Remembering to be Me

Aloha! I’m coming to you today from sunny Lucerne! I’ve got my arse parked on my beach towel, the dampness of the grass seeping through, and I’m hash-tagging outdooroffice all over my brain. Whoa life is good! Firstly, I wanted to say welcome to y’all – the faithful and the new and those just passing […]

Coming Out and into the wide arms of the World Web

I have been thinking a lot about spirituality this past weekend. It came after listening to Gina DeVee coach a client on Friday night – an Australian woman expressing how she wanted to incorporate spirituality into her coaching business but was afraid of being judged by her friends, family and society at large. She believed […]

Friday in the light

Well, that experiment of writing for a week did nothing to kill my inner critic. You know that guy? It’s the voice of the ego, telling you you’re shit and you shouldn’t try. The only thing that shuts the voice up is the act of doing. So here I am. On Tuesday I tried to […]

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, […]

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 […]

out of the dumpster and into the daylight

Everyone should have a blog! Seriously. It is so nice to be able to say ‘I feel like shit’ and get a response. The act of revealing my true feelings was liberating in itself.  It was great to just confess to my downer, rather than slapping on a coat of white paint and an exaggerated […]

adventures in wonderland : the barista, the music-maker and us!

It was a Sunday afternoon in Luzern when the epiphany rolled into the living room. I had been looking at Facebook. It was just a quick session (which is the best kind I think) – I read a few comments people had written in response to some photos I’d posted and I replied to them […]

My Guru-Goddesses

Authors need blogs. I learnt this today from a blog. And so here I am, attempting to find out, “Is there a blog in me?” For the past four years I have avoided blogs, fearing that they’d inspire that same sense of inadequacy that great books do… and TV specials about the lives of     celebrities […]
