Lose Yourself To Dance

I've always wanted to be a writer. I've always wanted to be able to get to the top of a set of stairs without being out of breath. Both of these, on particular days, can end up as problematic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzXpNAEb8gU Athletic ability, in the last six months, has begun to show significant improvement. Having exchanged … Continue reading Lose Yourself To Dance

And I Love Her

This is the last of four posts I scheduled for 'Interests' in the mistaken belief there's enough interesting stuff in my life to write about at length. The truth is, of course, existence is incredibly mundane most of the time. I eat, sleep, exercise, write, play mum to two young adults who increasingly don't require … Continue reading And I Love Her

Nobody Does it Better

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOlRiSrpZrg We are living in a Procedural World and I am a Procedural Girl... I absolutely ADORE a good TV Detective show. Ironically, I've not seen a Sherlock episode (but with Christmas coming that will hopefully be amended) but have managed a fair number of CSI's in my time [all flavours.] Right now I'm using … Continue reading Nobody Does it Better

https://www.instagram.com/p/BrR4RO7HbNE/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link I've recently replaced my ancient Fruit Phone.

Photography is a love affair that began in my teens and shows no sign of diminishing. My … Continue reading The Big Sky

Scary Monsters and Super Creeps

I can't speak for any other writer as to how their creative minds operate, but mine is VERY particular when it comes to inspiration. As should be abundantly apparent by all these #Blogmas posts, music is an indivisible part of existence. How that manifests has altered significantly in my 50 plus years on the planet, … Continue reading Scary Monsters and Super Creeps

Look Out Any Window

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJhIIb8E8O8 Lots of things matter to me. Some are fairly frivolous (see Bond fan fiction) but others come from a lifetime of noticing stuff other people seem to overlook. Environmentalism has been in my life since my teens, donating to Friends of the Earth for over thirty years. We don't send gifts to close family … Continue reading Look Out Any Window

Dancing in the Dark

This has been surprisingly hard to write, which is strange. I've spoken a lot about the issues that exist, there are various blogs you can easily locate on the site which detail history, such as it is. However, something important has happened in the last couple of months. My husband was sorting through pictures of … Continue reading Dancing in the Dark
