Love is the best medicine

"Love not only makes the world go round, it also boost your immune function, calms your heart and soul, and brings incredible joy." Quote By Loretta La Roche

Share the love - It's not a dirty word. We often contemplating whats wrong with our lives or the people in them. But we would be more joyful if we:

Start with loving ourselves: Get rid of the self criticism, relax, have fun and recognise the positives in our life.

Show others you love them: Complement them or give them a hug. Leave post it notes.

Who do you love, and who loves you? Enjoy them now!

Champagne and Strawberries

One of my favourite places is the Ariege. To me this is one of Frances best kept secrets. The air is clear, the sky is blue and the mountains are high. But best of all are the tranquil villages holding farmers markets where the produces are fresh, tasty and local. Food! Food! Food! What more can you ask of France?

During my last visit I was prompted to eat a strawberry with my champagne. Never one to pass up the bubbly, I indulged. I took a sip of the wet stuff and bit into the strawberry. My senses stood to attention. My taste buds threw a carnival and I’m sure I made some interesting noises. The strawberry was succulent, luscious, tart, moist and ripe. Flavour flooded into my mouth. Eating strawberries became an erotic experience.

So if you want a succulent experience grow your own strawberries or buy organic. They really do have taste. Then indulge in champers and strawberries with some fellow wild women. It is a great way of adding flavour to your life.

I'm a Brass Band

I love musicals always have and always will. But somewhere along the way I stopped singing and dancing because I was afraid someone was watching and judging. I became sad and started judging myself. But no more. For the past couple of years I have taken up singing for fun. At 43 I am learning the piano. I love both. I am watching all kinds of musicals. My current favourite song from the musicals is the song Somebody loves me - I'm a brass band from Sweet Charity. I love Shirely McLane's energy. Her Quirkyness and her sense of timing.

My wish is: To Sing as if no one is listening, Dance as if no one is watching and live as if there is only now.

Thanks Shirley for being my inspiration. Come join me!

Being Human

I am flawed, unique, willful, kind, funny and bloody minded. I am human.
