The story we tell ourselves is the backdrop to our lives.  Transform your story, transform your life.  Maybe it’s time for a change.  Don’t live by default.  On this site I share my stories and my interest in yours and whatever is opening up for you now.

I help people dissolve the past using stories so we free up the future by stretching fully in the present.

    • I enjoy the philosophy behind your work and your style of story telling. Thanks for this kind comment. Great to be in touch on the blogosphere. Looking forward to enjoying more of your posts.


    • Ecuador sounds bliss Kathryn! I love keeping up to date with your views of the world via your blog. So great to be in contact via the blogosphere. I love your narratives and look forward to reading more of your posts.

      Hugs from rather cold Oxfordshire (but at least we got some daffodils!)



    • This is so exciting and very kind of you! I am thrilled. This is an honour. I understand if you needed to re nominate though simply because I may struggle to respond properly to this for a while! I feel this award needs some time to do full justice to it. It is a great opportunity,

      I am loving your blog and enjoy following your progress on the land. Your book reviews too are a great resource as are the advice about what to grow (the photographs are motivating me lots!). I am just starting to re do our pots out in the garden so I am getting great ideas from your blog. Looking forward to reading more of your posts.

    • Ahh Jenni this is so kind!! You have an incredible blog, a pleasure to visit, that tells me so much about history and literature and also makes me smile. You write about politics clearly and with vibrancy. I also wish to thank you for your super supportive comments on my posts! ;-D This is so lovely of you. I will try to do justice to this award with a shining post but I may struggle to do this for a wee while though so I understand if you wish to re nominate.

      I hope you are having a lovely Sunday. We got a bit of sunshine here (hurrah) and the daffodils are out. Looking forward to catching up with your latest posts and enjoying more of your super blog.

      • Take your time – it took me 2 to 3 days to do this after my nomination as there was a lot going on this weekend. Thank you for comments and trust me when I say they mean a great deal. So take the time you need and enjoy your week. Jenni xx

    • Hi Shmruthi! Great to hear from you. Thank you for kind words although I cannot compete with the terrific range of destinations you write so knowledgeably about. I have had a brilliant time visiting your blog and the photographs from Cambodia along with your travelogue is a must read.

      Can’t wait to read more! Pleasure to know you too 😀

      • Ok I am blushing now 😀 but seriously, I have always been in awe of people in theater and those who can weave magic with words like you do! It’s like my never-attainable secret fantasy.
        I am ecstatic that you like my blog and so glad to share this space with you here 😀

      • I think all writers create theatre (via imagery) so include yourself in weaving magic with words. It’s inspiring to read your travelogue.

        Here’s to lots of happy blogging!


    • Hi Shmruthi That is so incredibly kind of you! I appreciate you offering me this! I have been lucky that once before I got given this historic internet award. The Liebster is so important and encourages me so much in my blogging. I can write up your blog for sure on my Liebster page. I thank you so much for the offer but concede that another blog without the Liebster would enjoy it so much! 😀

      • That’s incredibly kind!! 😀 I love the joy and fun in your post on the unique bamboo trains! Your blog paints a unique portrait of every new destination you visit. Bravo on winning your award Shmruthi!


    • Your work has a presence and I always look forward to reading your latest post on my reader. The Versatile Blogger Award is such a great prize and I am honoured that you think of me for this. I have been lucky to have an earlier nomination for this Award. I understand if you wish to renominate! I will in any event add details of your superb site to my post with gratitude!


    • Hello! I enjoy your style of writing so much. I am honoured you thought of me. Because I have been lucky enough to receive this award before it may make more sense to pick another nominee? I look forward to more visits to your blog and will look out for your posts. Your blog has a distinct voice and originality and I congratulate you on your well-deserved award. I wish you huge success!

    • Hello! I just enjoyed a visit to your website. You write with such warmth. I think everyone on the nominations list is different, so I don’t know the answer to how they will be similar. It’s so exciting that everyone has a unique blog, this way we all learn so much.

      Looking forward to enjoying your work in my Reader and send blessings to you.
