A While

After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul and you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning and company doesn’t always mean security. And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises and you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and…

Open Heart

Writing every day this month has been good, but it’s not been without challenges. Some days you stare at the screen and wonder what you should be writing. Some days you look at the screen and you’re just too tired to pull the words out. Then there are the days where you want to write,…

Bloom

I’m feeling a tad sorry for myself. I’ve got a stinking cold. This afternoon I had a couple of spare hours, and I mostly spent them in cafes in Central London, sipping tea, and then coffee, and people-watching. I had plans to write a blog post tonight, but all I want right now is a…

Quiet

“The highly sensitive [introverted] tend to be philosophical or spiritual in their orientation, rather than materialistic or hedonistic. They dislike small talk. They often describe themselves as creative or intuitive. They dream vividly, and can often recall their dreams the next day. They love music, nature, art, physical beauty. They feel exceptionally strong emotions–sometimes acute…
