About me

She believed it was possible to feel your eye narrow and your pupil dilate.

Nicole Cullinan

I have so much desire for all that life offers. New experiences, old habits and finding the joy in the everyday. A poetic point of view. There are more people reading my blog than I could have imagined. This makes me feel responsible and recalcitrant in equal measure. It also makes me think about the truth.

The truth is a complex thing in todays social media landscape. Some people assume there is more truth as you can discover so much about a person online, but for me it is an opportunity to curate my own identity. I will always post content with sincerity but at this time I take the opportunity to remind you much is omitted.

I have a beautiful family, three daughters and one son. They range in age from 16 to 22 years. I was born to breed and for a long time spoke of a fifth…I know; crazy. Children, such overwhelming love. I will not be writing about them. I want to hold all of those memories and happenings close to my heart; a secret that is just for me. This may be selfish but I think it’s important for my family. We have things that are unique to us and they are unifying.

I spend quite some time in service of community. This is a private part of my life. I have had strong community connections all my life that came from my Mother, she is the kindest person I know. For me, these relationships are part of the fabric of my life. To write about them would be akin to exploiting a friend. In some cases, friends I have had for one or two decades. This doesn’t make me a good or bad person; just a person trying to find their way in life, seeking a little of that overused word; balance.

I’m so looking forward to sharing with you the comings and goings of life. All things art, design, lifestyle, travel and love from a poetic point of view.
