Rocks and Hard Places

“Sounds like you’re between a rock and a hard place.” These words ran through my head this morning as I walked along the road by my house. It’s summer time, and as I walk lizards baking in the sun scurry away into the bushes. Wild flowers are in full bloom and I marvel at all […]

What Do You Do? An Ethnographic Perspective

“What do you do?” It’s usually the first question we ask after we meet someone, yet this was the question I dreaded answering the most. It was 2014 and my partner and I had just moved to the other side of the world. For the first time in my life, I didn’t have a job, […]

Creativity Isn’t Just Something We Do…

As an adult how much of what you learnt at school do you use in your daily life? For me, I find myself thinking about the things I learned in art class. It taught me about the different ways in which we can see the world and most of all it taught me about life. […]

The “Live Fast or Not At All” Mentality

      I am not proud to admit this, but for me the “stay at home” movement in response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic was met with some initial resistance. My mother and my mother’s mother have always been the type of strong women who never got sick and when they did, the world […]

Unseen

I was reading a story, (in: Chicken Soup for the Soul), the other day about a speaker who went to present at a school for the visually impaired. After his presentation one of the shyer students approached him and the two conversed further. But then the speaker could tell that they boy was working himself […]

Black, White & Grey

As a child, the world is so black and white. I remember standing with mum in her friend’s backyard when I was somewhere between the age of 5 and 7. Mum and her friend were enjoying a conversation and as the couple had no other children at the time that I could play with, I […]

Restoring Faith + Moving on To Passionate Living

  Late last year I found myself feeling a little heartbroken. I didn’t feel heard. I felt disappointed. The more I learned about people it seemed, the harder I had to look to find a genuine person. But if there is one thing I never want to do, it would be to lose faith in […]

A Truly Merry Christmas

  The Christmas period can be a tricky one to navigate. For many of us, it’s the busiest time of the year. We start out with good intentions and after all Christmas is about giving, but how many of you have caught yourself feeling bitter and worn out leading up to Christmas (or perhaps regretful […]

The Other Side of Shame

  I believe everything has good in it. Even the wound of shame.   I was afflicted with it. The symptoms; I thought I didn’t matter. I thought I wasn’t heard. I learnt I shouldn’t feel. I knew not to express. I gave away trying to protect myself. I thought I was undeserving.   Shame […]

The Golden Rule

  The Golden Rule; “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is a great one. You might have heard it before, (possibly from the bible). For many of us it was how we learned to be considerate as children and let’s face it, it’s a pretty simple concept to wrap our […]
