I have been a person easily moved to tears all my life. Many situations move me in such a way, but especially those situations where I feel vulnerable. It is the common belief that such tears are a sign of weakness that has lead many people to belittle me and also, to under-estimate me. For […]Read More Tears
As a child and as a young adult you learn to make your way in the world. You learn to see and to be seen. You learn how to make your presence felt. You learn how to argue and, very importantly, you learn how to forgive. As I grew up I did not learn these […]Read More Growing-up
It fascinates me, watching the ripples that move through humanity. How the action of one person or one small event can set off a cascade of responses reaching wider and wider. The first time I noticed this effect was when my first husband died. I’d nursed him through his illness and some family members had […]Read More Ripples
Some days are hard. Christmas is one of those days for me. It is a day filled with loss and aloneness. This year was especially hard and I am disappointed in myself. I don’t “do” Christmas and this year Spirit has guided me into understanding more about why this is. In fact, over the last […]Read More Home Alone
Gosh it’s been a while since I last wrote a blog article. So much stuff has happened and despite heaps of good intentions, not a lot of writing has made it to this blog!

This is a tough topic. It shouldn’t be because it’s something we will all achieve eventually. It’s the last thing that most of us will do in this lifetime although some do it a couple of times, usually thanks to modern medicine. I’m talking about death and grief. If this is a sensitive subject at […]Read More A Tricky Topic
