Hello, I am eye. Pleased to meet you.
My name was given to me by someone who saw me in a way I felt I had never been seen before. Someone who spent the time necessary to get to know me, to get into my head and who asked me “what do YOU want eye?” at a point in my life when I was on the verge of being totally consumed by the desires, needs and wants of those around me. The ramifications from that simple question in my life were huge and I found myself akin to a shipwrecked sailor, cast adrift on the sea by storms, surrounded by wreckage and buffeted by waves and recently come to land in a strange, beautiful and unfamiliar place. I remain, however, grateful that someone cared enough to ask me the question.
I am engaged in putting my creative practice and my needs and desires at the centre of my life instead of consigning them to the scrag ends of the day when my energy is low. This blog is part of that process and in some way charts both my success and failure to meet that aim.
My blog is divided into 3 parts:
moments – these are pieces of work inspired by specific occasions or events, sometimes prose, sometimes poetry, sometimes just a memory I am attempting to capture
words – this is where my most of my writing lives.
images – there are times when I can’t write. Stress and anxiety can make me mute. When that happens I try to continue to connect to my creativity by taking and editing pictures on my phone. I am self taught and proud of what I have achieved so far.

Friends are welcome, although I should warn you that any questions asked of me may turn into writing prompts. I will credit you when that happens if you want that but if not it will remain our shared secret.
Music, art, books, food, dance, new things, myth, exciting ideas, travel, beauty, and my children and my M are my passions. I love it when they coincide. Those I love know that I love with a fierceness and with my will engaged to make it good and special for all concerned.
I engage on various social media sites and cross-post links to this blog in many places. I am delighted to find that this new land is not uninhabited as I feared but is peopled with a striking diversity and range of opinion, insight and kindness. I will be exploring its bays, mountains and valleys daily and if we meet during my forays, know that I come in peace.
