I hope your February was merry. And love filled 😏. And that your March has started off well. Its Women's month so I hope you are on the look out for injustices against women (which are many) and righting those wrongs. I intend to show up this March, add my voice to some of the … Continue reading In the face of doubt
I came across the poem below from 2019 (unbelievable as it may sound that's all of three years ago). So some context - outside a shared institution, I realised a shift in some friendships. And I started to think about what a friend is, how far you draw in friends, what you say and what … Continue reading We were strangers
The promise of January was a lifting of all the lockdown restrictions and I probably looked so much to it, I forgot to think of what that might feel like. Like how I get a little antsy when people get so close without their masks... It's hard to believe that less than three years ago … Continue reading Easing back into some ‘sort of normal’
First Writer’s Wednesday of the year. (And hopefully it will persist with some bi-weekly consistency.) I had the pleasure of listening to some of Elizabeth Gilbert's interviews on writing, and I also read her book 'Big Magic'. I liked her wit, especially in the interviews and perspective on what writing was to her. One thing … Continue reading The best writing advice…
Or not if that puts unnecessary pressure on your plans. Somethings will work out, somethings will not - like it happens every year. The ebb and rise of life as it is. But our focus on the new year is Growth And Perspective. At least mine is. That is my theme for the year. I … Continue reading 2022 with some buzz…
Do not introduce anyone to a routine you will not be able to maintain! Hey, this is a repost from last year. Sometime last week, I was asked for what I want to be known for and consistency was one of those things on my list. I hope this helps get your thoughts out on … Continue reading The pressures of consistency!
The thing with writing, or what I have been led to believe is that whatever time works, works. You are not set to a wound up to go off when the clock strikes. But there should be some writing - because the only way to get better at something (you can say it with me) … Continue reading How to jealously guard your writing time.
Hello there, I hope your December is picking up steam wonderfully. I came across this post and thought I would share this too. I really really like what was written here. Especially as we take inventory of the year. What worked and what failed. And what we imagine the next year should look like. I … Continue reading Untitled🤷 (Repost)
MIDDLE NAME - INSECURE. Hey there, Not there...Here. Nope, further down in the back. Further...ffffuuurrttthher. Yep, that's me in the corner with my head bent in seeming concentration while my thoughts highlight every point where I’ve gone wrong in the past five minutes. I’m not vocal enough, I’m not funny enough, I'm not friendly enough, … Continue reading These Scattered Thoughts.
Does it feel like the months are creeping up on you this year? Like time is playing hide and seek with you but you have no idea that you should be playing? No?! Guess it's just me then. But I like how October has rolled in for me. Its a little busier than I have … Continue reading Hello October!
