It’s The Little Things That Count

It's The Little Things That Count

  It isn’t the chair in the living room we tend to trip over. It’s the pair of slippers randomly kicked off and left where we didn’t expect. And in so much of life it isn’t the big things that trip us up, it is the little things that count. How many times we only have […]

Got A Moment?

Got A Moment?

Get one! Just one moment, that’s all it takes. Ok, but how long is a moment? Depends, doesn’t it? When I tell a toddler asking for a snack, ‘just a moment’, it can mean seconds or minutes. (But not longer as a child’s persistence won’t allow for delay!) When said to a border guard as […]

This is my first Colorado autumn. Familiar as I am to the brilliant orange and then red of maples and oaks, to be in […]

The Hungry Harvest

The Hungry Harvest

  There’s been a revolution happening in and around us for a decade, one that has changed more about our lives than we realize. The Food and Water Revolution. Cooking shows of the past decade (in the USA) have taught us ingredients, ways of cooking and thinking about food our generation had not previously known. […]

What If ?

What If ?

  Two little words that pack a powerful punch. At times the punch keeps us awake at night. Sometimes it wearies our minds until we find ourselves tired and afraid. What if what goes around stops instead of comes around? /when-what-goes-around-stops/ ‎ Little words can pack a wallop! Take the word ‘to’. Putting this word where it […]
