    The Ocean as Support for Grief

    The ocean has been a reliable companion when I've struggled with grief. Its immense presence seems to help contain my tears. Word Baths are my ritual of defining my word for the day. (Thankfully not sad today, but offering for those who are.)

    The Jacaranda on Belonging

    I love what the Jacaranda has to say about belonging, and letting go of injuries. Just thinking of this cheery tree is a comforting summery thought for the dark of winter. "Plant Talk" is my book about nature's support for sickness and suffering with illustrations by Caroline Bagnall. Currently editing the first draft.

    Support from a Sunflower

    Yes Sunflower, it is "so very hard to leave (my) computer and put down the phone." Just because advice is obvious doesn't make it any easier to follow!

    Tenderness to Self

    TENDERNESS is so much easier to find for a sweet fuzzy animal than for our wounded grumpy selves. (Not that these wallabies were about to lash out at me!) Asking for a Word for the day is my writing ritual, I then bathe in whatever definition arises. What is your definition of Tenderness?

    Tolerance for a Friday

    Tolerance - a good word for a Friday when the tank refill is very very close....

    Meanwhile, there is always a cup of tea. My Word Baths are my definitions of a word that pops up for me first thing in the morning. A great writing ritual as at least I have written something before breakfast.

    Getting it out

    I wrote a free verse poem this morning to get out a lot of resentment that's been building against my ex and it's the most cathartic releas I've had in a WHILE #Poetry #Journaling #anxietyrelief #astepforward

    Hobby and Therapy

    I started to make candles recently, just for fun but it turned out that it has been a great therapy... I feel less anxious. I guess the waiting for the wax to cool and making some brain storming on the decoration for each candle has given me some patience! #Hobby #candles #anxietyrelief

    Just stop a minute.

    Stop a minute.

    Take a deep breathe. No really stop and take a slow breathe up through your nose hold and then a slow let out.

    Sometimes we are so wrapped up in our head with what is going on we forget to breathe.

    Don't forget to relax and have some peace and quiet.

    Peace be still as it says in the Bible. Not that easy to do but so helpful.
