Five Minute Friday... (OK, so its Sunday!)

5 minutes to write...


we go...

time is passing by and I watch it very little. I dont mark its passing in any great way. I record some moments in memory and in notes and pictures, but who knows which are the most important until you remember or forget.
There are few times that I am truly here. My life is patterened by the passing of students and school terms, but as fast as one passes the next comes.
This month I will be 40. My sister will be 30, my grandmother 90, my aunt turned 60 and my mother got her wish to be 65...
Again, I am not here...
Right now I am trying to type in stream of conciousness but am aware of all of the sounds around me.
After my hysterectamy I sought counselling with my partner. It changed us both. We learned to set aside time together and live in that moment. The undestanding of sensualness and sensuality that comes from the sharing of a smile, a sound, a smell, a touch. There is so much more than what we simply perceive.
I do not know what I truly believe, but right now, right here, I am thankfull for waht I have.



  1. Stopping by from Five Minute Friday, that I didn't get to until Sunday, either. :-) I hope that you can have more of those moments that you are truly present, wherever you might be and whatever you might be doing. Recognizing and being thankful for what we have, is a good step towards knowing what we value, which in turn helps us to solidify what we believe. :-) Have a great week!

    1. Thankyou Nikki! I am off to Nottingham for a few days with my man so hopefully we will have some 'us' time.

  2. It was so good to meet you on Saturday! Both Sue and I were mightily impressed by your BOM, but I can't find one anywhere, and when I tried the Prima main site, it said you have to have a minimum order of $1000 outside the US! Can you suggest anywhere we could find the basic book to start with? Regards, Penelope (Hope you're having a good break!)

  3. I truly love your mind, the way you think and to be able to put that into words is an art itself. I love the depth of this post... living in the now is everything and feeling grateful comes with being present. Thank you for sharing this, I found you on NOBH!
