I have writer’s block.

I am a communicator. Full stop. I love anything and everything I can read, listen to and interpret as I wish. Music, books or  even how people talk. I sometimes think I have so many different voices in my head I’m not so sure which one to listen to. The rational me who functions very […]

Hello 2017, we kind of knew you’d be showing up..

… although, at least here in Beijing, you could have done a better entrance than this I believe.. Not really the way you want to start a New Year.

My real life Halloween 

My daughter has decided that being afraid is the new black. It apparently fits all purposes & situations. If it’s not killer clowns it’s Zombies or ghosts. This from a girl who watch people open Shopkin blind bags on YouTube, so we’re not really talking about too much Freddy vs Jason (which by the way […]

Welcome to Jet Lag country. We’ve been expecting you.

The jet lag is real in Beijing, that’s for sure.. I’ve been trying to stay awake throughout the day as I’ve slept approximately 7-8 hrs in the last two days. And in those 48 hours I’ve spent approximately 12 hours on the road. Correction – amongst the clouds… So I turned to music. Thank you to […]
