The sun is out but I have to stay in. A black pen and a white piece of paper await my creative side to begin. There is no noise here inside my house.
I sit still while the chaos continues outside. I lift the black pen and I start to write. My body is calm and these four walls have been my safe space.
I have heat, clean water and fresh food in this place. This place I call, my home. How luc...

Meditate. Think. Relax. Breathe.
Take a minute to stop, think and react.
We all need a little headspace.
Look after your mind.
But wait, don't forget, there's work to do too.
Make time for yourself.
Be sure to relax.
Just remember to reply, be present and on task.
Model to the children, be the best you can be.
Don't let them see if you're down, or feeling stressed.

Our bodies borrowed from the Universe

The realisations that a bit of mindfully living in the moment can bring....
It's magical that we taste
There's magic in a touch

Remarkable drops of rain
The miracle of each day
That we've awoke again
The greatness of those blades of grass
That grow beneath our feet...

Here I go, take a step onto the stage called life.
Finally awake for the first time. Fully present here and now. What a gift.
Hold onto your handlebars.
I take this breath like dope.
Into my blood, down into the depths of my being.
Where being is seeing.
Like a probe searching for answers.
My feet carry my swiftly as I walk.
Rooted firmly in the earth, I am strong.

Scream lung deep into a brown paper bag,
Let the pain poor free to drain the bulls red rag,
I don’t hear where the devil lives for the rustling distorts,
I know you’re hurting but your hand is moving and I can’t see all the warts,
Until you choose - until you can,
Until your soul finds the strength to trust a man,
I will hear words only spoken in different tongue,
