Sometimes life is like a theatre play that you look forward to seeing but when you arrive at the venue you realise you’ve mistakenly booked the wrong performance. You do feel devastated but you still get in, sit quietly in the dark waiting for it to start; expecting to be frustrated. However, it turns out […]Read more "The World Out There"
I love it when it’s so quiet early in the morning you can hear your own thoughts. It’s usually after Shadow has woken me up at five to get his portion and then retired upstairs to sleep on the sofa in the spare room. You can only feel distant muted noises and the aroma of […]Read more "Silent Time"

It’s never late to take on a new adventure and […]Read more "Do more of what makes you happy"

It’s utterly overwhelming, these two days […]Read more "Sunshine piercing my soul"
Recently I did model for a an extraordinary figurative realist artist which I was fortunate to meet at an art fair. I did mention to few of my friends but it somehow surprised me the similarity in their their reaction – ‘Did you pose naked?’. It made me wonder why this should be the first […]Read more "Naked Thoughts"
