6th April 2020 (her&her in lock-down)

Posted on

It’s been one ‘hello!’ of a challenging month globally and personally too…what with Cydnei’s mum dying in March, (unrelated to Covid19 we hasten to add), and illness plus economic struggles sweeping like fury throughout this country and the world…never mind the unexpected shift of pressure on everybody…gosh…we didn’t see this coming…or did we..? Always looking […]

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 […]

April 8th 2019 (Hybridising)

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. A brisk walk outside always brings me a sense of calm and perspective, especially when there’s some difficult news to digest. I stop in a deserted clearing and hear the droplets of rain as a gentle rhythm track to the […]

24th February 2019 (The Wig and Conch)

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 […]
