Wandering Thoughts

Note-written Friday 23rd September, have since left Liverpool! Every year it seems that the season changes, the children go back to school and I start to become very busy. I don't just become busy, but I also start to get the need to travel and wander. I'm writing this from a hotel room in the... Continue Reading →

Wellbeing and Being Well

Wellbeing and self care have felt like buzzwords in many ways of recent times. I have no doubt that many companies and brands have capitalised on this to sell products, like with any recognised trend or need within the population. However, I truly believe there is more to this than meditation apps and clay mud... Continue Reading →

And Then I Woke Up

In recent times, my dreams have been intense. I don’t always remember them, but I often wake up with a feeling like I’ve already lived an active day and confused about starting another. The confusion is born from a strange misalignment of whatever was happening in my dream against what I am facing in the... Continue Reading →

Spring Check In

Best laid plans are always easily ruined aren’t they, at least that what the last two years has felt like. It used to be that something certain would happen, but now it feels like anything can change and especially last minute. In relation to that, I can’t remember how many times I’ve promised, or not...

The Pressure

Note: this was written in the last few weeks and out together through various conversations with friends about this mutual but distinctly different feeling we all have. I have written from my own experience mainly and, I’m sad to say, a lot of this now feels insignificant compared to what has happened in the world... Continue Reading →

Sonder

Sonder is a word for our own realisation that everyone around is is living their own lives. Not just that, but that they have lives as complex as the one we live and that we have absolutely no awareness of its complexity only that it must exist. Sometimes, on the bus home from work, I...

Tell Me Your Pronouns

This has been one of the harder blog posts to write, and therefore a big reason for my recent lack of posts which many of you have noticed. I’m finding it hard for several things that I am struggling to express or get my head around, but also I feel the absolute need to do... Continue Reading →

New Year Greetings

Just a short one from me today while I still try to recover from having COVID-19 for at least the second, if not a third time. I suspect it is three but I won’t be answering any questions regarding this. Let me just say that yes I’ve had all my vaccines, yes I’ve suffered with... Continue Reading →

What’s In A Name?

I had an interesting encounter with a funeral director recently which inspired this blog post. I have the absolute privilege of working in one of the most diverse and multicultural areas of the country. We have communities based in East London from all over the world with an amazing array of different cultural and religious... Continue Reading →

It’s All Stuck Together

I do expect that to be read in your head to the tune of 'We all stand together' by Paul McCartney in 1987. If you don't know what that is, please Google it and enjoy. However if, while you are searching, you see a link for ‘The Oriental Nightfish’ I would suggest avoid that one.... Continue Reading →
