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…

Love & violence.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmucVmr60HQ I was...and am I huge fan of Sons of Anarchy. I  watched the first episode and was hooked right though to the end. It was a violent TV show. There is no getting away from that. With all the love stories, all the camaraderie...there it was...violence. It made me wonder. What made me keep… Continue reading Love & violence.

When all hope seems lost…

My heart is sore. I never thought I would feel so saddened by a country. I never thought I would feel so disillusioned with the people of New Zealand. I never thought I would ache with sorrow for the way New Zealand has become a country of people who worry more about their pockets than… Continue reading When all hope seems lost…

My Best Friend

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.

“We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” —Ernest Hemingway

  Writing for me developed from a love of reading. There were not enough books in the universe for me to devour. Winnie The Pooh, Daktari, A Child's Garden of Verses, Rebecca, and Wuthering Heights were all beloved favourites. They taught me so much. They taught me that there are all kinds of stories to… Continue reading “We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” —Ernest Hemingway

Some thoughts and a few cute fur babies.

Yesterday I told you I was taking part in a march against animal testing. No one from the government in power here bothered to attend any of the marches to address people's concerns. Though with this government it sadly does not surprise me. My country is going down the gurgler in many areas and many… Continue reading Some thoughts and a few cute fur babies.

Life is funny at times.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that the computer will cooperate and this post will see the light of day. I am also hoping that soon all will be sorted on the insurance front.
