Lessons galore in adaptation

I knew it was going to be a big project, but I didn’t expect it to be quite so bloomin character-building… At the start of this year, I decided to pursue two new projects. One was this blog, the other was producing a show in the theatre.  Both were scary and challenging in their own … Continue reading “Lessons galore in adaptation”

Too tired poetry

I’m flattened this week. Too many things going on with my show to even consider forming articulate and honest words that anyone else may be interested in.  So, I’m cheating and raiding my poetry collection for words that I wrote really quite some time ago. I hope you enjoy them, here you are, some of … Continue reading “Too tired poetry”

Searching for home, and adding the fourth S

Home. A place where I belong and I don’t have to leave or lose. This is what I’ve been seeking for my whole adult life. Since I left my parent’s home in a rupture of security that I have never fully recovered from, I have felt like a nomad in this world. This is the … Continue reading “Searching for home, and adding the fourth S”

Liebster Award thanks

  I’ve accidentally delayed writing this post, sorry. The excellent Julianne Gilchrist kindly nominated my blog as an entry for the Liebster awards, an award for bloggers to share other blogs with <200 followers (only 192 to go for me to be disqualified then…) Julianne posed me some questions to answer: “You have five hours … Continue reading “Liebster Award thanks”

Come to me my Melon Cauli Baby

Today for my blog I have made un petit film Francais called “Come to me my Melon Cauli Baby”. You can see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrzHNbQ5UlU Here is the story behind it, in brief. I was feeling sad on Monday, and to cheer myself up I put on a new record I bought at a flea … Continue reading “Come to me my Melon Cauli Baby”

5-4-3-2-1 How to build a rocket ship

Slightly different direction for today’s post. My thoughts are a bit tangly and overwhelming this week, so instead of waffling on about myself, I’m going to write up my Easter project – the Carter Space Craft!  (Not every single step mind, or we’d be here all year.) Step 1. In designing a dragon-bonfire made of … Continue reading “5-4-3-2-1 How to build a rocket ship”

A bout of brain vs heart

I had planned to write a funny blog this week about a Sunny project. However, it is still a surprise so I can’t yet. So I’m going to write one that is much harder to write. One that fits with my aim of honesty, of wiping away the veneer of excellentness and sanity. As I’ve … Continue reading “A bout of brain vs heart”

The cauldron of advice

Advice. How do you know what to say? How do you know what to receive? I have reached out for advice every time I’ve been floundering in the past while.  Except I haven’t really meant it most of the time.  Because, actually, I am a big fat stubborn force-shield to advice. Star Trek “Shields fully … Continue reading “The cauldron of advice”
