Black Lives Matter

There are many, many people who can speak much more eloquently about racial injustice than I ever could. I write this reflection from the perspective of an Irish person who cannot claim to understand every nuance of the U.S. situation, though I know well that recent events there have sparked a worldwide conversation about racial…

A Reflection for Those Who See Humour in All Things

You were always the class clown. On dull mornings, your friends knew you would be there with a laugh, a smile, or a wayward remark that would likely be met by a swift reprimand. You injected every moment with a delicious whiff of mischief, and spent many drab hours sitting outside the principal’s office for…

The Twin Pairs: My First Six Pre-made Paintings to Go on Sale

I have an update to share with regard to my artwork! 😊 Since last autumn, I have specialised in creating custom-made paintings, which involves tuning into a particular situation that someone is experiencing in their lives, then bringing through a visual representation of the energies at play. I will absolutely continue doing that, because the…

A Reflection for the Warrior Souls

Justice. Equity. Integrity. They are the causes that speak deeply to your heart. Your inner fire burns deep, scorching heavily encrusted layers of suppression that have held many captive to their own fears. When crisis calls, you are the ones who march before the vulnerable. You venture forth, sword and shield in hand. You plant…

A Reflection For Introverts and Gentle Ones

You, gentle ones, may be surrounded by hard-hitting truth tellers, feisty freedom fighters, and overall badasses whose courage takes your breath away. You are amazed by their strength. You are awed by their ability to stride into controversial waters: how they willingly stick their heads above the parapet and boldly proclaim their truths. You see…

‘Fall Away’ (a Poem)

Step back Into dreams That have fallen away. Those hopes that held your heart Are calling again: Louder now, A piercing note that cuts through the din.

‘The Dance’ – The Fifth Instalment of Vosloo’s Video Series

Dancing is a metaphor that Vosloo has used a lot, in my experience of working with him. He uses it to describe the balance between many things: rationality and intuition, night and day, “leaders” and “the led”, and the balance of energies and dynamics between people. One strong theme that emerged in this video was…

‘Heart Sparks’ (a Poem and a Painting)

Show her the embers Of a fire you tended long ago When your hand enfolded hers And you reached out to catch a spark. How your eyes danced With the thrill of the game. Show her the tendrils Of finely combed hair That fell across your faces When you spun through whirling leaves And sang…

‘They Hold On’ (a Poem)

They are an eye Glimpsed through twitching curtains Grasping for a freedom They have never found. They are words you may remember As a force that held you back: That called you limited And said, ‘no further can you go Than the wall of your own fears.’ Now your wings unfurl Yet they hold on…

‘You Are Still Here’ (a Poem)

Above the screeching vortex of argument, Songs still shimmer: Heard faintly, through muffling clouds Yet bolder by the day. You still know the horizon. Quiet words of kindness Hum through the restless din. Children call out friends’ names Run through the streets with dogs in tow: The soft pat of paws against stone. And you…
