Words of an author – the unknown and the planned

By | October 18th, 2017|daily life, holidays, literature|

It is so nice, how a novel can take you to some completely different place. I could be a young woman, living in an apartment, owned by an artist. I could be a junkie, living off scraps of his love. It could be raining outside and everything that I saw could be art. If I [...]

The Space Between the Stars – Anne Corlett

By | October 15th, 2017|literature, technology|

I have just finished reading The Space Between the Stars by Anne Corlett. What an amazing story. I picked it up because it is sci-fi and I am always interested in that particular genre of fiction. I am so glad that I did, because the story was fascinating. Jamie wakes up on a planet some [...]

How are you? I am hungry. I wanted to get home to cook fish. So I am cooking fish. What an amazing afternoon. Such a nice group of people, and so nice to drink beer on a Saturday afternoon. I really am so incredibly lucky. I thank my lucky stars that I have ended up [...]

Wednesday evenings when I should be out getting inspired

What are you listening to now? I am NP Izzy Bizu, I found her album recently, and it is that nice kind of female, upbeat music, which can be nice at this time of day. It definitely has some soul flavours. :-) So, I guess I am not going out! I stepped out my front [...]

Wow! I am so wrecked. It is good to be home. There is only so much alcohol that I can pour into my tired, teary soul. I am not going to lie to you. I would do anything to be in your arms right now. Hopefully it is a trend, but I was so chatty [...]

I did it anyway, hehe. I just felt like walking more than anything and it was so nice to venture out of the usual boundaries of my neighbourhood. There were fun things to see and do! Then my feet got sore from walking. Haha, I am the queen of whinging today, hehe. I figure it [...]

without the benefit of evolution

By | May 1st, 2017|light art, literature, photography, relationships|

And in this Brave New World, I still react emotionally to this situation as a real live human being with feelings and emotions that have taken millions of years to evolve. Without the benefit of a hundred or so years to adapt to this new virtual reality world, it still hurts, just as much as [...]

The Versions of Us – Laura Barnett

By | February 17th, 2017|literature|

It is such a brilliant and interesting idea. Different versions of the same story. To reflect on how your life might be different if you had said yes. Some decisions are trivial, and life carries on in much the same way, after an initial bump. Some decisions are life changing. If only you could trace [...]
