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 […]

My Beautiful Mess : free-basing metaphoria (because it’s Christmas!)

Hello my friends! My time here in Perth is coming to an end. Yep, in three days’ time I’ll be leaving and, though I am sad in the way that I always will be, I am also not sad to be going back to Lucerne. Yes, not sad. It’s time to get back to my […]

the Victim and the Victor

I’m in looooove! Yes! It’s happened again. I’ve been swept off my feet! Swept up and swept away – this time by Caroline Myss, Ph.D. I’ve set sail on her words and I’m not coming back. You do know how I love to fall in love … So who is this Caroline Myss, Ph. D.? […]

Lessons in Emancipation

A strange thing happened last Tuesday… I said ‘no’. And it made me realise how much I normally say ‘yes’. It felt good to refuse for a change. It had been a very hard day and I felt it was ‘justified’. The people I said ‘no’ to were also totally cool about it and understanding. I […]

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 […]

What if you had faith?

Hello lovely people! Here I am again up bright and early on day one of the challenge (I am writing this in the AM). It was a night of sleeping more restless than usual, as nights when I publish a post always are. My creativity and ego battled it out, each one struggling to gain […]

One small step for man…

I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. This is one of the top five regrets of the dying. But what does it mean to live a life true to yourself? From the time we’re born we’re looking to our parents to teach […]

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 […]

Pulp Fiction

Do you ever feel like you are about to combust? If you would like to be comforted by someone else’s downer, read on. If you would like to be cheered and bolstered, please click on one of the other links to the right of the Wonderlust blogpage. Or maybe my downer will cheer and bolster […]

no higher than your heart

By now some of you are aware of ‘The Roller-blading Incident’  – yes, the one where I thought I could roller-blade, again. I mean, who the hell can’t roller-blade? It looks so easy when co-ordinated people do it. It’s not that I can’t roller-blade at all – but I am just not at the level […]
