| its ok to not be ok | I posted this little graphic around 18 months ago and remember over 150 people writing to me in response. I posted it at a time when I needed to remind myself that its ok to not be ok. You see yesterday I had a little meltdown.

As the truth of this sunk in I simply needed to have…

Dear Italy  Four years ago you welcomed me to your soil for a month of recovery healing and restoration. I walked for kilometers through  your peaceful countryside delighted in your artisanal pastries drink your luscious wines and prayed in the most beautiful of sanctuaries.   I wish now that I could offer you the same healing balm you extended to me those many years ago.  For now your streets may not fully carry the festive shouts and cheerful faces that I witnessed years ago. Please know… Pastries, Wines, Countryside, Recovery, The Balm, Festive, Restoration, Most Beautiful, Healing

| stay strong South Africa  | Im still in shock after watching our president address South Africa around the coronavirus. A strong address showing the leadership that is now needed.

The good news is you can be part of the annual May event: watch…
