Magical Tidyness

Processed with VSCOcam with c2 preset

I am a convert. I am about one third the way through tidying our house and it is nothing sort of revolutionary in terms of shit-shifting. And when I say shit-shifting I mean that metaphorically and literally. Literally bags of stuff have been moved out, and clean empty spaces have been left. It leaves you with such […]

Banality | Simplicity


I recently participated in 99 Days of Freedom; 99 days with no Facebook. It was surprisingly easy and provoked surprising reactions from some people I know. Now that the 99 days are over, I scan Facebook again, and post to it. I’ve noticed how much of a time vacuum it is. It’s not really a time […]

I write blog posts in my head
