About me



 This is me wearing my favourite tv glasses (that I also wear for distraction purposes, like when I’m not wearing any make-up which, as I spend a lot of the time in front of a screen is pretty much a lot of the time). Anyway, I’m in front of my favourite wall in the house which I painted free hand in gold in the wild bursts of a creative moment so I love it for two reasons: not only because I like the home-made but still patterned gold look on white but also because of the fact that it can only be seen as my first effort at stepping out and back into my world after seven years of trying to live up to being a Swiss stay at home Mum which anyone who knows me would have told me was a whacky thing to even think could work ??
(Right, so the kids loved the wall but my man may have felt a slight shock of surprise when he came home that day! – maybe he sort of got used to the Swiss housewife thing? – Though he swears he loves it now.. 🙂 )

..passionate bath enthusiast

which is where I do a lot of my thinking and meditating,

brainstorming and dreaming

and, yes alright, nails&hair too, occasionally –

and, did I mention dreaming?

It’s where I dream about Karin’s appletree = mobile but ‘always there’ place

under the sky that appears whenever I need a break,

for creative moments,

a place that connects me to the past, rooted in all it stands for

but at the same time it holds all sorts of promises

for a sweet and succulent bite of the future

who..

decided it was time to quit dreaming and become a writer

– now that my kids are well out of their nappies and into their teens –

it’s a place in time that our journeys seem to be crossing

(though to borrow a cliché, their oysters might be a lot larger than mine,

but still, I think, why not?)

Indeed,

why not?

Or, in the words of the American poet

Marie Ponsot

(who had seven children and still got an award-winning amount of poems done):

“I think things that we really long to do […] are what we ought to spend a lot of time on. Why not?”

You can’t really say it enough, right?

Why not?

 

..first novel writer

who would like to share the process with you of grabbing dreams that have been set aside,

over and over again, passions that have been quashed

(for whatever reason),

of muses that have lain asleep for felt a hundred years

(I know, I’m mixing genres here but you get my point)

over and over again, and making it work, getting back on track, or dusting off forgotten tunes:

“Groove is in the heart”

as Deee-Lite put it, and no goat can lick that away..

??

(ok, so that does sound a bit strange.

It’s translated. Literally.

It’s a Swiss thing.

I live in Switzerland. It sort of rubs off in one way or another, but that’s another story)

first..

LET’s start at the beginning.

– actually it’s the third beginning, but who’s counting –

Welcome to my blog on picking up forgotten dreams and un-procrastinating.

– and no, that’s not a word but I’m making it one –

it’s all about getting things done in a way that works for me (and hopefully for you) – so read on!

I’m really glad you could make it 🙂
