Accent Love

1. Say 'poz' to me* Editors note: This is TOTALLY a love post, not a mocker. I can't help the way I talk. Over the years I've taken classes with lots of international visiting teachers and teachers who now live here but hail from other parts of the world. They've always immediately made me happy… Read More

The Gifts Of Age

1. My spot If you’ve watched some of my recent Insta stories I know you’ll have been desperately worried as to the outcome of a terrible new zit that has planted itself right on the top of my lip bow, smack bang in the middle. I’ve been slathering it with Clearasil (no nasties in that… Read More

Yoga, Juice And Fifty-Plus

I've got a few longer essay-type blog posts sitting unfinished (also mostly not started). But I've come to miss that punishing daily schedule of my fifty posts in fifty days. Not the ACTUAL act of posting every single day, just the regularity of chatting without a particular topic. So. Here I am again. Let's go… Read More

1. Well, we're not laughing yet but I'm holding space for it There I was casually strolling in the gate, still in my yoga bubble, when I met the fabulous T who so far has welcomed me later than expected having missed the flight from NY to LA, saved me from being locked in AND… Read More

Well, not exactly vital to just Venice but let's go with it, it sounds important. 1. Sadly the number of addicts I've seen on a daily have far outweighed what I encountered in New York. There are some hardcore, terribly sick people who are also probably suffering from mental health issues and the age range… Read More

La La Land But Without The Singing

A little more bloggity blog from my trip as after patting myself on the back for completing 50/50 I realised if I ever want to post again consistency is key. While I'm away I'll stick to the 'ol one, two, three so I don't get caught up in epic essays and remember this is not… Read More

50/50 Ta, Da

1. Here's what's happened so far I was born, 6 pounds 2, and then went to school. At some point I experimented with a fringe which cost me a week off school due to trauma. Journalism, travel, Uni, marriage, baby and yoga. At many points I experimented with some variation of a mid-life crisis. Today… Read More

49/50 Ch, Ch, Changes

1. Completely changed my mind about turning fifty What a ridiculous idea! It's possible I might not be as accepting of this situation as I first thought. There's still so much I've not done that surely as an adult I should have achieved by now. Is it too late for me to become a domestic… Read More

1. Chop, chop Each salad I’ve bought has been thoroughly chopped. The blade brought down, back and forth, fast and furious, annihilating those cherry toms and grated carrot into almost-mush. Why so much chop, chop? It’s veering on soup territory and I feel quite strongly about that. Lines snake out the doorways and every order… Read More

47/50 Time Travel

1. It's 11.30pm again I have no idea how this happened. One minute I was sleeping off jet lag through the majority of the day, then I woke up, limped around Harlem's other side for bit and visited my friendly Bodega (yeah, talking like a local, what of it?) where I was unintentionally part of… Read More
