‘Nothing captures the light like the dark’ The moon has been an endless topic of conversation, wonder and wisdom since the beginning of time. Is there anything as magical as the golden glow of moonlight in a dark night sky? Like creativity, it is full of contradictions. Forever fluctuating in shape and energy, from slithery...
When I resorted to Twitter last Thursday afternoon to ask “has anyone seen my mojo?” I discovered (with relief) I’m far from alone. Keeping mojo’s perky versus the montage of life’s demands seems to trip many writer’s up as we walk the creative path. We need to chat about the elusive magic that keeps our...
‘Friendship is the sweetest flower’ “Will you be my friend?” I am claiming that as life’s greatest question. Who remembers plucking up the courage to ask it at school? I do, I bagged myself Nina. My first bestie. We whittered away summers playing kirby, climbing tree’s, buying sweets and devouring her Mums spag bol. The...
“You do not need to be busy all the time, part of creating is to observe with a still mind” Did anyone notice when being busy became so glamorous? The runway of modern life has us all walking the catwalk, right? I see the trend play out, daily. Take this morning’s coffee run.  Girl in front...

‘The beauty of a rainbow, is the refusal to be one colour’ Have you ever had a rainbow appear, just when you need something to brighten your day? Perhaps one of those mornings it’s showering with life’s unpleasantries. Stumped your toe? Exhausting to do list? Boss being an ass hole? Suddenly, you look up at...
“We all have dreams that exist outside ourselves, we see them in the stars at night, they inspire us to keep reaching” What is that existence beyond ourselves? What is it about the stars and moon, reading our horoscopes or googling mercury retrograde, that even just for a moment, pulls us away from the mundane? ...
Let me be real here, sometimes the life of a writer is enough to leave you belting out Whitney in your living room. (Yes I have done this) And it makes sense. You see writers spend a lot of time in their heads. That space can easily switch between the weapon and the sword. Depending...
‘Just like the moon at times we shine bright, and at times we hide in the dark’ I have been riding the rollercoaster of creativity for many years now, I could have written this back when I first started. You see back then; I still embraced my woo-woo. I bounced through my day on it....
Dear 2021,  How are you doing? We are delighted to be meeting you soon. Your predecessor has been somewhat diabolical for even the most relentless of optimists. The fact that we don’t even need to mention the world’s intruder’s name speaks volumes of their impact. For every moment of hope has been a moment of...
