30 Day Challenge, Day 28. Do you wish for anything at 11.11?


Some people believe that 11.11 is magical. It is said that if you note the time is 11.11, it gives you pause for thought. It can indicate that the angels are sending you love. It is claimed that it is a master number. If I glance at my phone and see it is 11.11, I will close my eyes and shut out the world for that precious minute.

30 Day Challenge, Day 25. Who would I rather date?


The challenge today is to answer the question, would I rather date someone plain with an amazing personality or someone beautiful with a plain personality?

  1. Firstly, I would like to ask, what is plain? To my mind, it is purely subjective. What you  find interesting and beautiful, I may not and vice versa. Attractiveness is not only skin-deep. It is the quality of a person’s thoughts and the beauty in their heart. It streams forth from their eyes and aura like a beacon. Who hasn’t felt an angry person’s vibe, long before they speak? I would rather date somebody with a stunning personality, absolutely! One that speaks not about others and the minutiae of their lives, but speaks to me of concepts, creativity, philosophy and love.

30 Day Challenge, Day 23. A Letter to Someone


10351962_982305048470007_6538428472038585844_n

(Letter to my Daughter)

My darling little girl,

We have just celebrated your ninth birthday. Where did the time go? I want you to know that there is no need to do anything to make me happy. I love you in your petulant moments, through your anger and tears and also in your joyous times. There is no award or trophy you need to gain to win this love. My darling, this world has already tried to box you in, and label you. We wont let them. You are just as defiant as I, already with a finely-tuned inbuilt detector for nonsense. You are not just “pretty,” “dramatic,” “artistic,” “athletic,” “good at maths.” These are components of what makes you who you are, but my darling, you are not one-dimensional. I pray you never pay mind to anyone that says you are. You came to me perfect, with a grand purpose for your exquisite life. It’s great fun slowly uncovering what that purpose is, watching as your destiny is unfurled through a series of clues.  It presents as your interests, the songs and movies you love, the colours and books you adore. It presents in the things you say. Hold onto your sense of self, and take pride in being an individual. Your kind heart and sensitive soul will hold you in good stead. I will love you forever. I knew you long before you were born. I knew you from my dreams. With all my love, Mummy xxx

30 Day Challenge, Day 21. Turn-on’s and the Opposite!


What fills me with glee?

Songwriters

Guinea Pigs

Art

Nature

These things also fill my cup:

Coffee! Almonds! Birds! Music! Comfy shoes! Spare time! Spring! Going on a long walk! Adventure! Parks! Musicals and Theatre Productions! Colour! Laughter! Books! Hearing children sing!

Things that don’t float my boat:

Fundamentalist anything. Loud neighbours. Cars that refuse to start. Horror or crime movies. People that shout. Door-to-door sellers of anything. People with no empathy. Packaging; why is there so much packaging on everything?! Bullies. Telephones and speaking on them. Flat-packs of furniture.

I have attended many concerts in my time. Some that come to mind are:

The Eurythmics. I was a child and they were extraordinary!

Tim Finn and Paul Kelly at the Opera House. Incredible songwriters.

thRDXBFG00

Lolo Lovina. They pierce your soul.

Katy Perry. My little girl adores her, and I must say, I do too.

The Old Married Couple.  Gorgeous humans I am proud to call friends.

I have been to many Indie concerts in small venues, as well as scores of festivals. Sydney has at least one festival each week! It’s a great way to uncover new talent. I always buy the cd’s. I haven’t even mentioned theatre and musicals, both of which I love.  In the years to come I hope to get to many more concerts!
