the genius and the teacher

No man is your enemy, no man is your friend. Every man is your teacher. A likely story. But not so easy to accept when we are not in tune with someone else or we just don’t see eye-to-eye or we’re not on the same page or we’re at each others throats. Know what I …

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 …

the story of all creation

Phew! Now that I’ve got out what I wanted to say about my desk, I can carry on with what I actually wanted to write about before I got blown off course. Okay, I promise that was the last of the nautical metaphors. Today a pure white sky sits beyond the rooftops and the wind is …

a day in the life of a girl getting high

The day back to work after the holiday is hardly the best one of the year. I woke up with a vague sense of depression. I was in a daze. I had only been away a week, but I didn’t know how I was ever going to work again. Could I still do it? Then …

the journey home – part 2

And on with the manifesting talk she goes! At the moment I am taking two online courses. One is called The Feminine Art of Manifesting with Rose Cole and Gina DeVee (which is not exclusively for women) and the other is The Abundant Creative with Melissa D’Antoni. Both of them had recommended reading The Game of Life …

the journey home – part 1

I have found my new bible. The Game of Life and How To Play it. Or maybe it’s not the bible but just a new testament that’s been unearthed, revealed itself, and I am taking the words as the gospel. As is always the way, this book has come at the perfect time. I’ve quit …

be. here. now. (the joy of being)

Today I’d like to talk to you about my favourite verb – be. It is Thursday evening and I’m feeling fried. I work too much. And I can’t understand people who say they work 70 hours a week. I don’t know how this is possible. Whatever happened to legalising the 4 day weekend? What happened …

great expectations

In case y’all don’t know too much about Switzerland, besides what can be gathered from a Lindt packet, let me just tell you that she is not just a pretty face. This is a land of contradiction and controversy.  Practicality, progressiveness and tradition sit side by side, somewhat harmoniously – just like the three languages …

Sick Day for the Soul

Today is a beautiful day. Beautiful, not for the traditional reasons (see above), but because I am home alone and  sick. Who doesn’t love sick days? I am so grateful to be sick today. As kids, we knew what was good, right? We were so wise, we knew the meaning of ‘fake it till you …
