Circle of life

Lifestyle, My Journey
Circle of life Living on the east coast, I've grown accustomed to the beauty of a sunrise over the sea. That time of day - when the sun, sky and sea engage in a game of tag, showing off as they throw out a myriad dazzling colours for our eyes to feast on - is when I feel a deep sense of peace and spirituality. This year I got to experience a number of sunsets over the sea. After long, hot, hazy days, the soothing sight of calm seas and a setting sun is a calming experience. It's a circle-of-life kind of moment - bringing me back to the beginning, encouraging me to start again, assuring me that to move forward is not about forgetting but rather about accepting.

Lifestyle
Between my partner and I, we have managed to murder every indoor plant we’ve owned. Sigh... it's our cross to bear. But somehow, every year the three orchids we have reward us with an explosive display of colour and beauty. How such delicate plants manage to survive where the hardiest do not, amazes us. So this year, I've decided to share them with you.
