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 […]

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 […]

My 2013 Bucket list, A new continuity.

An Anti-Marmite Adventure

On wednesday I got on a bus, on a warm breezy day, in a sun dress. I travelled to the nearest big town and from there to a beautiful town barely bigger than a high street but brimming with colour and life. I was there for work, which largely isn’t worth my time, I’m a […]

The Marina

The water a murky pastel blue, I looked down and longed to just jump. The boats docked from far away places, the familiar welsh flag adorned one of them and reminded me of home. The seagulls swarmed in gangs around us, and the breeze swept us back towards the land. It was beautiful by the […]
