Walk on

When she made her visit to the UK last month, for the first time in 24 years, Aung San Suu Kyi shone like a bright light for me against a backdrop of world leaders and political figures somehow unable to speak authentically or stand up for what they truly believe in. Despite being exiled from her husband and sons - and spending 15 of the last (more…)

A perfect storm

It was my last day in Italy and I decided to get the bus down the mountainside to the coast and spend the day swimming somewhere off Trieste's rocky coastline. But the universe had other plans. Just as I'd crawled out of the water after my first dip and put my sarong down on the ground as a 'towel', the clouds started to gather and an electric (more…)

It’s in the little things

I continued to follow the signs, inwardly and outwardly, for the rest of that day. And moment flowed beautifully into moment, synchronicity into synchronicity.

One morning on my Italian trip, I waved my friends off in their camper van (they were due to explore Germany and France before returning to England a couple of weeks later) and wandered off, rucksack on back, into the Italian heat, unsure of where my adventures would take me next.

Once in Italy, I was joined by some friends from England - a couple who had been travelling round Europe by camper van - and our Italian friend Giorgio. We were due to spend some time with his family near Venice and then drive from there to his native town of Trieste on the north east coast. There we would find ourselves a campsite, while Giorgio drove separately back to Trieste and returned to work (he was working as a research scientist at the university there) Read More...

The wisdom of the Tao

I found myself part of an amusing scene at Gatwick Airport last Saturday. I had a ticket to Venice departing that day but wasn't clear until I was on the train and halfway to the airport, whether I would actually go or not (ie, whether it was 'on my path' to go). I had had an extroadinary week with some unusual things happening to me energetically (more on that later) and wanted to honour where I was at and what was the right thing to do Read More...
