I often find myself teetering between “this is amazing I love this” and “this is bullshit what’s the point”. Not about anything in particular, but about most things. The truth is, whichever side I give energy to is the one that will thrive. But this isn’t about choosing one side or another, it’s about admitting to both and watching them be. Ram Dass says “When you witness a dark thought … you witness it, and love it … the witness is part of the soul, and the soul loves everything.” Easy!⁣
⁣
Most dark thoughts are the voice of my damn ego. What I want and don’t have. What I don’t have compared to someone else. What I think people don’t like about me. The small stuff that pretends to be big, like Dwight Schrute in a sumo costume. But there’s something deeper and truer that’s eternally within us. It’s that quiet constant inner voice. That voice says “this is amazing, I love this”. It’s pure wonder, it’s amazement, it’s love. The best part is, we don’t even have to teach ourselves how to use it. We only need to learn the difference between it and our ego. That’s where it gets tricky. The ego is a master of disguise, and is really good at playing the part of this truth.⁣
⁣
When you ask yourself what you want, you may hear two answers. A loud one that says you want to run away, you want a nice home, a nice car, a lover, a cushy bank account, a slew of beers or toys or games. The other says you want to accept, to love, simply to witness.⁣
⁣
I’m still figuring this stuff out, I’ll always be. I’ve been writing and re-writing this message for months, actually. I’ve been tongue tied, blocked. I must have two dozen drafts that make me want to bury my head in the sand and never speak again. But that’s the ego afraid of being wrong, or judged. I think this message is one of truth, and I want to be closer to that. #momomeditations

Whilst the old kitchen was transformed into a second bathroom and laundry, the original beach shack remains mostly unchanged. It was tidied up and repainted, so that the charm and character of the post war shack was retained.

One of the things I love about my job is the interaction collaboration with inspirational creatives .. increasingly clients become friends and friends clients ..the understanding of each other’s style:visual aspirations leads to successful lasting collaboration 
One such character is Jason Maclean @studiomaclean whom I first met with a commission from @wallpapermag in 2006 to shoot his house that just so happened to be around the corner from my own 
The house is a mid-century gem nestled in between Camberwell grove and Grove lane , It’s also one of the first houses @modernhouse sold 
13 years on Jason and @jennyrosemaclean have reworked the space and I’ve spent many an enjoyable day munching on Jaffa cakes and  capturing new views

"You don't inherit place. You commit to it. You take its meanings upon yourself: its history, its rhythms, its defining character. When you make a place home - an affectionately regarded range of ground from which you take identity ( literally your "home ground") - you are taking upon yourself an active duty of care." ~Dr Pete Hay, Defending Wild Lands (in Endangered, Tasmania's Wild Places) #artofvisuals #master shots #ourplanetdaily #jaw dropping shotz #worldtravelscapes #ig naturelovers #earthofficial #special shots

If each could learn as well as I 
To profit by my pain,
There’s ne’er a man beneath the sky
Would ever love again.

In memory of my beautiful friend, my mentor and work colleague who will be greatly missed by so many. Today we said goodbye.  We smiled, we laughed and we cried with the memories and the stories told.

I met you as a nervous grad nurse when i first left uni and you were my staff development nurse.  Without a doubt I wouldn’t be half the nurse i am today without having shared the journey with you. No matter what different paths our nursing careers took us you were always there to offer support, guidance and a listening ear.  I am ever so grateful that our paths crossed again and we had the chance to work along side each other these last 6 months. 
Whether it be my photographic adventures, or roadtrips or within the nursing field you always encouraged me and listened with great interest with what was coming next.  Your passion for life and living it to the fullest is something I will never forget. 
I will miss your beautiful smile and your caring heart.  RIP my friend you will never be forgotten. #horrocksbeach #RIP #sunsets #gonebutnotforgotten #wabeaches
