#WordlessWednesday #SixWordStories ‘The search for peace starts within.’


This photograph doesn’t really do justice to the beauty I saw when I took the picture.

The stupa is beautiful, as is the Mediterranean Sea and sky in the background, as well as the tropical vegetation, yet however much beautiful stimulation my mind receives, in the end, it’s when I close my eyes, breathe  and look inside that I can find peace, within myself.


White and gold on blue

Now close your eyes and breathe

What is it you see?

#SixWordSaturday Plot your novel, not your life! #SixWordStories

It’s my first time taking part in #SixWordSaturday. Thank you Debbie at Travel with Intent  for hosting and I hope to gradually meet the other participants.

Six Word Saturday seems to be a good and concise way of summing  up the week with six words in the title of the post, and a post with a round up of the week that’s passed.

Now and again, I’ll be adding #SixWordStories to the mix, if I can manage a phrase, or story, with the six words.

In my case I’ll be adding a few, perhaps six, sentences, and a few, perhaps six, photos!

I’ll try to keep it short and pretty!


It’s a holiday week for me, so instead of teaching, I started off plotting my new novel, which was getting out of hand at 22,000 words and no plan!

Then we were able to get away to a fairly secluded beach, in Estepona, for a short break.

I planned the holiday, but I didn’t know exactly what would happen once I arrived. The first surprise was a quiet beach…

…and a lovely Beach Bar for breakfast and lunch!

I was lucky enough to have three of my favourite ladies for company; one of my best friends, Anna, her lovely daughter, Zara, and my daughter.

I was also able to watch two of my grandchildren splashing around the seaside!  


The most beautiful moments in life are unplanned. Let them happen.

It’s been a wonderful week. Back to work on Monday, batteries recharged!

I’ll be back to the beach for a few days in May, fingers crossed!

How was your Easter break?    

Do you plot your novels?

Do you plot your lives?

#SilentSunday #Sixwordstory #sixwordstories If Life Deals You Oranges, Enjoy!


Sometimes life deals us sour lemons, and others we’re lucky enough to get sweet oranges, so let’s enjoy those wonderful moments and allow ourselves to recharge our batteries and embrace happiness. Perhaps next weeks’ lemons will be sweet, too!

I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday.

Thank you for being there 🙂

My camera picked up these beautiful early spring flowers yesterday, just for you… 

#SilentSunday #Sixwordstories


Seen last night as I looked out of the window from my writing desk. A fleeting and wonderful moment I managed to capture, for us.


Happy Sunday morning!

Thank you all for being there, inspiring me to read, to write, to think, to plan, to look forward with joy, to look back and reassess, to never give up…

Thank you my friends, followers and likers, those who drop by occasionally and those who are always there.

For those whose eyes I can see and whose hands I can touch.

For those whose minds I can hear and whose thoughts I can feel.

I wish you all back the warmth and inspiration you give me.
