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 […]

Filling / Poem

I think I posted this poem a few months ago, then deleted it, but now it’s back because it’s one of my favourites and I haven’t posted a poem in a little while. You can read here why I posted poems then deleted them and am now reposting some. Filling (written by Sarah Bennett) My […]

let’s talk about not spending money

I look over at the three books I bought at work on Sunday then turn back towards the word document open on my laptop. The one that reads talk about no-spend for next blog post, particularly about not buying any more books until I’ve read the ones I’ve already got. So. Here we are. No-spend. […]

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 […]

Success / Poem

I wrote this poem upon walking around the streets I grew up on, though not the ones I became a grown-up on. The poem doesn’t feel polished, but I thought I’d post it here anyway and give you a Friday read. There is a girl, and she is eleven. She knows what it is to […]

Welcoming the New Year

I’ve gone from one floral journal to another. I wonder what thoughts and emotions and prayers and poems I will capture this year. I wonder what will fill those pages. I wonder when I will return to the journal of 2020, and if I’ll like what I find there. I wonder if 2021 will be […]
