I have wandering feet and a curious and inquiring mind. Most of the time I make sense of the chaos in my mind by talking about what I think and feel. By doing so, I gain insight into what I like and dislike, and where I stand on different issues, so I guess that will be the purpose of this blog: to simply make sense of my own thinking!

Malcolm Gladwell in his book Outliers talks about a “10,000 hour rule”: researchers have found 10,000 to be the magical number of hours in which true expertise is reached. The neurologist Daniel Levitin says that “ten thousand hours of practice is required to achieve the level of mastery associated with being a world-class expert – in anything…” Becoming a world-class expert in anything will be quite a challenge to me as I simply cannot stick with the same thing for long enough to give me a fair chance. As a drama teacher I tried to pique the interest of my learners to include history, culture and philosophy, not only to open their minds to possibilities, but also to satisfy my own need to understand, explore and share the many different layers of life and living. Apart from being an avid reader, I have also studied sooji chim (Korean hand acupuncture), reiki, hypnotherapy, and logotherapy. I am an eternal yogi that will study and explore this amazing philosophy for as long as I breathe.

Throughout my life writing has been the cohesive thread holding my interests together like multi-coloured and differently shaped beads that at first glance do not seem to belong together, yet creating and interesting and unique necklace. It is through the magical life of words that my life makes sense and just maybe, one day, I will be blessed enough to reach that magical number.

For now though, join me on my journey of discovery, and allow the magic of words to guide you in awaking the longings and desires of your own soul.
