The Emotions of Quarantine

The world is in lockdown. Over 169 nations/regions have at least one confirmed case of Covid-19, and the number of global infections is rising exponentially.

What does a lockdown mean?

Why I Love Silence

“Silence isn’t empty, it’s full of answers.” As we all head into a period of self-isolation or lockdown, there will be an odd sensation for us to experience, silence.

Dear Scott Morrison…

Dear Scott Morrison, you chose to become Prime Minister. You didn’t have to put up your hand for the leadership of the Liberal Party, but you did. Therefore, any criticism towards you is valid and highlights the passion of the people you are meant to lead. Dear Scott Morrison, while the country was suffering, you…

Why I Love Hope

‘Everything that is done in this world is done by hope.’ When someone mentions the word ‘hope’, what comes to mind? Does it remind you of your childhood and the hope of receiving a specific present at Christmas? Or does it remind you of different traumatic circumstances where you hoped for a different outcome?

Merry Christmas!

I would just like to take the time to wish everyone a merry Christmas! I hope that this is a joyous and relaxing time with family, friends and other special people in your life. I apologise for the lack of recent posting (I too needed a short break), however; be assured that there will be…
