Write yourself a letter...

I start again. Drawing Luke Hockley.

I start again. Drawing Luke Hockley.

Welcome to 2018.

I love the first day of the year. I know we all just made it up...but I like that we all decided this is the day we start again.

I wrote today's Dear Self about it, have a read...

When I woke up this morning and thought about writing my Dear Self letter I also thought about all of you and wondered wether you would like to write yourselves a letter as well.

What do you think? 

This is an open invitation to write yourself a letter as a way of welcoming the new year. I find gentle self reflection is one of the  most powerful tools that supports me to live the kind of life I want to live.

Writing a Dear Self letter is very simple. Grab your computer, or device, or pen and paper and write the words Dear Self...and then just write whatever comes to you. You can also draw yourself a picture if you like.

Don't think about it too much. No need to be profound or grand. I like to ask myself..."What do I need to hear today?"

You are writing the letter to you, so whatever you write will be perfect.

Once you are finished, if you would like to share your letter with someone, feel free to email them to me (Hint - join my mailing list and you will get my email address). I'd love to read them. Let me know if you are ok for me to share them (which may or may not happen!) otherwise they will just stay between us.



The rose mystery.


Some beautiful person dropped these off at my studio yesterday! 

I wasn't here...apparently they are from Genevieve but we may have that name wrong. 

Can anyone shine some light on this mystery? I'd love to be able to say thank you to whomever it was.  



Ode to Paulus Berensohn


I found myself with clay in my hands again the other day. Followong along with what the clay was asking of me.

I realised I was creating in response to what I had learnt from the documentary To spring from the hand.

The eventual object is less important than the process. 

I learnt recently that we lost the great Paulus Berensohn who the documentary is about. 

I wish I'd had the chance to meet him.
