• Stop, for, against

    Something happens where you need to make a decision you are unclear on – because life happens. It is then brain worms enter the picture and cascade a whole range of spiral thoughts and complications. You can feel panic, lost in the moment. This isn’t a good place to make any decisions. Perhaps one of

  • Forty-six

    Years come and go, and as I get older, they seem to pass faster. I used to think that was something older people said; well, I’m one of those older people now, and I say it because I feel it. Today, I go around the cycle again and turn 46. It feels a large number

  • Brain catch pots

    Most of my plants are semi-hydroponic and, as a result, have catch pots. These are containers that hold the plant pot and collect the water. Often that’s overflow or drain from watering.

  • The judgement of storytelling

    If you say to anyone, ‘but I thought you were,’ this probably means you had told their story without them having the opportunity to tell theirs. They didn’t get the opportunity to tell you. Likely this means you also didn’t get their story right because the only true teller of someone’s story is them. Our
