Sunday Scribblings – Follow

as soon as i saw the prompt this week … i started singing

I’ve got to follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
I’ve got to follow that dream to find the love I need

As a teenager, I was a follower, I did things that if I had my time over, I probably wouldn’t do, but I wanted to be liked and loved, and following the ‘cool kids’ seemed to be the way i could achieve that.

At 16 i followed my heart and left home, again, something I probably wouldn’t do if I had my time over, but not something I regret, as it shaped the woman I was to become. Who knew that  heart so young, didn’t really know what love was.

At 19 I followed my heart, and married the man who was to be my husband.  My heart knew that this was the real thing, that this was a love that would last, and it has, not without it’s ups and downs (many downs), but I always knew my heart knew this was the path I was to follow.

Somewhere in my 30’s, I discovered myself and stopped following others, I discovered I had views of my own, that I had a mind of my own and that I did not need to follow and be one of the pack. These views and beliefs have challenged many others, but I’ve stood by them, and have had people follow ME and my beliefs.

And here I am in my 40’s, still not a follower … still sticking to my beliefs and standing up for those without a voice …. but … still following my heart to be with the man i love 25 years later ….

do you know
understand me
words mean nothing
language is an important thing


I coordinate a language team, 6 different cultures, 9 workers.

I am learning a few words, I am learning what it is like to leave your home because of war, because you dream of a better life, because you have no choice, and end up in a world where people are speaking a way you don’t understand.

I am learning what it is like to be differernt, to be treated so badly because you can’t express yourself clearly, to be attacked because of your race, to have people assume because you are from a certain race you have certain characteristics, certain stereotypes.

I am learning, that language is no barrier if you really want to help, that your actions speak any language

I love my job

Sunday Scribblings – Scary

it is not easy to face my fears
each day is harder than the last
never knowing what it might bring
what terror from the past

each layer that i peel away
reveals more of what i hide
i don’t know that i could deal with this
without you by my side

supporting as each pile mounts up
showing how far i’ve come
the scariest thing though that i know
is that i’ve only just begun …………

{ I am decluttering my house and my life – years of organised hidden clutter that i didn’t realise was weighing me down – this poem just flowed while thinking of the topic}

Sunday Scribblings

Sunday Scribblings – CELEBRATE

Today I don’t feel like celebrating – today is a sad day for me

I saw my daughter off at the airport as she heads back to her life in London. I miss her so much when she is gone – but in the same breath – I know how important this is for her – and how much fun she is having – AND – she will eventually be back !!!

Baby girl ……….

I love you baby girl
