Why didn’t you Tell?


The arm in this picture tells a powerful story. Why didn't you tell? Why didn't you say something? Let me have a think about it... I guess the teachers, family therapists, doctors and ICU staff don't count. Nor do the parents of friends, police officers, Health Dept. It was almost a full-time job as a... Continue Reading →

Triggers and PTSD


We have to share with each other; it's an absolute necessity. I have seen people retreat, building a fort around their minds and hearts. I can tell you from experience, it is the absolute worst thing that you can do. I have seen brilliant people rescind mid-way through stellar careers and lives,  eaten alive by depression and the...

To my joy, I found magazines for 30 cents each, some dating back thirty years. It was extraordinary, the information on the pages. So much has changed regarding everything from medical advice to technology. Here is... Continue Reading →

The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever!


My daughter and I and some dear friends went to Sydney Park last Saturday to pay homage to Kate Bush, whilst at the same time, denouncing domestic violence. I used to listen to Wuthering Heights as a young girl, living under the oppressive understanding that a violent and possessive man would be deciding when my... Continue Reading →

The Handmaid’s Tale


The Handmaid's Tale, a series based on Margaret Atwood's 1985 book, has just been released in Australia. Last night I streamed it, determined to watch only the first episode and have an early night. Of course, that didn't happen. What ended up occurring was I watched all ten episodes. It was confronting and terrifying,  yet... Continue Reading →
