The Imprints of Life

Salty wet kisses sliding along the nape of my neck Fingers dancing on my skin Sticky palms meeting in the middle  Life Piercing eyes warming me from the inside out A familiar scent reminding me of home One breathing in; one breathing out Life The mid-day sun beating...

Holy Awe

It never fails to make itself known when you need it. It’s the faith you receive when your mind has no answers and your heart starts putting up its shells. It’s the voice which quietly says: It’s all ok, I have you in my plan. It’s that invisible hug you allow...

Opening to life

Open, it cried, open, Taste the salty air.   Open, it cried, open, Hear the dark night howls.   Open, it cried, open Drink in the sweet perfume.   Open, it cried, open Embrace the burning fires.   Open, it cried, open Touch the silken thread....

Swimming in the rain

“Do you want to go for a swim in the rain?” flashed on to my phone screen. I was sitting at my desk, dry and cosy, listening to the constant dripping on my tin roof. The least sensible thing to do seemed to head outside to get wet. Yet it was also the thing that sent...

Marianne Williamson

So I have a kind of girl crush’ on Marianne Williamson. Her trilogy of A Return to Love, A Woman’s Worth and The Law of Divine Compensation are up there with the most inspiring books I’ve come across. I love her style as it’s honest,...

The Road Less Travelled

M.Scott Peck was a true pioneer; daring to traverse into a territory not many were crossing in his time. The Road Less Travelled is a classic now; described by the Washington Post as simply, Magnificent. This is another book I toyed with for many years before I was...

Dan Millman

I’m fascinated by numbers! Not the financial aspect of numbers (my brother got that skill in the family) but the esoteric numerology side. So it’s no surprise that at some point, I’d stumble across Dan Millman’s The Life You Were Born to Live...
