Last Post - New Writing of the Month for May ~ Intimate Snowflakes



EVE (looking at the writing)

(smiling) It says ‘I wish I had the courage to believe in my dreams’ ... (smiling at Izzy) ... I have come full circle ...


IZZY

However far away they seem - however steeped in magic – mystery - or fallen red leaves and scattered with well meaning madness they are - they are yours and yours only and they should be as precious to you as old black and white photos and childhood keepsakes.

Put them carefully away and remember them with joy - love them with honesty and keep them close to your fingertips.



Hi everyone

It's May and this will be my last blog post for the foreseeable future. 

I am taking maternity leave lol, I have just a few weeks left before my due date - 5 weeks and 3 days exactly according to my pregnancy app - scary stuff. She is growing well. kicking like mad and enjoys getting hiccups! We are all so excited to meet her.

I have shared the last lines of our (me and my Mum's) play 'Dragonflies in Amber' - all about dreaming and that dreams should be important to all of us. We wanted the play to be like having a celestial experience for the audience.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated since I don't know when I'll be back, or if I'll be back. This blog has been up and running for 4 years now, my first post was back on 30th April 2012! How things have changed! I have to admit a lot of the time I have felt I've been talking to the wall but I would like to thank all those that have commented and interacted with me, thank you for taking the time to read my work! :)


The synopsis for the play is;

‘Dragonflies in Amber’  explores the inner world of a woman named Eve.  It sets out to question her beliefs on love, hate, desires, longings, childhood events, hidden talents, confidence etc. through the world of lucid dreaming. When we are young we are naturally connected with our emotional and spiritual selves but slowly lose touch with this aspect of ourselves as we ‘grow up’. This play questions what women may have lost by ignoring their inner world.

The play is set over five nights dreaming and each dream sequence (scene) is a ‘vignette’.  Eve is looking to reconnect with her dreaming to find meaning to her life once more. As she meets up again with Izzy, her co-creator of reality in the Dreamworld, she finds that there are many dark secrets and forgotten traumas that she must finally face and understand in order to bring vitality back into her life, therefore finding meaning and purpose once more.


It's a very spiritual play with some beautiful lines that really make you think (even if I do say so myself) which brings me on to happily say that two of my poems are in the latest issue of 'Kindred Spirit' magazine. They are available to buy from their stand at the huge Mind, Body, Spirit Festival in London this weekend (29th-2nd) as well as specialist stockists :) I'm delighted to be included. 

I've also had two of my flash fiction pieces featured on 'Three Drops from a Cauldron' - 'Old Norse' and 'Old Perfume' - it's a lovely website and I'm really happy to be a part of it.

Since this is my last post I have to include another link to my ebook 'Alchemy' - it was such a joy to write and put together. I would like to give another heartfelt thank you to everyone who has read, loved and given 'Alchemy' a fantastic review! It has meant so much to this humble little indie author :)

So it's goodbye for now, I have to get all the last minute baby things and prepare to meet my little girl! 



Have a wonderful Bank Holiday Weekend

  1. Beautiful! Best of luck with your birth as well. Somehow my little one is 4 years old but her first day is still in my mind. With her came a wave of creative energy - I wish the same for you as you experience the inevitable life shift to come.

    1. Hi Jennifer, thank you :) How lovely to hear the birth of your daughter sparked your creativity, babies are magical. Also thank you for the best wishes - I am sorry for the late reply but my little one arrived the other day and it's all been a bit of a blur since. We have a beautiful newborn son and I am besotted with him! According to a member of the c-section team this is only the second time in 14 years she has witnessed someone come in expecting one sex and leaving with another!! lol
