“Let’s use the power of words to help others and imagine the positive impact we can have on the world around us.”

Whatcha reading?

Had the chance to catch up on reading. Here are my favourite books. What’s yours?

Dinner for Four

It’s an age old question that seems to be important to a lot of people. You most likely would have been asked it in your life in some shape or form and that question is, ’if you were to invite anyone in the world (living or deceased) to a dinner party who would those guests be?’

Hell Awaits Our Unfortunate Inmates

Bring me that one and that one! He appears to be at a loss. You will all reminded I AM THE BOSS! Prison life in this instance is a descent into Hell.

Television and Cinema: The big vs small debate

When I was younger the big screen was held as the epitome of the entertainment industry. There were popular television shows but if you really wanted your name in lights the cinema and the great red carpet premieres were the ultimate goal. Is this something of a bygone era now?

Reasons to Smile

We can find ourselves feeling overwhelmed but sometimes the simple things are the ones to make us smile the most.


Where have we come from? Where do we plan to go? What have we offered the world around us? To me those are the true measures of success.

Toxic Free Zone

I have hit on this subject matter before but since it is something that really resonates with me and it seems something that so many people have to deal with in their daily lives I am going to broach the subject again

Holiday Hums and New Year Bugs

I can almost hear the collective moan as we recover from a year long hangover of lockdowns and all sorts of other struggles. Regardless of that I hope you all had a great holiday.

The dark parts of your mind

What is art if not to influence? What are the dark reaches of the world if not to explore? What is curiosity if not a little on the morbid side?

Mothering Instinct

How would society be if we just treated people they way we do with mothers with young children in tow? how far we would go?


A question was raised to me the other day that really does bear thinking about. And that question was, ‘do you think violence in movies, books and video games creates more violence?’ Given the nature of my own work this is an interesting concept.

Achieve your Potential

My TS sisters are some of the most caring, loving, intelligent and delightfully creative women I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. It’s always a pleasure to help them achieve their full potential.

Nightmare Fuel

The dream world has always fascinated me. Those little stories that your mind tells you as you sleep can be vivid and memorable. They can be akin to some of the best experiences of your real world and they can also make you realise worst. Since I’m a lover of all things macabre I’m going to take a look at some of the darker moments I have experienced in the dream world.

Motto In Life

On a Sunday evening I have a list to dos to make my week ahead more positive and more creative. All these little things help give me a restful sleep and by extension a good start to Monday morning. Those little things matter.

Changing The World

What three ways would you change our world? It’s an interesting question. It’s one that was posed to me the other day and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since.

The Soundtrack Of Life

I am such a person that I spend a lot of my time stuck inside my own head. With this in mind it gave me cause to think of the part music plays in all our lives.

Words of Encouragement

It doesn’t matter what language, how it is said or who says it it is a word that sends your mind into a chain of thought. Words are influential. It’s easy enough for me to appreciate that being someone for whom words are bread and butter but everyone can be inspired them.

Socially Awkward

As we become such a distant bunch (global pandemic not withstanding) is the art of intimacy becoming a thing of the past?
