When Dreams Collapse 

This post is the post that I never thought I would be writing.  After three and a half years of dreaming of going back to the land, of writing about it and sharing it, my worst case scenario has come true. The dream has collapsed.  Hence my silence over the last three months.  Not really knowing the best way to...

What Would You Do If You Only Had Six Months Left To Live?

  It may be a corny question. The kind that English teachers like myself use to stimulate discussion or the kind of question people pose at some artificial speed dating event.

authenticity and self-empowerment

Authenticity, Self-Empowerment and Co-Creating a More Beautiful World.

Expecting the Unexpected and Embracing Fear

What would you do with your life if you had no fear?   If fear wasn’t there, whispering in your ear and telling you that you can’t, that it’s impossible, that you are kidding yourself…what would you do?
