Kindness

Kindness is such a tiny thing, that is very easy for it to get overlooked in the every day bustle of life, and the more important things.

Simplicity by the bag load

I am always striving for simplicity, but I find that I can often get so caught up in finding the perfect simple solution that I over complicate my life. Does that make sense? Is that something you do? I have to use a rucksack, because otherwise I quite quickly get shoulder issues. I am ok […]

Blending into the background

I was recently privileged to be on a day retreat, with the wonderful Pen Wilcock (I highly recommend her books, she is a very wise woman). We were talking about journeys, our own and the concept of coming home. At the end of the day, after some period of work by ourselves, reflecting on our paths […]
