Be in the present not the past.
Today is what matters.
the thoughts, encounters and dreams.
The next minute is precious,never to be repeated

Smells, sounds, breathing, tastes – the sun on
my face, the cold snap on my ears.
Sometimes that is all I need.
Breathe, look, touch and smell.


I’m continuing to explore my word for 2015

Friday Thoughts

Blog, Writing

 “It was that sort of sleep in which you wake every hour and think to yourself that you have not been sleeping at all; you can remember dreams that are like reflections, daytime thinking slightly warped.”
― Kim Stanley RobinsonIcehenge

Early morning again. Insomnia has it’s advantages. Writing becomes less of a task and more of a necessity. As this year begins I need more balance in my life. Balance in exercise, Balance in my diet, Balance in my relationships with others and Balance in my priorities.

No more sitting on the fence, thinking about the ‘maybe’s’ and ‘what if’s ‘- this is now. As I sit here in the silence, no cars, no voices, just the creaks of the floorboards as if the house is breathing with me, in, out, in, out. The fridge comes to life groaning as if it’s complaining – “Too much food in here, clear it out, use it”.

To be continued…..

Some Thoughts at the End of the Year


As the year draws to a close I’m gathering some ideas ready for 2015. Once again I am thinking of a word that will help and guide me through my 60th year.  As usual I find this so difficult mainly because I need more than one !!



I have  shortlist it’s longer than usual . I’m reading Mindfulness by Prof. Mark Williams and I want to include this into my choice of word.

Balance —–Mental or emotional stability:the way to some kind of peace and personal balance

Healing —– The process of making or becoming sound or healthy again:the gift of healing

Seek ———- Attempt or desire to obtain or achieve (something)

Deliberate —- Careful and unhurried:

Commit ——– Pledge or bind (a person or an organization) to a certain course or policy:

Have you thought of a word ?
