We face change from the minute we are birthed into this world. At first we aren’t aware of what or how change affects us but by the time we … Continue reading Change is All Around Us
An Explanation: to Revise and Update my Blog.
Now that I close one chapter (living in South Africa) and open the next (living in Scotland) I decided to update my About Page to being a bit more personal and up to date with who I am. I will also be taking some older posts down as they are part of unfinished series that no longer reflects who I am...
How am I doing?
I hope you are well. You might be wondering how I am doing, so I will tell you. I am so over this air-boot thing that I have to wear for my ankle! I can't wait for next Monday. Counting the days. Not that I won't still wear it but that is when I start … Continue reading How am I doing?
A Longing to Answer the Call within Us
This is a little metaphoric story of a longing for meaning or purpose. I wrote it for a group of writing friends last week. I chose a painting of Vincent van Gogh as my prompt; he has been one of my favorite artists since a young girl. We had several copies of his paintings in … Continue reading A Longing to Answer the Call within Us
I Love Life.
I have written about growing older recently, here at My Aging Autumn Years , but that doesn't mean that we feel old or feel sad about getting older.

I had not, originally imagined that others would read my blog posts. At that point in time I … Continue reading +500 Followers
4 Year Anniversary Achievement
I want to take the time to honour the process of blogging, both for myself personally, and for my fellow bloggers who have been part of my journey. What started out, at first, I thought as a private affair with writing and myself became a very public affair with readers over the four years from … Continue reading 4 Year Anniversary Achievement
I feel out of sorts today. Not with my life or my creativity but with blogging. I think I am having a moment of questioning “what is blogging all about”? you have this too? don't you?

To stay stuck or launch.
Flags by W.C. Armstrong and Morag Armstrong (Noffke) 1968 The days before pre-writing. I remember wanting to write before I had learned how. This didn't stop me; that's the black squiggles you can see. "Can you read what I wrote?"
