Walking towards the edge of the Avon viaduct, my easy stroll along the canal has just changed its tune into gripping fear.

Last time I walked over here my fear of heights hit me like a sledgehammer and my sister had to take my arm to walk to the other side. I made the m...

The theme of creativity has been swirling around in my awareness for several months now. It started as a question which kept popping up: “Where did my creativity go?”.

While out walking this morning, I passed a lady going the other way and immediately recognised her face, yet couldn't quite place her.

In a split second my visual memory was overtaken by a familiar scent. And then it dawned on me - she was my playgroup teacher. She stil...
