Something beautiful in everything



The demolition and construction next door has brought nothing but misery. At midnight a team arrived with the digger that would reduce the old house to rubble. Our fence all but fell down and we were left with no privacy and no security for two months until (again at midnight) a second team arrived to begin construction. We have just 22 more days to endure this as in March 1st we will move to another house in a new part of the city. Yesterday we were given some privacy at last in the form of a hastily erected canvas sheet between us and the site. It was a relief, and today it afforded enough peace and space for me to notice a small and fragile jasmine flower against the rotting concrete and florid blue of the canvas screen.

My Self-Help Addiction

Today I am getting up close and personal with my self-help habit.  I have been looking for answers for years but seem no closer to finding them than when I first began to look.  Could it be that the search is futile?

Once a blogger

I was wondering, if you once blogged regularly do you always long for it? Time and time again I am drawn back to Imagine the North, although sadly - as the many false restarts will attest - I seem unable to capture the former magic.  I guess we have moved on (and away) from blogging.  The closest thing I have to it is Instagram.  Like ItN my Instagram account provides me of diary of partial highlights; but still, I miss the text, the insight (my own insight gained through the act of putting a thought into words, a small concept with a beginning, middle and end) and the comments from friends.

Anyway here I am again, giving the old corpse of my blog a tentative poke with a stick, wondering if it is too far gone to resurrect.

Can the US election make me a better person?

New video up about the US Election .

Everyone is talking about it but I hope I am bringing a new perspective to the table, albeit a very personal one .
