Serenading Me

Me Me Me? I’m meant to be writing right now but I’m distracted. Yes, I have several voices that are wanting attention and even a new idea that wants to take hold but they’re all being drowned out by another voice. My own. That’s right, I’m sitting here singing. Well, a moment ago I was […]

Happy Love Day

I’m dreaming of a fine Christmas

Well, a rain free Christmas. Here in New Zealand, the probability of getting a White Christmas is very near the zero percent, unless one of the bean bags happens to explode. But, I am hoping it will be a fine Christmas. We’ve had rain quite a few years recently but this year, I’d love to set […]

A Bully free zone

It’s a truth that I place my worth on too many things that I shouldn’t, and I look at the people I admire and end up using them as another way to pull me down. It’s true I bully myself and think negatively when I think about me. Do you know how often I overheat […]
