On Tuesday it will be twenty eight years since this soul o’ mine first found itself earth side. And, I don’t know if this is a bias opinion, but I think I’ve packed in a fair bit of life and living over those 28 years and in doing so have uncovered treasures and lessons galore. […]

I’ve become a little obsessed with the concept of balance; of uncovering the middle ground within the tug of war of our energies. Trying to find my place in the middle of push and pull; in the middle of directive and lost; in the middle of being and doing; in the middle of hard and soft; […]

I mentioned in a previous post, that I have a little Voldemort in me. Nothing to be scared about, I’m not planning Wizarding World domination, but over the past few years I too left bits and pieces of my soul all around our amazing little planet. I’ve been fortunate enough to have explored three continents over […]

Busting out the Monday morning gratitude. Because another week has arrived, ripe with possibility and potential, and us in sexy little captain’s hats ready to steer this ship wherever we please.

Green-Taxidermy

Accountability-art

You know those toys that have the pulley string at the back and have a handful of words//phrases that play, on repeat, from their automated little voice chips?
