It is way overdue, like the tomorrow that never seems to come quick enough, but perhaps that is the way of it. It needed to gather its pieces together like a snowball rolling down a mountain. With each turn, the pieces are packed tighter together so that at the end of its journey, little withstands… Continue reading It was way overdue.
In the blogging world we get to meet all types of people. Some we click with, some we don't. What a blessing it is when we do form a friendship, even if it is in the waves in the air between us. It does not diminish how much these friendships mean to us. What a… Continue reading In the flesh.
I know, I know...of late my blogging has been atrocious. This week for my local writer's group I had the task of writing a letter to a dead relative/friend. Strange subject I know...and guess who set the task ?? Yes...it was me. I am learning there are few coincidences in life. I know from writing… Continue reading It’s been a while…
After my last slightly humorous post I thought it was time to get a bit more serious. How many of you knew that 'Little Drummer Boy' was originally titled the 'Carol of the Drum' ?

I have two new students staying with me for a few weeks. From Thailand. Both girls are 14, and luckily their English is pretty reasonable. While it is a bit of work having people, especially young people you have to cook & clean for...it is nice work. Last night the girls made me their favourite… Continue reading Meet Ohm & Ploy
I don't have many memories before I was eight that did not have my Auntie Ed [short for Edna] in them. Auntie Ed was tiny. Seriously tiny. She was also a force of nature. Not someone you fooled around with. Auntie Ed had a way of looking at you that made your bones rattle when… Continue reading Saying goodbye.
https://youtu.be/75Oct1Qv8x0 My best friend took a long time to get to know. She...yes she is a she...is a rebel [in her own way]. According to Jung she fits the rebel archetype that he ascribed to. You see she sees injustice everywhere and wants to shake up the entire system! According to Jungian psychologists, this type… Continue reading My Best Friend
This morning Gilly messaged me with the news of Christine's passing. As I went to her blog to read Stuart's post I was not surprised to find the tears rolling down my cheeks.
