Voice Work, fundraising, and my new gardening business

Hello dear readers, I can’t believe it’s already May 2021. I’m now walking 50 to 100 k a month, in addition to my other pursuits, which you can read about below. I have been away for a while. In September I cycled 300 miles for Cancer Research: https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/hermiones-cycle-200-fundraising-page-1 I needed a month where I focusedContinue reading “Voice Work, fundraising, and my new gardening business”

On Beauty and Botox

I didn’t grow up in a world of Botox, although my thirty-something children did. My daughter once told me that getting work on your face was perfectly normal for her generation. At the time she was in the sixth form. I was quite shocked at the time. But I’ve rarely attempted to overtly influence myContinue reading “On Beauty and Botox”

On abortion; a positive story.

Beautybeyondbones.com inspired this post. I just read her post, which is a little political. Although it is also anti-abortion. For some reason, I’ve been thinking about this subject, of late, myself. Let’s just say I know a woman to whom it was once suggested she have an abortion by her well-meaning father-in-law.

Play “List” – Discover Prompts

Here’s my playlist: With thanks to Jeff Streeby for the artwork choices and production manager on the playlist. The voice is my own. It happened by accident. I mean, that’s how I see it. Of course every moment of my life led up to it: That day when, walking down the road with Simon Fuller,Continue reading “Play “List” – Discover Prompts”

Magic – Discover Prompts – Day 25

It’s magic. My superpower. It’s intuition. Sometimes I just get a feeling. Sometimes, I just know. They say if you don’t act within the first few seconds of a thought, you won’t commit to it. What is it you want to do? What voices are holding you back? Are they loud, impatient, scared voices? OrContinue reading “Magic – Discover Prompts – Day 25”
