Life Drawing… Therapy?

Every second Friday for the past couple of months, Achim has been rushing home early so that I can go meet 6 random strangers in a small, sunlit room to drink tea and work through issues relating to the body. Group therapy? Well, no. Not technically. But as it turns out… Sort of. I’ve been […]

What’s an Introvert, Really?

Woah guys, woah. I just had a major Aha. I’ve just learned what an introvert really is – I thought I knew! But I didn’t.

Running.

It’s Saturday morning. 9 am. We’re sitting on the floor. I’m washing down a piece of cold pizza, still on the table from last night, with the end of my coffee. I scored the last of the cream. Alida’s nose is a slippery waterfall but it’s been the best night we’ve had in a week or so, with […]

Dressing to feel good

This is not a fashion post, exactly. Or a DIY post. But I am going to talk about clothes. And I am making myself a dress – I started it suddenly and without a pattern at about 10pm the night before last, but it seems to be miraculously working out! Rather, I wanna talk about feeling good in our […]

On Happiness: Savoring the Moment

Hey guys! So… surprise! This is not a post about goal-setting. Here is the thing about goals: They don’t always proceed as expected. One needs contingency plans! What-if, if-then plans. For those times when, oh, you maybe get the flu when you were already not quite exactly on track. Sigh. It’s a work in progress. But let’s […]
