There is something about reading. Lots of us do it here on wordpress, it’s what has brought us together, and I tried to put into words exactly what it is that I love for Perdiz Magazine last week.
Hello Adult. This past week has been a week of lasts. My last Friday night as a twentysomething, my last Sunday lie-in as a twentysomething, my last painful Monday morning wake-up as a twentysomething…. In case it isn’t slap-you-in-the-face obvious, this week I turn 30. I am surprisingly not too tormented about the looming age milestone that many […]
One Day. I can’t remember exactly when I first started saying “one day”. I know I was very young. And I know I said it a lot. I also know that I say it as much now as I ever did then. I am the dreamer of the family with her head in the clouds. […]

Remembering childhood again thanks to The Daily Post… As I have been caught amidst a whirlwind of weddings and autumn colds I have decided to combine the last two assignments with this one vignette.

A life sized cabinet of curiosities… Its heavy air still seizes my nostalgic nose from my very first footstep inside. Its stuffed creatures still monitor me from every corner and kink of the room.
