We’re writing to you from a special watery bolthole on the magical estuary of Wrabness – hunkering down in a friend’s beach chalet for a weekend of good food, rest and recuperation…and for the gathering of new material for our live music and vibrational healing work. Ever the eternal students of the ‘university of whatever […]

I bought a new saxophone last week – a “pocket sax”!  It’s rather an odd looking object…and despite its name, it doesn’t look OR sound anything like a saxophone. There’s no shiny lacquered brass – just a plain wooden body resembling a recorder, with a clarinet mouthpiece stuck on the end…and blown gently it emits […]

March 15th 2019 (Releasing Song)

Last night I was leafing through a diary I kept while in New Zealand back in 2014…..beginning to plan a trip for early next year to see my wonderful family again. I revisited some of the beautiful Maori poetry I’d collected during my travels. This one touched me deeply:   “Flowing water of tears Bringing […]

The rain dwindles on this overcast Sunday afternoon as I head out to the woods.

Posted on

In 1988 I went to a “Wig” party in North London wearing a lustrous blond creation borrowed from my friend Dave! An impromptu competition spontaneously developed as the night drew on – the hostess started awarding scores to her motley crew of mates for their hairpieces. Realising she needed some prizes, she began plucking random […]

I enjoyed an informal Sunday brunch meet with our marketing guru Beth this afternoon – in one of my favourite café “offices” in Essex. A discussion about brand awareness, publicity materials and the importance of sustainable company ethics ensued as we munched on roast chicken panini. I agreed it was vital as part of the […]

  I snuggle round a roaring open fire on this chilly eve, wondering if snow will descend tonight in East Anglia, as anticipated by the BBC forecast?  I mull over my travel plans for tomorrow….mindful of leaving in good time whatever the weather decides to do. Even the thought of snow slows me down – […]

28thJanuary 2019 (Retreating)

Posted on

A tiny barn near Cambridge hosted the first “her&her”creative retreat this weekend. Moving on from its former use as a storage space for beer barrels, the outbuilding has been lovingly transformed into the perfect place to withdraw from the hubbub of everyday life. Cydnei B and myself set off from our respective homes in Nottinghamshire […]
