Motherhood:

A twisting turning, (occasionally) turbulent journey, one may suddenly find oneself embarking on; whereby a soul with unknown intent or forces incarnates into a tiny body, that we carry for a period of 9 months, (and worry about for the rest of our lives.) And though it is often the fathers, whom are invited to … Continue reading Motherhood:

Just Stand Still

Fuerteventura! Ancient Isle of good fortune. And fierce winds. Fitting that this is where I find myself. Christmas Day 2017. Small piece of volcanic rock preventing the pages of this book from fluttering hysterically. Beating sun, whipping wind competing for my body temperature.   Fitting, but of course, no accident.

And it didn't matter what form they came in, be it feathered or furry, so long as I could look … Continue reading They are ours only to love… And only for a short space of time…

Metamorphisis

"You've changed," they say. And I want to laugh. As though I could have done anything but? As though I could withstand an inferno and emerge unaltered...? "You've changed," they say. But it isn't a compliment. They didn't expect it. They didn't see it coming. And now it's here; political, passionate, vegetarian 👀 in all … Continue reading Metamorphisis
