Growing pains.
In the dark mess, you know no light.
Logic has no reasoning.
Pain and turmoil are what you know.
There is no rest from your own mind.
It spins on and on - out of control.
You no longer can outrun what you have desperately tried to esca...

Hey universe.
It's been awhile.
I used to call you Jesus - but that name carries many scars for me now.

I think you would get it.
I never thought we'd end up here.
I really don't know much anymore.
It all is grey to me.
One day the boundaries shifted...

I see you Mumma.

Laden with bags - groceries, parcels, school bags and the ever overflowing bag you carry filled with everything the kids might need, someday.

I see the never ending thoughts, the planning: what's for lunch? What's for dinner? What time...

The sun rose.
I have a gift for you, a perfume I prepared.
I know – it’s pointless, really. But I just want to give You something for all You are, or were to me.

The divine that is you.

I honour the divine t...

It's the most wonderful time of the year.
But it doesn't feel wonderful to me.
It feels heavy.
The expectations of distant family, where there's so much unspoken history and awkwardness.
We don't have words to fill the silence.
It hangs thick in the...

I'm tired of the fight.
The fight of little me sparking hope that one day this world will be a better place.
The fight of little us standing for people over profit and shouting, "STOP! You will not win."

There once was a man who had two sons. The younger of them said to his father, “Father, give me the share of the property that will one day belong to me.”

The father did so and gave the younger son his blessing. “May you be fruitful in everything you...

For those who wander,
You are not lost.
Those who are willing to break,
You are not broken.
Those who are willing to love,
You are not weak.
Those who believe they can change the world,
You are not dreamers.

You are not what they told you.
The first s...
