International Women’s Day @ King’s College London

You know the thing; scrolling down emails at work on a Wednesday afternoon, checking to make sure I hadn’t missed anything of vital importance before I go ‘off duty’. Since I work part-time at the HR department at Heythrop College, University of London, I try to make sure my work has a rhythm to it … Continue reading

Writing As a Virtue

According to the acclaimed writer Chinua Achebe, whose book, Home and Exile I just read; to be a writer, you must have a story to tell, the passion to tell it and the perseverence to tell it no matter what. He says that because writing is hard graft, you must persevere through the hard times, … Continue reading

An Evenning With Noah Stewart

It was a brilliantly hot, summer day in London, a rare feature of British weather most of the time, but even more so recently, as I found myself having to wear a coat in May! It was a good reason to be cheerful when the temperature climbed and kept climbing all day, but alas, I … Continue reading

Welcome to New York! – Images By Flashade

It’s Official: Art Makes You Happy!

I went with a few friends to the Untitled Artists’ Fair yesterday.  I had been looking forward to it for weeks and as the weather was lovely on Saturday, I was in no doubt that I would be in for a lovely day out. It started well enough, a lovely service at All Souls, Langham … Continue reading
