I’ve been missing in action on my blog for three months. I’ve not been lost for words. I’ve had too many. Having too much to say is as painful as having nothing to say. Words and stories have been buzzing in my head along with the happenings of life; some sad, some happy, yet interestingContinue reading “Find Rest in Holy Week”

How Did I End Up Here?
Since hitting a major birthday milestone 7 weeks ago, time seems to have been flying by at the speed of light and I’ve arrived in the New Year with my feet having barely touched the ground. Already, I’m bored with the tedious reminders of aging that are constantly bombarding me – or is it thatContinue reading “How Did I End Up Here?”
Too Early For This?
You may think it’s far too early to hold a Christmas Carol Service on 4th December but think again. Have you seen how busy the high street is already in the run-up towards Christmas? And it’s not even December yet? We’ve had cards on display since the end of September, Christmas songs in the shopsContinue reading “Too Early For This?”
I attended a poetry workshop recently, alongside fellow writers, facilitated by local poet and tutor, Felix Hodcroft – hosted by Scarborough Writers’ Circle, whose members will be celebrating National Poetry Day at their October session with poems stemming from the workshop on the theme of ‘environment’. The theme immediately brings to mind topical global warmingContinue reading “Environment”
SPINNING A GANSEY
I was thinking about the way stress seems to overtake me quite easily these days. Obviously, the way I handle it now is a throw-back from my psychotic breakdown in 2020, but I wonder if it’s also connected to my being resuscitated following a heart attack in 2008; as a consequence of blood flow starvationContinue reading “SPINNING A GANSEY”
We’re coming to the end of January and what a month it’s been for me on my personal journey. So much has happened (is still happening) this month in response to my vision board for 2022 (with compilation still in progress) that it’s hard to choose a starting point to write from. Therefore, I’ll startContinue reading “HAPPY ENDINGS”
VISION FOR THE NEW YEAR
I’ve said it every year for the past 10 years (if not more) and every year, as New Year’s Eve approaches, I’m back in the cycle of clearing my clutter. I do take drastic action on it but always end up in the same place by the end of the following year. This year IContinue reading “VISION FOR THE NEW YEAR”
CELEBRATING THE LIGHT
I was watching an old episode of Poirot recently and marvelling at the conviction of David Suchet’s portrayal of a character he has made his own. I’ve often wondered if David is a Christian because of some of the things he utters as Poirot. I haven’t read the books by Dame Agatha Christie but IContinue reading “CELEBRATING THE LIGHT”
I’m amazed at how quickly I’ve become busy again after coming to a complete stop during the pandemonium of our enforced lockdowns with its fluctuating restrictions. I rather enjoyed the peace and solitude of isolation at first and find within the current process of ongoing recovery, I’ve gradually returned to doing the things I enjoyContinue reading “SLOWING DOWN”
Being in the moment and noticing the small things helps us to focus on the ‘now’ and allows peaceful rest to enter into our mind, body and soul. It is impossible to be anxious about other things when you are truly focussed on the ‘now’. This mindfulness attitude has been of significant value to meContinue reading “INSPIRING MOMENTS”
