A curious coincidence?

I have looked, several times over this last year, at possibly walking some of the Camino de Santiago.  It seems such a lovely thing to do.  Enpowering.  An adventure.  Cultural.  A physical challenge.  A mental challenge.  Spiritual.  But as yet, I have not done any more about making that possibility a reality.  Ok maybe the...

Me and the cats.

Following on from 'me and the tortoise'... So here I am, it's January, a full eight months after I quit my job.  A new year and time for some new adventures.  Comfort zone?  Eeeek..... I'm ramping it up and moving out of said place again. Now, for many of you, my mini adventures may seem... Continue Reading →

Is it just me?

Creativity

Today I have feeding my soul. I have been allowing myself to play. Some years ago as part of my final project for my art degree I obtained, from eBay, various job lots of ephemera, photographs and photographic slides. It formed the basis on my work at the time. I was looking at how technology... Continue Reading →

New habits

Day 8...... Today I have no email prompt. I have completed the 7 day challenge and through the process I have learned many things, one being that I am beginning to create the habit of writing a blog. Now, ok, I was actually writing my personal journal every day, my collection of random thoughts and... Continue Reading →
