Some long forgotten videos which I had made over 10 years ago, recently came to light. They took me back to my previous ‘incarnation’ in the business world, a life I have now forgotten. It seems odd to look back and not recognise myself in what was the largest era of my life, to date. … More A previous incarnation
Observing my cat, Bryngwyn, got me thinking. My ever present ‘assistant’ was helping me muck out the horses’ stables (in truth, he was more a hindrance, as he buries his pooh in the bed which is difficult to find and otherwise ends up on the bottom of my boot) and went to great lengths to … More A peculiar type of logic
Christmas is a non-event for me. Partly because I live on my own in the middle of nowhere but also because it really has ‘lost the plot’ and become a season of extreme commercialisation and over-indulgence. I admit, I like to have lunch with family or friends if that’s logistically possible, which it was this … More Let there be light!
This week, an old horse who has been living as a companion to my horse Talisman for the last few months, is being put to sleep. He’s reached the ripe old age of 36 and is now quite disorientated. He also has poor eyesight and has gone off his food, so it doesn’t seem right … More A matter of life and death
I have always been interested in how the heady mix of our human ‘make-up’, early life experiences and spiritual outlook leads us to be passionate about certain things and often motivates our path through life. A fascination with human behaviour led me to study psychology at university and I later found the human dynamic played … More What makes us who we are?
I gawped in amazement at yet another stunning sunset and was filled with wonderment at how every sunset is unique and exquisite. One of the only advantages of the short winter days is that I am outside feeding the animals at sundown and able to enjoy the natural ‘wall to wall art’ which is omnipresent … More Our true human nature
By definition, balance is something that changes all the time in response to people and the world around us. But once things start to go wrong, life can easily get out of control. So what does it feel like to be balanced and why is it so important, how do you notice when you have … More How to regain your balance and equilibrium when life gets out of control (podcast)
Talisman’s next friend (number 5 in 10 months) was Polly, a small but rotund little person from just up the road. I was hoping she would be ‘Polly Perfect’ but it was not to be. She was great with Talisman and he adored her though, in fairness, he adores all friends. But when I took … More Solving life’s puzzles
Something I learned very early on in life is that one of the few things you can count on is change – whether at work, in relationships, health or anything else. The thing that’s so stressful is fear of the unknown, so learning how to handle yourself through the process and making it work for … More Affirmations and how to change your life (podcast)
Glorious sunshine continued for several weeks, so much so that I came to expect it to be the first thing to greet me each morning. I even started fantasising about what it would be like to live in a warmer climate where sunny weather is the norm. Sadly, it’s now back to a mix of … More The poetry factor
