Learning, what and how

We learn all the time, that’s for sure. We don’t have to go to school to learn, but when we go to school we learn there too. What is it that we learn? That is the question, an important one, the only one that really matters. What do we learn? Once that question is discovered,…

Suffocation

Fear and anxiety Insecurity Distorted perception Suspicion, sarcasm a form of aggression Denial of all these the doors shut to healing only the perpetuity of all the feelings loneliness, shame, longing Love just a myth all those who appear to have it therefore just pretending which is a form of lying and herein lies the…

Slow down or race right along

Chasing is exhausting Yet we chase We are born into the race And so we learn to hurry up From early on Tired the norm Our state of being Hard to remember Anyway There is no time for that Remembering Life’s too short for that Who wants to live in the past Anyway Let alone…

Myth makers

And it was evening and it was morning, another day.  And we said, let there be love. And then we lived it, we made it so. We chose to be gods: to love and forgive, not ignorant of your humanness our shadowside, our tiredness. It’s is not by pretense that we become gods but by…

Love is not a fairy tale, it is a myth

Love is whatever we make of it. We get to define it. We have to decide it, define it, imagine it, create it, live it. If we don’t do these things, love will not exist. This is something I’ve written that kind of explains, to myself, my own perplexing journey in search of romantic love….

Unicorns and all such things

Scapegoat

This is no laughing matter, but rather more common than what most of us are ready to recognise or admit. Personally, I think it almost requires a process of enlightenment to gain awareness of this sort of thing going on around us, close to us and even to and from ourselves.  This has been the…

Expansion

I’ve been looking for space more space inner space outer space living space breathing space not exactly astronaut space just more place to move and breathe and have my being space to discover me without judgement without criticism without rejection ouch! that awful word and feeling that made the me withdraw masks and pretense is…

The Patriarchy of Disconnection

I have not published for a while and whilst 20 drafts sit waiting to be published, I’m writing something new. It has been a weekend of celebrating the wonder of words and poetry. Yesterday evening I attended a beautiful event on the beautiful peninsula of Gower, where I live. This event was in honour of…
