Grow Your Own, Make Your Own

a journey of discovery


Life seems to move like the ocean, with ebb and flow. Things come in waves and sometimes you feel like you might drown as it all comes tumbling in around you. But then the water recedes, you pick yourself up and get yourself ready for the next wave, saying “this time I’ll jump up before the wave breaks over me! Or I’ll catch it and ride it into shore!”.

Does anyone else ever feel this way?

I haven’t written on here for a while. I’m still tumbling about in the wave, trying to work out which way is up. But I can feel the water starting to recede.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m still happy and hopeful! I’m just learning to recognise the rhythms of life so that I can start to catch the waves rather than drown in them! So while I try to catch my breath, my little blog will have to wait a moment.

See you soon!

PS. Here’s a picture of my foster elephant Barsalinga, just because. He is being fostered through the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. He’s two weeks older than my son (they both just turned 2!). Cute isn’t he? 🙂
