Finding the Time Time. That ever elusive concept that keeps slipping through my fingers. The times I don’t have enough time to sit down and write, but I have enough time to do everything else. The Chores. Work. Cooking food. Finding time to write is always difficult. Half of it is because I need an … More Finding the Time (September Update)
August has always been an “end” month to me. I think my brain never quite fully shook the school year when I left it many moons ago. I lived for so long in a September – September existence that even now when I can finally run by the normal calendar year, August still feels like … More More Learnings from my Travels (August Update)
There is some part of me that does not quite believe it’s the end of July. It feels an almost surreal month, one which merges with June because it’s both a “J” month in my head (and June and July look so similar it’s easy to get them muddled – thanks dyslexia!)

I love springtime … More Learnings from my Travels (April Update)

February has been somewhat of … More Redefining Success (February Update)
