The journey begins. Thanks for sharing it with me...

I have a book in me. You know that feeling? You probably do too. A story to tell, lessons to share, experiences to deconstruct, moments to celebrate. This blog may end up a book, but for now it’s just about the here and now...

I don’t often read fiction, but this book was recommended to me by…I can’t recall who.  Not knowing anything about the book or the author, I read it.  Only after reading it, did I discover that it had been written in 1953.  Which surprised me, as the writing had transported me to a modern world.  […]

I’ve had just about enough of all the crap (yes I said it) trending on social media, about how to get into shape physically.  You’ll be happy when…it’s everywhere you look.  Which exercises to do for ‘perfect’ abs, how many squats to do for a ‘perfect butt’, which diet to get to your ‘dream weight’, […]
