Finding Nemo



Sometimes it takes a shock

To make you sit up and take notice



Sometimes the realisation that what you were

What you said and what you did

Was the muted version of you

The version for others



Now I am me

Unrestrained and unrestricted



What went before wasn't all wrong

But this is me

Finding me 

And loving me even more

For my honesty





What you expect of me won't happen

Unless I tell you to expect it






Sod Nemo ... I found me  

🖤

I go because ...



Sometimes it's not adventure I need

Sometimes it is the exact opposite

Sometimes a soul needs calm

My soul needs calm



Peace

To be at one with itself

Now I know this




The feet walk

The wheels go round

Distance

And time



A gift I give myself

A Wild Woman


It is

It really is



But then there's always Paris

For adventure



Or a little bit of van life

To calm a weary soul


💜

Go normal



It doesn't happen often

But when it does

Don't miss it



It will be a while

Until it happens again

A Good Cup of Coffee


I'm a simple girl

It only has to be a mug of Nescafe

A well read, favourite book

And maybe a bar of dark, dark chocolate

She discovered she was fierce



I knew my time would come one day

My time begins now




Letting go is hard

Holding on is harder

A Jive and a Salad



People think they know me

They don't

Hell sometimes even I don't know me

So how can they




Better dancing than cooking on a hot day


I'm fed up with thinking of food

Of cooking

Of feeding everyone


Far more fun to ramp up the radio 

And jig around the kitchen

Than heat up a pan


So perhaps a jive

Followed by a salad

Being grateful


If there is one thing I am

It is grateful


Grateful

For all that I am

And all that I have



I have been hard up

Owned little

Owed lots

And yet I was still grateful

For my family

For my health

For what I did have

Gratitude is s good feeling





I am also grateful

That I speak my own mind

Own my own words

And 

Change myself for no one


💛

Cursing



I lurch from too few to too many

You never know which day you've got me on

Until it's too late

Windowsill Still Life



A windowsill still life to calm the soul


Parsley

Spring Onions

Basil  

Mixed herbs

Compost bin

Random cockerel

Rich People





It took me a while learn this

Many years ago with a different mindset

Armed with little rectangles of plastic

I thought I could buy a better image

A bettter lifestyle

A better me

No

It doesn't work





Then life changed

Then I changed

I'm not rich

Except in experience

And all that mattters

But neither am I poor

In any way


💛

A window ...


Sometimes a blog is a window on a soul

Sometimes it's just musings written from the head

Sometimes it's the innermost you

Or the story of your journey

And sometimes it's all four

And more




💚

This is me ...





This is me

This will always be me

Sometimes it is easy

Sometimes downright difficult 

Sometimes bordering on dangerous

But always me



Best to keep it simple then


💜

I like ...



I also like books

And Pugs

And silly silly laughter

Coffee

Sparkling Water

And the hand of the one I love

In mine


But



It is for the best


💛

I woke up one day ...



An now the adventures roll in thick and fast

There is no stopping me




Breathe in the sea air

Sit on the grass and watch the world bustle by

And then sit on your step at night

And marvel at the twinkling stars in a velvet black sky


💚

I'm mostly peace ...



I know what I am

And what I am not

Now



And this could have been me yesterday

Vest

Cut offs

And a boot full of plants





And this is also me

Most of the time


💗

A Wise Woman



Sometimes you trot along through life

Living the life others expect of you

It can be okay for a while

But there comes a time when all you can say

Is fuck that



I only have one me

She is mine

And in this wonderful life 

That we only get one shot at

It would be wrong not to embrace the real me




🖤

Be Brave



Be brave

In the big things

Or the little things

But just be Brave

Slow Down



I used to work until I ached

Until I could do no more

Now I don't



I stop

I take time to smell the roses

Well in my case it is the spinach

The carrots 

And the Marigolds




💙
