Here we are again. The Liebster Award nominated by my Lovely blogger friend Ria – The Zinormous Canvas.

When I read Ria posts, I get a sense of softness and enlightenment from someone so young. Her site is filled with poetry and stories about meaningful matters. She is also a wonderful Sketch Artist and I have added some of her sketches to this blog. So, I encourage all my readers to visit Rias site The Zinormous Canvas and be inspired.

Why am I passionate about blogging?

I love to write. I write about what moves me at the time, in that moment when the words catch me. I might be driving, walking, working and I have to stop and let the words flow out of my head. I write or record them into my phone. It is almost always poetry in motion.


Ten random facts about myself

  1. I love books
  2. I read at least three books a week (as well as blogs, articles, magazines…)
  3. I collect books and have just over 5000 of them and have read all of them
  4. My library is organised in the Dewey system (Old School)

  6. I collect Art from many different painters
  7. I make small furniture with timber from old houses
  8. I give them away as gifts or presents
  9. I have more shed tools than I have shoes (not unusual for a woman here in NZ)
  10. I love power tools
  11. I thank my lovely Papa for teaching me “Shed Stuff”
