How is your now?

Now that we are required to stay home, how are you feeling? How are you experiencing this global phenomenon? Remember when you couldn’t wait to get home from work? Are you now feeling “stuck at home”? Is it a little like when you felt “stuck at work” then? What makes you experience joy or suffering?… Continue reading How is your now?

Living life, Reflection, The Self

Simply let go

The threat of COVID-19 and the recent fires and floods have reinforced upon me that life is simple, or it ought to be.  Our daily fears of losing material things, reputation, status, and popularity pale into insignificance, compared to these life threatening events. As news of the impact of the virus continues to headline the… Continue reading Simply let go

What’s your story?

Most Christians I have met are helpful and friendly. Few are malicious or vicious. Many are non-judgmental. Yet many have also adopted a posture of being “the chosen ones”, the ones who know best - of what is godly, what is deemed acceptable, what is right, and their judgments of those who don’t ascribe to… Continue reading What’s your story?

Living conscious – Are you there yet?

Conscious being, some of us are and at some of the time. When a certain insight hits us, those ‘a-ha’ moments (no, I don’t mean the Norwegian pop group), when our attention is focused on another for his or her sake, when we are attuned to our impact on the world around us. Been here?… Continue reading Living conscious – Are you there yet?

In creativity…love.

For as long as I have known her, she has been imaginative, she has creative flair and a way of about her which exudes confidence, a knowing beyond her age, and a discerning nature. This is her love - creating a handmade thank-you flower. This is her joy - creating a painting to adorn her… Continue reading In creativity…love.


To my darling . . .

Heart-felt sentiments… dare you to read and not have a tear or two… 🙂 LOVE IS. Enjoy!
