Observations about culture and its impact on art, modern life, trends and so on.

A fairy tale for our times…and, of course, a new ending

We have been told an old old (old) story so many times before that, even when a new version comes along, we think its still the same story…or do we? And is it? Not when seen through new fifth-dimensional “eyes”. Join me in looking at one of the most popular stories of the moment through these very eyes… Continue reading

Let’s look at it another way…

If what I’m hearing from my daughter is anything to go by, a huge wave of talented and driven young people are now talking as though their main ambition, post-graduation, is to leave these shores to live and work elsewhere, … Continue reading

How we encourage empathy…and not just in women

In a world full of people that are, we are told, less empathic than ever, how do we encourage more empathy? Do women naturally have more empathy than men, as one study suggests, or do they develop this by reading more fiction, something which men are far less inclined to do? If so, how do we plug this gap in our boy’s emotional intelligence? An article (linked) that I read this week set me off on this line of thought and these are some additional thoughts I have to contribute… Continue reading

How about women taking back the reins of their own evolution

New Year is coming so, before you sign up for YET another new “spiritual” self-improvement (or any other kind of) program, consider these thoughts from a couple of valuable women writers and a few of my own…And take pause to consider why do you even need some sort of authority figure to guide you to where you want to go next; isn’t it time that became the very next belief system that you throw in the shredding machine ready to fully explore the inner guru that you already are?

Speaking out for each other

Whatever “story” is making you heart weep right now, be it the ecosystem, treatment of animals or of people (there’s a lot to choose from…), I say to you, don’t run away from it but take steps to be active in it; taking POSITIVE action, which is being your light in an earthly sense and in ways that don’t deplete but invest you in your humanness. That’s what I am doing here, with this story to share…asking for your help. When we all work together, fuelled by the heart, extraordinary things can happen… Continue reading

The festive underbelly

Part of me finds christmas quite abhorrent because meat gluttony peaks at this time of year and there’s really no escaping it. Everywhere I look –  in my newsfeed, in commercials and many of the websites I use to do … Continue reading
