Too often we drown out our inner voice with 'busyness'.

How does that happen?

  • we have too much on the go all at once
  • our gadgets distract us from our moments of introspection
  • family and work have us barely able to find extra time for ourselves
  • we are going through the motions to appear busy...

Much has been written lately about the busyness that is now commonly accepted as the new status symbol.

When Did Busy Become Cool?

The Cult of Being Busy

See what I mean?

As we come to the end of a brief summer in the northern hemisphere, we begin to slow down...we prepare our homes for winter, and we gather together with family and friends more often indoors than out.

May we all find quiet moments and listen for inspiration.

Inspiration quote
We never have to look far for inspiration. This is a photo I took in 2018 at the Mariposario de Benalmádena, Spain. This place is indeed magical with its flittering butterflies, the gurgling sounds of little streams and waterfalls, and the amazing colourful tropical flowers. I reworked the photo in several apps to give it this blurry appearance and then added the quotation.


No we don't need more sleep. It's our souls that are tired, not our bodies. We need nature. We need magic. We need adventure. We need freedom. We need truth. We need stillness. We don't need more sleep, we need to wake up and live. - Brooke Hampton.
