Everything has changed…again

It is two years today, 16th December, since I posted the first blog. Two years of intense, almost unbelievable change. Not just personally, but also globally. When I set this blog up in December 2019, I had no idea that the world and life… Continue Reading “Everything has changed…again”

A call to love

This is the face of innocence. The face of bliss. A mind deeply connected with spirit and as yet, unprogrammed and undisturbed. This is the face of my grand-daughter, Wren. Once we were all like this. We came in, still deeply connected to spirit,… Continue Reading “A call to love”

everything has changed…

Everything has changed. Two weeks ago I went into the local palliative care unit for symptom and pain management. This visit had been mutually agreed on the week before when I had seen my palliative care specialist. I was taking a slow release morphine… Continue Reading “everything has changed…”

the Art of Surrender

Know Yourself

I guess you could say that at the age of forty, when life as I knew it feel apart, I experienced a deep existential crisis. Possibly one of the greatest gifts Life could have sent me at the time. It didn’t feel that way… Continue Reading “Know Yourself”

Love yourself

I spent 4 days in hospital recently as a result of the physical symptoms I was experiencing (my first nights in hospital in 13 years of living with cancer – not bad going!). A CT scan (it was 16 months since my last), showed… Continue Reading “Love yourself”
