The concept is based on my own introspective journey in life and usually the way I figure out the best way for me. i.e. I have epiphanies which are usually followed by long heartfelt soliloquies. Being introspective and adventurous I keep the child inside, young at heart through infinite curiosity. How? and Why? are constant themes in my life.
I believe in living a full, albeit “brave” life, which I don’t always achieve, but strive to do, which means being pure of heart and seizing the moment. I have chosen the title of a Water Boys song for my pay off line ‘The Whole of the Moon’ as the lyrics embody this perfectly – having deep spiritual symbolism and relevance for me. I want to “hold a rainbow in my hands” – call me romantic maybe even delusional – it’s all good.
My blog is the first step in this direction. I am a magpie of sorts collecting soulful bits and pieces, whether they are objects, photographs, quotes, stamps, paper, bic-a-brac, postcards etc. - items with history, character –that speak to me on a spiritual level. Don’t, however, confuse me with being materialistic. I share a tactile, sensorial life of quiet adoration, with my beautiful twin daughters that continually inspire and teach me. I am an admirer of creation, and live life in a grateful, thankful, humble space.
In the end - I am just a spirit being on a human journey - trying to figure it all out without damaging myself or anyone else in the process.

The self-examination of one’s conscious thoughts and feelings. In psychology, the process of introspection relies exclusively on the purposeful and rational self-observation of one’s mental state; however, introspection is sometimes referenced in a spiritual context as the examination of one’s soul. Introspection is closely related to the philosophical concept of human self-reflection, and is contrasted with extrospection.
