Board Game Inspiration

This is the third Friday in a row I’ve had the opportunity to play board games with a group, different groups each time, and I am loving it! To think, over the last couple of years around this time of year, getting together with groups of people indoors — especially different groups of people — […]

Atmospheric River

The wind is howling outside. I don’t mean metaphorically: the air is moving sideways and upside down and inside out, twisting its way so noisily through the cracks in this over-100-year-old house I wonder if I will get to see Oz. Freaky Friday indeed. Last year in November we had a series of “atmospheric rivers” […]

New Rhythms

Journeying Towards The New

In the spirit of renewal and being made new again, I’ve decided to start a new blog to document my journey, as I’ve set off to Middle Earth and the Land Down Under in search of renewal, restoration, healing… and of course adventure! Starting in a fresh space will, I hope give me the freedom […]

Pause For Adventure

I’ve been on pause for a few months now. And by “pause” I mean a rather long break, and by “I” I mean this blog. After my last post on the last day of November, in which I successfully blogged every single day (cue applause track), I fell off the blogging bandwagon hard – or maybe […]
