JUST A TOUCH OF TULIPS

This post was published back in April 2014. I was going to write another blog about tulips but decided to simply revamp the old one and pop it out in the world again. We are currently immersed in what I think of as The Weird Time. The world we have known is upskittled, which on … Continued



WELEDA, THE FIELD.

I have, for the past year been a Wellbeing Advisor with Weleda. This is a relatively new initiative started by Weleda, UK. It is a great way to be involved with a super range, all of them being made from 100% natural products. As an Advisor I am self-employed and can sell as much or … Continued



RHUBARB AND GINGER CAKE.

A couple of weeks ago I received some rhubarb in our organic vegetables… Personally, I’m not a huge fan of these jewel-coloured stalks. I suspect it was the amount I consumed as a child. Up in the north east of England back in the 50s and 60s it was rare to see a vegetable plot … Continued



EARLY SUMMER…

Summer has apparently arrived! However, in my part of the world there is not a whole heap of evidence that this is true! Today is cool, breezy with the odd but very effective downpour. It’s therefore a brilliant day to write my blogpost for OM Yoga magazine which is way behind schedule. Those of you … Continued

SOME RANDOM SCENES TO CHEER THE SOUL PERHAPS…

I have been unwell for the past days and am only just feeling the energy within me move in a more positive way. I do not get ill often but when I do my body really does it well! I simply collapsed and took to my bed..for days it seems now as I gaze back. … Continued



REEBOK SPARTAN RACE

I have been asked by Dan Krueger of Reebok SPARTAN RACE to write something about the various events taking place around the UK this year, so here goes. First and foremost, I am not participating! Once upon a time I did run and loved it but my running was on the flat, straight forward and … Continued



‘STALKING YOUR FEAR’ AND OTHER THINGS….

The photograph above was taken in a quiet corner of a beautiful garden in Italy. The surroundings were peaceful, gentle and inviting and then there was this chap! He was really rather spectacular and yet there was a sense of him inhabiting a dark space deep within me. He seemed, to me at least, the … Continued



WORDS OF WISDOM.

A few words on this beautiful spring morning. These words are taken from A Year of Living Your Yoga by Juudith Hanson Lasater… ‘Responding appropriately is an art. Do you overdo things and underdog others? For today, see if you can apply just enough effort to each task. This requires you to stay present.’ So … Continued
