Stories, Thoughts, Reflections and Poetry

Writing is a response to the impetus to express; to engage with (and share) meaning, and to inform - possibly even - to challenge and educate. Writing can be reflection as well as reflexive. It can be a gift as well as an instruction – it can be a self-scripting conscience informed guide: at times deepening  and at other times lightening, mood, insight and intent.

My most frequent reflections are on the themes of discovery, contradiction, resolution, resilience and wonder.



“In a fractured age, when cynicism is God, here is a possible heresy: we live by stories, we also live in them. One way or another we are living the stories planted in us early or along the way, we are also living the stories we planted - knowingly or unknowingly - in ourselves. We live the stories that either give our lives meaning, or negate it with meaninglessness. If we change the stories we live by, quite possibly we change or lives.”

- Ben Okri, “A Way of Being Free” -
