Big news people – I’ve been published in the new Louise Hay book, Modern-Day Miracles: Miraculous Moments and Extraordinary Stories from People All Over the World Whose Lives Have Been Touched by Louise L. Hay. This very exciting news came about a month ago, but there’s been a lot going on in my life (will […]


In 2009 I got old. And it wasn’t because I turned 38. For the first time in my life I felt old. Powerless to create the life I wanted. Fearful for the future. All too conscious of human suffering. I wondered if my best years were behind me. I questioned my faith in “everything happens […]

I know I’ve been absent a lot this year, but despite what it looks like, I haven’t gone away. I’m still here! I have, however, had a very challenging year and my blogging has suffered accordingly. Some people find it helps to blog about their problems, but I am not one of them. When life […]


I’ve been thinking the past week I really should get back into my blog. I realize it’s been awhile now and I would like to thank all of you who have written to tell me how much I am missed. It’s good to know I might fill some kind of space – no matter how […]


“Sometimes the most urgent thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest.” – Ashleigh Brilliant, English Author and Cartoonist I thought it was time I declared what I have known and fought against this past week.  I need a blogging break.

“What matters in life is not great deeds, but great love.” – St. Therese of Lisieux, Patron Saint of Flowers, Growers and Florists. Also known as ‘The Little Flower of Jesus’ I would describe myself as a spiritual person, though not religious. I don’t follow the teachings of any particular church, yet I have a […]


I love all art, but stories are my oxygen. I couldn’t live in a world where I couldn’t watch, read or tell stories. And film is the most engaging storytelling device of all, with the maestro of this experience being the screenwriter. As you’d expect of a long time film buff and writer, the Academy […]


After attacking shallow media consumption and the spread of false values, I thought I’d show that I’m not all serious and and dedicate this post to my latest crop of sexiest Hollywood actors. I say ‘latest’ because actors come and go and tastes change, so if I had written this 5 years ago, Russell Crowe […]


Do you know who this woman is? I don’t. But apparently she’s ‘famous’ and her name is Kim Kardashian. Wikipedia says she is a celebutante (huh?), socialite, model, actress and television personality who has a sex tape in circulation. Sounds like she’s making a real contribution to society, doesn’t she? You may be wondering why […]
