“The Sleeping warrior” Arran.
I am grateful that I live in a country where I have been able to have my two vaccinations against covid19. I know they should help prevent the virus affecting me severely in the future, and that is a great blessing. However, I am also cognisant of the many millions of people in other lands, … Continue reading Comfort and deep sorrow. →
My late husband Colin had epilepsy. It sounds like such a little word, but it had such major consequences. He was unfortunate, in that his epilespy was intractable, and so he would have 4-6 tonic clinic seizures a month, always when he was asleep. A seizure would start with a loud guttural shout, the change … Continue reading Seizures and grace →
It is a beautiful sunny day, a day to reflect on what I am learning. Even with my lack of understanding and weakness, I want to share this to seek to be a blessing to others. It is over three years since my husband died. Foolishly, at this point, I thought this was rock bottom. … Continue reading Support and inspiration on the journey. →
I used to think that once you lost some one you loved, that you were sad for a while, and then felt better. However often, grieving is such a complex process, and can be confusing and circular in form. You often seem to go round in a circle, rather than making tangible progress.

Black clouds and then ethereal beauty. I was fortunate enough to be away for a few days up north. I so appreciated the change from the normal frantic pace of life, to a time of space and light and rest. I was so blessed. The weather was often amazing, but there was a particular day … Continue reading After the rain…… →
Yesterday I travelled north (before the new covid restrictions were announced) and was walking along the streets in the town in which I had newly arrived. All was going well till splat, and a present arrived from a passing seagull. So there I was, in the middle of the street, trying to remove bird splatter … Continue reading The shenanigans of seagulls. →
In recent weeks, I have been mulling over the power of telling your story. It is perhaps a bit of a cliche, but there is something that is cathartic about trying to put something you gave experienced into words. It helps you to reinterpret the significance of what happened, and to understand it in a … Continue reading The power of telling our story. →
There are just so many anniversaries in life. Just when you have worked your way through one, along comes a other. Today is three years to the day since Colin’s funeral. Some of the memories are still so vivid, the people who came, the sound of the singing, the positioning of the coffin. My son … Continue reading Medication in the sock drawer. →
Am so grateful for the glorious weather, and the chance to travel early this morning to Fintry Bay in Millport. It was so very peaceful. As a result of all the restrictions I haven’t been across for over 6 months. Even just getting on the ferry was emotional, the excitement of being on the island … Continue reading Healing memories. →
Today is the 3rd anniversary of my husband’s death. Somehow I thought that things would be easier. I have so much to be thankful for, but it is still a time of deep sorrow and difficult memories. My husband was invalided out of military service because of a blow to the head which resulted in … Continue reading Rays of light in times of heartache. →
