Reintroduction / Poem

Reintroduction (written by Sarah Bennett) I am no longer scared to tell strangers that my dream is to be an author, Only the people who know me well enough to say my writing is not that good. Dreams are never big enough for those I’ve yet to learn the names of but crowd the space […]

Eight / Poem

Eight (Written by Sarah Bennett) I am so many dreams poured together, Keeping me alive. The wanting is woven into my name. I am confusion and love and what is often called naïve But is actually compassion. Forgiveness. I have been given grace so how can I not pass it on? I am the drought […]

Dawn / Poem

Dawn (Written by Sarah Bennett) There is a song she sings And it sounds like searching for the dawn. She is alone, awaiting the sun. The light is a whisper And it sounds like God’s arms welcoming her home. I do not say it enough But with God there is hope. My favourite poems are […]

Conclusions and Closure

Someone recently told me that I’m good at conclusions, or something like that. I’m good at concluding things. I wouldn’t disagree, but I think sometimes I go too far in cutting things off before their time, for the sake of moving on. Whenever I go away on holidays, the last morning is always wobbly. Knowing […]

January 2021 Reading

This month I read five novels and one non-fiction, and most novels were quick reads, starting off the year well. My first completed read of 2021 was The Godmothers (Monica McInerney), which I gave 4 of 5 stars, though a low, could-change-my-mind type of 4. This story is about Eliza, and the journey she goes […]

trying to write.

I’ve been feeling unmotivated since the start of January. Not about exercise, as discussed in my last post, but towards creativity. My writing. I have been working and studying a lot, so I’m trying not to be too hard on myself about it, but even this blog has been a game of catch-up when I […]

My Focus of 2021

2021 is the year of focusing on my health. Which, when put like that, sounds kind of boring. But honestly, I’m excited. I wouldn’t say I’ve ever neglected my wellbeing, unless you consider neglect to be convincing my mum that a dentist appointment doesn’t have to be every six months. But it hasn’t been much […]

December 2020 Reading

I was pouring my crème brulee tea (honestly one the best things I’ve ever smelled) when I realized I never blogged about my December reads. So here they are. Please picture them wrapped up in a nice bow as though I’m giving you a late Christmas present. December was a bit of a strange month […]
