The race that stops a nation didn’t stop me. Not in my tracks and not even long enough to watch it at work (actually there was no-one around as my boss was on leave and my other colleague out of the office). With a new moon rising, Halloween had passed in a shocking excess of cheap and nasty ghoul and … Read More

That floating feeling

We live in a world of so much sensory stimulation, it’s no wonder we all feel agitated and often overwhelmed. Wouldn’t it be nice to float in silence, stillness and darkness for a while.  There’s a Minecraft video series my son is far too fond of and the man’s voice grates on me like nails scratching a chalkboard (for those … Read More

Teenager in da house

We have a 13-year-old (eek). The birthday girl doesn’t look any different from the child she’s been, only now she’s a teenager stuck in that awkward adolescent stage that I’d like to think balances childlike innocence with adult maturity, but let’s face it, is a ‘no man’s land’. Or ‘no parent’s land’ at least. (And no-man’s land either until she’s … Read More

Mother Nature’s mercy

It’s enclosing. Cocooning. Shrouded in mist, the dark landscape seems to envelop everything under a thick, dank blanket. It feels like coming home. The rain lashes and thrashes through the landscape. Sheets slash through trees, torrents tear at leaves. It’s aggressive, violent even. There’s something biblical in this fierce weather – do we need such a heavy reminder of our … Read More

Zen and the Art of French Braiding

french braid

I’ve always wanted to use an eclectic, if slightly pompous sounding title for a blog post and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is a classic best-selling book. I’ve officially become a Dance Mum, or a hairdresser, or probably just a shadow of both, but as we head into dance eisteddfod season this year I seem to have grown … Read More

If you’re savouring a return to school term, then chances are you’re enjoying your ears being spared that most moronic of holiday ear-worms: “I’m bored”! “Would you rather be back at school?” Scowl! Perhaps it’s you instead lamenting the end of that slower, sweeter school holiday pace, or rather lack of speed – actual time to get off the hamster … Read More

You know that feeling – you’re lying back in a hammock, cool breeze caressing your face, great new book waiting to be read, the waves gently lapping the beautiful sandy beach – perhaps your even on some tropical isle and a waiter is about to bring you something to drink that’s cool and exotic and tastes oh so good. And … Read More

Endings and beginning again

And-they-lived-hanging

What is it about us humans that can make us so sad about endings and so fearful of beginnings? And why can’t we just be happy (or at least circumspect/hopeful) about both ending something old and starting something new? This week we celebrated (hint happiness – then why do I feel so sad?) our Miss Yin finishing primary school. There … Read More

Life happens FOR you

life

There are two main ways of looking at life, don’t you reckon. Life happens You make life happen That’s very yin-yang – the first approach being about accepting what the universe dishes up (brussel sprouts anyone?), the second about taking action to dish up your own dinner (mmm, pizza). But there are variations on the main themes, and as always, … Read More

Are you reacting or responding?

There’s a big difference don’t you think – between reacting and responding?! (reacting has an exclamation mark after it for starters)! I’m trying to respond rather than react. From a yin-yang perspective there’s room for yin reflection in deciding to respond. There’s time to think and it’s implicit that a response is based more on your own thoughts (taking into … Read More

Tips for travelling the soul journey

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

(This post is my entry into the Virgin Australia’s Voyagers Competition as part of the Problogger event) It’s funny how we travel – to far-flung places, to meet total strangers, to eat exotic foods, to lose luggage (not on Virgin Australia!) – all so we can find ourselves. It’s so much harder to find yourself when you’re lazing on your lounge … Read More

Gratitude and Grace

The toilet roll needs changing, again. And again, and again, and again, and again, and again. Every. Single. Time.     The clothes are lying on the bathroom floor, again. And again, and again, and again, and again. Every. Single. Time.     The shoes are left where I’ll trip over them, again. And again, and again, and again, and … Read More
