Good morning

“The question is not what you look at, but what you see.”
― Henry David Thoreau

Here I am again, sat at my desk, coffee poured and...writing this little post.

And, without wishing to sound too pretentious, it feels right.

It's day #2 of my return to work — no big deal, right, but then again, it won't be long before we turn the corner on another year. 

Life flows, inexorably.

The future — ah, that's just a dream (and lots more thinking, apparently).

The past — that's done, over and never, save in our heads, to return again.

And now: it's all we've got.

Whilst I can't say how or what is happening right now, I do know that being here, no matter how sh*t it might appear, is a gift and one I'd like to think I'll continue, not that I'm in charge, to embrace as best I can.

Much love ❤️, Ju.

The flow of life

"Life isn’t a problem to be understood or solved: it’s a river flowing. If for some reason you believe you’re separate from it, and that somehow you’re doing it, there will be a huge amount of mental anguish." -- Darryl Bailey, Dismantling the Fantasy: An Invitation to the Fullness of Life (pp. 57-58). New Harbinger Publications. Kindle Edition.

My tweets


I don't know what it is but it appears less and less relevant to me.

It was once my go-to place. These days, within a few seconds of showing up, I know I've made a mistake.


It's all so bloody gloomy.

I'm not suggesting that everything in the world is beautiful, but, as a long-time subscriber of Positive News, I know it doesn't have to be like that.

Perhaps this is another reason why I'm now spending more (and more) time on Livejournal. It's interesting, fun and the engagement, well, it's brilliant.

What's your experience of Twitter, assuming, that is, you even have an account?

Blessings, Ju.


PS. As to LinkedIn, I'm not going to waste time talking about it!
