Walking out to a field in his backyard I was shown rabbits, a chicken house, a greenhouse (šiltnamis -warm house), a seat for watching the sunset (which we did whilst it rained later that day) and stretching out almost as far as the eye could see, was wheat. In between it all was a strawberry patch […]Read more "Rocks in the soil."
Boy walks into a room he has known well but hasn’t visited in a while and makes everyone laugh. Its odd. Because he’s tried that joke in other rooms and it didn’t go down so well. Boy very easily walks the line between offence and polite observation and again… laughter. Odd. Walking down the street […]Read more "Home?"
Often I feel like my life is a scene out of the movie “Yes man” because I just say yes to things and end up having the greatest adventures. So the latest adventure has returned me home at 4:30am after dancing in the middle of nowhere with lovely people from all over Europe for over […]Read more "We don’t have to step on each others feet."

The same naming has been done by thousands of people for […]Read more "Sacred Spaces"
Rebellion always starts in the undisciplined whispers of the jilted. Or the hopeful and liberated minds of the free. The jealous saw the future as hard and unwanted. They wanted the ease of their past lives, forgetting the oppression, forgetting the generations who had hoped to be in their shoes. But because they couldn’t get back, […]Read more "numbers A"
For 19 years I lived in the same house, with the same people (minus siblings who slowly moved away) and with largely similar life rhythms, in similar cultural circles. I then lived a further 5 years in that city, 4 in another city in Australia, after which I left. For 7 years I have mostly […]Read more "Transitional Withdraw"
An unfinished thought. I have been thinking and reading a few things of late that have made it difficult to dream of where I was going. Like i was on a road trip, determined to make it to a specific place to enjoy a forest and suddenly… all plans changed. We ran out of petrol, […]Read more "In the middle of the middle just sitting."
“We seek and we pray for our return to that time when, being united, we spoke the same things and there was no schism between us.”- Mark of Ephesus “Jesus became what we are that He might make us what he is.” – Athanasius The trinity.
