Jump Ship

There is no shame

In jumping ship

In slowing down the merry go round of life

While you hop off for a while 

To take some time to smell the roses

Read the book

Curl up in a cosy bed

And close out the world

No shame in not answering the questions

Solving the problems

Or being there for everyone elses

Real or imaginary dramas

Sometimes you need to be somewhere else

In your special happy place

Or inside your own head

Simply doing your best

For yourself

Tired Souls

I need nature

I need magic

I need adventure

I need truth

I need stillness

These are the things that keep me grounded

Give me purpose

Set my soul at rest


I do actually also need more sleep

... as well as the yoga

Too Much

It takes time to find your people

But they are out there

And well worth the search

When you find them

You will be glad you took the time to look

Always take time to enjoy the journey

What you set out to do in life

Creates fascinating paths

Not everyone will start or even stay on your path

But it is yours to follow 

For as long as you want to follow it

They will have their own

And sometimes I have found the journey 

Can be more fun than the destination

Mud Pies?

I was never a girly girl

Jeans and sneakers have been my life



Mud pies

And imagination

Filled my childhood with wonder

As an adult

Things didn't change that much

Moving on and starting afresh 

Were and are my adventures

My van is my oh so grown up den

The mud pies?

Well these days they are more chocolatey than mud

And yes ... I still have the wonder


I accidentally punctuated

Find Your People

I think both my sons 

Have finally found their 'people'

They've found the one

That is their other half

The Yin to their Yang

The one who will have their back

And expect nothing more than the same from them

It's taken a while

But boy oh boy

Was it worth waiting for

My Busy


I pull back from being there for everyone else

And take time

To be there for myself

It keeps me busy

I like my busy

None of Your Business

I should remember that

Then every comment made

Wouldn't be like a knife turning in a wound

Too sensitive by half

That's me
