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 […]

I died a thousand times tonight

 Embrace your dark side This is what I read on FB the other day. Embrace my dark side? WTF?! It certainly sounds pretty kinky I must admit – but what if my dark side has less to do with a deep voice and a black cape and more to do with getting mad at a […]

rolling with the good times

Oh man, right now I am feeling so grateful to have this blog. Isn’t the internet grand? Such a time-waster but also such an enabler. I am feeling so grateful to all of you who responded to my last post about announcing I am a writer and grateful to anyone, in fact, who has ever […]

romancing the soul in saint tropez

There is more juice to be got out of my day in Saint Tropez. Feeling out of the flow is confusing. I can’t make decisions. I have so much to say but I don’t know where to start. Things feel difficult. I numb out. I waste time in front of the mirror. I try to […]

so sexy it hurts

It was only a matter of time before I got to writing about cats. I hear you roll your eyes. Don’t worry – I’m not going to wax on about why I love cats so much. Just know that I do. And I know I’m not alone. I just discovered an Instagram page from a […]

The First Time

The First time I went to France I was eighteen and with my parents. We got dropped off by a tour bus and had three days staying on the outskirts of Paris. I remember it was Bastille Day and a man had brought a ladder to climb up and see the parade. We drank red […]

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 […]

Breathing : a collection of musings on Inspiration

The Inhale Inspiration is such a lovely word but inspiration itself is overrated. You don’t have to be inspired, you just have to do. Right now I’m not feeling inspired at all and I don’t know if I should be writing about inspiration. This is an experiment. Will I get inspired through the writing? Is […]

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 […]

Life of Mi (ode to desk)

New York was great and all but I was happy to come back to my desk. My desk is my sanctuary, my shrine, my rubber raft on the sea of life. I need it to navigate through the rough waters and also to enjoy the tranquillity of the calm. I love my pretty little boat, […]
