a creative life.

I want to create. I want to create and not care about the end product. I want to draw something and be happy without minding what it looks like. I want to play guitar and not care if someone is listening. I want to sing with joy. I want to dance in freedom. I want […]

Fairytales vs. Reality

As a kid, I loved fairytales. I loved the Disney Princess movies, I loved buying big books of fairytales and nursery rhymes, even if I already had a copy of them. There was something special in opening up a hardcover book that held different illustrations for the classic stories. Some books I bought second hand, […]

Tsunami / Poem

The tsunami came with a warning, The waning of the sea. Pulled back, The ocean bed bared like my scars. How to outrun such a magnetising beast, Not strong enough to look from its eyes. Water giving and taking away, Hold your breath, Save it for a rainy day. Heart fell onto the sandy floor, […]

March Plants

You know what brings me joy? Plants. You know what might possibly bring you joy? Plants. I thought we’d do something a bit different from my normal writing and look at a bunch of plant photos I took this month. It’s never a bad thing to be reminded of the beautiful, simple things that God […]

Write in Childhood

I love reflecting on childhood. I love stories of childhood and the way they impact us all. I love how, even though childhoods contain both good and bad, we can all look back and reminisce on what once was. While I love romance and adventure and the beautiful every day of adulthood, I love novels […]

March 2020 Reading

March wasn’t the biggest reading month, but I’m still happily making my way through a few books I’ve been reading for a while. One of which being The Woman in White (Wilkie Collins). I’m really enjoying it, but am only getting through a few pages a day due to the small font and heavy writing […]

Change / Poem

I wrote this poem during a recent quiet time with God. Usually when I write creatively about Jesus I won’t post it on my blog because it’s not neat, it’s just words that aren’t edited or properly ordered. But today I thought I may as well. We’re all human, and things get a little messy […]

a perfect life.

I want to write something really good. I want to write all the words that mean something important. I want to publish all the words that mean something important. I want to write about everything that means something to me. I want to write about everything that means something to God. I want a room […]
