Transformation

These past two years have been some of the most transformative of my life! It started with the crumbling of my life after surgery and radiation, deleting all my YouTube videos accidentally, and led to the epiphany that I had been striving my whole life and just had to be here now. I had no […]

Internal Sunshine for an EPIC 2014

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me and I’m feeling good… Happy New Year! It’s a new me, it’s a new you … There’s something special about this time of year, right? January sings with renewed hope. There’s fresh air in our lungs. The collective consciousness is upbeat. […]

Vanity : the new black

The hot topic on a breakfast show this week was teenagers posting selfies taken at funerals, pulling faces and stuff, at times with their dead grand-parents. A grey bobbed lady was outraged at the lack of respect, the other two presenters less so. Perhaps the grand-parents were not that nice or they weren’t that close, […]

Emancipation : the sequel

My friend just had a baby! It was an empowering experience for her and she got exactly what she wanted. Why? Because she said ‘no’. She said ‘no’ to the epidural and being induced and ‘yes’ to researching, reading, preparing her body and mind and taking the power back. What an inspiration! And I’m not […]

Saturday Night Love-In!

Why hello there friend! Here I am on day TWO of the ‘Seven Day Challenge’, sounding like Lisa Curry-Kenny (she was an Australian swim star who retired to do muesli bar commercials). Already I feel like I’ve signed up for a triathlon. But I will push on and persist because that’s the kind of focused and dedicated […]

Oh to be Frank!

Hi guys! I wanted to speak to you directly to get closer. Hi. How are you? Me? I’m o-kay. I’ve got blog fright actually. I’ve been feeling shy, self-conscious and silly. I was going to put this off for another day but I thought I’d try something different and just say what is on my […]

keeper of the secrets

The human race seems to be separated into two groups – those who keep a journal and those who do not. I’m not saying that one is better than the other (because clearly I’d be biased if I did), but as a compulsive journaler, I just don’t know how the other group gets on in […]

making love on a thursday…

Together since the world began; the madman and the lover. I found those words in the pre-pages of The Doors biography I read when I was fifteen. Those words spoke to me then. I knew what it meant to be mad and in love. This is what fifteen-year-old girls know. These words placed together so […]

one day baby we’ll be old…

Okay so maybe it wasn’t the best idea to write the post on inspiration when I was feeling uninspired. Did it get me in the mood? Not this time. I still felt steam-rolled afterwards, like I couldn’t catch my breath and was limping around lopsided, like the hunchback of Luzern. Call me melodramatic, call me […]
