Thought-provoking.  It makes you think, dunnit?

An Exceptional Event – The 2017 Jersey Festival of Words

I hope the organisers of the 2017 Jersey Festival of Words allowed themselves a large gin and tonic last night after this amazing 5-day festival drew to a close; they certainly had cause to celebrate. I said in my blog of 27th September 2017 that getting on and off […]


Happy Wednesday.  I’m getting excited about going on my annual holiday next week and took an hour or so today to reflect on what a huge impact travelling has had on my life and this short vid is the outcome.  I have no regrets about spending my hard […]

2017 Women and War Festival 4th-30th July 2017 – Streatham Hill Theatre, London

In light of recent events, women around the world should reach out to each other and find an inner strength in that solidarity. One day that strength will guide us to finding a peaceful solution to the threat the world currently faces … through education.

Where better to find like-minded women than to support the month-long multi-disciplinary 2017 Women and War Festival which examines the impact of war on women. Now in its second year the Women and War: EXODUS will focus on displacement and refugeeism and will celebrate the lives of exceptional women throughout the years through theatre, music, dance, art, film, performance, poetry, craft, cuisine and comedy.

Change your World – From Susie Lindau’s Wild Ride – 4th December 2015

We live in violent times. When we turn on the news and are inundated with horrific events, it feels like a punch in the gut. We feel ordinary, helpless, and without hope. Some become angry while others spiral downward in various levels of depression. One person can’t change […]

Wake up Wednesday

I am always excited for Wednesdays.   QiGong first thing in the morning sets me up for a high energy day.  Just one hour of mental stillness can trigger a week’s worth of energy. For that 60 minutes, my mind is in a clear, pure place.  With my head in the sky and my […]

No need for words …

The photo says it all …


Quote of the Day: Oprah Winfrey

I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working […]

Is Gender Equality in the Workplace tottering backwards?

I often feel that the male of the species has a tendency to forget just how important a woman’s role is in this world and not only in the workplace. If it wasn’t for us, the female of the species … they wouldn’t be here at all.

Political Hiatus:  where do we go from here?

In these unstable times, our shrinking and volatile world needs us all to pull together and unite more than ever before. I hardly had time to mourn the implications of Brexit, when I became consumed with the US Presidential Election. I try never to publicly air my political views, particularly […]

Jane Elliott on Racism

What a lady … anybody who can destroy racism in one minute gets my vote. Jane Elliott (born May 27, 1933) is an American former third-grade schoolteacher, anti-racism activist, and educator, as well as a feminist and LGBT activist.  Wiki.

Kicking Stress

Stress kicks you in the teeth and really gets you down, so the fight against stress is never going to be easy.

A Sign of the Times

Well it is never good news these days is it?  And the knock-on effect is that I am finding it extremely hard to write anything remotely amusing.   Every time I log on to Social Media or sit down to watch the news on TV, more people have […]


At a time when the world should all be pulling together to fight the evil that threatens to destroy it he British public have voted to alienate themselves from the rest of Europe.

Jane Goodall

Peace is what we all should be striving for

I always say that I try and steer clear of three topics.  Politics, Religion and Sex, but I saw this video today and thought that we should all try to learn from it. At a time when religious tensions are running high and the world is torn, please find it in your heart to […]
