The complexity that is me

img_0021

I’m a complex person, we all are.  Our genetic make up is incredible, the way our physical body works, the way our mind has been put together, our individual personalities and emotions. We are complex by design.  There’s a lot we can do to increase our complexity in a positive way, as we learn to […]

A doctor walking past was willing to jump in the cold mud on the bank of the Brisbane river and take over CPR. It’s a pretty incredible story and a truly miraculous series of events. So many people involved in different ways is what makes it so great and of course the fact that our […]

I’m the kind of person that bursts into song when I hear a word that triggers a song I know.  I love it when people join in with me, but sometimes I get strange looks – and that’s ok. The song that I want to belt out when I hear the word silver or spoon […]

There are few movies I know well enough to quote from, but one of them is a ‘Legally Blonde’ quote from the moment Elle wins the court case when she argues, “Exercise gives you endorphins.
