When you look at yourself in the mirror what do you see? If you’re anything like me you’ll see a changed version of yourself every time. So often it depends on how I wake up and the mood I’m in. There are days I feel accepting and even beautiful and there are days when I … More Mirror of my thoughts
Careful what you wish for. A few days ago, while putting together my post on Solitude I wrote “Sometimes I think I’d be happy living on a deserted island”. I ended up deleting that line but the thought must have stuck. Yesterday the internet was out, the phones were on the blink and I wasn’t … More Cookies, sea salt and a Desert island
