My Walk Home

People Rush too much in the Big City

Rushing everywhere! trying to get home, buy shopping, people look so very stressed sometimes. Friday I walked through the big city I work in. I often wish to leave the big city for solace. I was determined that day to achieve all the things I have said to my students… Please sometimes STOP and notice things around you! Experience this wonderful diverse city.  I normally walk a little, then get on a bus/train to take me home. Missing obviously the buzz of the city, the aromas of the foods, the bright colours of the many shops and the little hidden parks, along the way. Beautiful colours of materials and architecture.

There are also so many buildings with amazing tea and coffee shops, with the most amazing cakes. The very older buildings have the most ornate and beautiful sculptures… Bringing old and new a exciting place to visit. My favourite of all places in Birmingham, is the canal network, with its many restaurants, bars and winding paths. Little gems of nature along the way. It is for me a ‘quiet zone’.

Beautiful rainbows of colours

magical melodies of sounds of people 

rushing by, with many bags in hand

culturally diverse and inspirational 

wonderful aroma’s of diverse foods

Wonderful togetherness 

Birmingham my home town

My first beautiful wonder of nature, that made me smile was a beautiful lone flowerbed, just outside of work. Often ignored by so many. Many small areas have been given seeds of wildflowers, to attract bees into the city. Poppies festoon around flowerbeds and ‘pop up’ from cracks in the roads… beautiful lone little weeds and flowers, amongst concreate and man-made city chaos and the overwhelming fumes of transport.


I took this photograph of a little tiny corner by where I work. The Poppies were beautiful 


I will continue to discover the little beautiful things in my rushed city. Such as our beautiful gardens in our amazing library, that I love so very much. Brummie and Proud!!

Thought of the day, What have you achieved this week?

What have you achieved this week?

I sat on the bus, while reading positive text in a book. It reminded me about a conversation at work, with a student. The conversation encouraged thinking positively about what they had achieved that week. I was trying to explain how important it was to feel positive about themselves. On reflection the student answered with little words, so I helped by explaining how they had helped me earlier on in the week. I then left work, on a very busy bus, and suddenly thought about our conversation. Was I needed? What did I do this week, but on reflection… when I remembered…

I laughed         I cried         I made someone smile         I supported       I wrote two poems

I helped someone who was very upset       I cooked         I gave someone advice

my idea helped someone    I was kind     I made someone laugh out loud

I created       I was Livi         I meditated        I worried about someone who was ill

At the end of the week I was actually really needed, and I found that I had much respect, this made me feel wanted. On reflection that made me feel really good about myself.





New Year… Life fulfilment, Parsnips and Bread

New Year… Life Fulfilment, Parsnips and Bread

2018 Happy New Year… Parsnips and Bread
Enlighten my being
My soul touched
Be PROUD of your presence
Be ADORED with comfort and harmony.
Remove the dirt from your hand

And form collections of sparkling diamonds
That fall gently onto the ground below
Energising towers of beauty, life fulfilment
Parsnips and bread

and be Free to be Just YOU

I Am Free

Wonderful textures
of beautiful hypnotic sounds
make me feel so happy

I long to sit still forever
And soak your continuous free giving calm

I love to go for a walk, in order to clear my mind of all the swirling things, that form in our minds. Fresh air is good for our wellbeing, our creativity and our happiness
