Winter bugs, self-care of thoughts

It’s spring in New Zealand, the blossom trees are full of pink and white flowers. Together with yellow and creamy white daffodils and the birds chirping it’s a reminder of new things to come. When I’m outside in the sunshine and I move my body I feel part of something bigger coming to life. IContinue reading “Winter bugs, self-care of thoughts”

Rubbish and Responsibility

Reading about the storm that uncovered a sealed up landfill site, blowing rubbish from 50 years ago across a riverbed on the West Coast of New Zealand.

For the last year I have not worked in the traditional sense of having a job, office,Continue reading “On Consistency and Stagnation”

On Learning more and knowing less

I’ve been drifting. Not in a motorcar on a dirt road but within myself. A three week intensive Yoga immersion saturated my brain with information and self-talk. I was supposed to become a capable teacher of yoga, that’s what I paid money towards, right?! Turns out it’s a much longer road, not really a surprise…Continue reading “On Learning more and knowing less”
