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”

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”

Growth

Remember growth start from a tiny seed. Sometimes to get new growth you have to cut a great deal of dead wood away. Sometimes you need to cut right back to the base. Take my plant, passiflora edulis, I think. A couple of years ago I planted this plant in a semi-shady spot in theContinue reading “Growth”
