Said you were my E Edward Grey. You watched and said I’m not sure how I feel aboutContinue reading “Of true submission”

What we remember

I’ve made it to my 200th post at body, remember!! When I started this blog two years ago, I had a cracked heart – and an idea to write it back into something whole again. I’ve learnt so much since then. Post by post. Word by word. Revelation by (painful!) revelation. Here’s to another 200, and all the mistakesContinue reading “What we remember”

Nine months ago I wrote a piece called I know you don’t watch me walk away. To quote Adele, this one was me kind of onContinue reading “I know you don’t watch me walk away (imagined)”

The art of beginning

This weekend I am celebrating the three month anniversary of my blog.
