so far, yet so near


isn't it amazing to think
that despite our location on this planet,
despite how far away we might sometimes feel,
we are all under the same sky, 
we all feel the heat of the same sun, 
we all see the same moon 
and witness the twinkling of the same stars.

inhaling peace


as a new day dawns
i realise a simple truth about
that space inside me
that empty space
abandoned by each breath-
i, and only i,
get to choose what
enters that space.
all i want to be filled with today
is
peace.

good beginnings


fruity, colourful, healthy.
what could be better to start the day with?

the slow march forward


one foot in front of the other
one step at a time
that's how i move forward

sometimes it can impossible
often it is achingly slow
but looking back i see how far i have come

and that gives me the strength 
to keep going
and to have faith in what lies ahead

chemistry in action


it is basic chemistry in action
but there is something magical about fireworks


watching the night sky explode in colour reaches deep into the child in my soul


but seeing my children's excited faces and hearing their exclamations of delight
was even more wonderful than the sparkles and sounds in the sky.

the firework display we attended last night was part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of the school my children attend.
