My Summer Bucket List: A Seasonal Separation

I’m breaking the mold. Normally I’d bring you poetry or a story or some perhaps lightly too-subverted philosophy hidden in shoes. But today is not only Sunday but exactly a week before I get to go home for the summer!  I haven’t started packing, in fact, right now I’m sat with my elbows resting on […]

Even Though I’m A Woman

I’m missed those faces, even though I’m a woman now. I walked away because I love you more when I miss you, but no less I love you. No luggage weighing me down, its presence halted by the sunset from a duller day my steps fleed from. My mind over filled, a release of words […]

Faith of a different kind

I have been under the weather for over a week, feeling a little disheartened by the world and a little more than let down by some of the people I care about the most. Before I explain more I want to tell you that this story has a happy ending. Over the last couple of […]

” It’s like forgetting the words to your favourite song.”

My Whistle-stop Italian trip. Part 1- Rome and The Monastery

I worked all summer, I worked nearly everyday and between a summer romance and my utter drive to exercise and fast; I became prepared for the adventure I was about to find. On the 30th August 2013 I got on my very first plane, all by myself and saw the clouds in all there beauty…And […]

What do you sacrifice for love?

I have the most wonderful friends, but a constant thirst I can’t quench. I live in the smallest of places and love is a constant talking point, but those who don’t find someone start to lose that love. I have seen it happen to those around me who have just given up or moved away, […]
