By Heather / June 25, 2018

Is there any privacy left in the world? I’m beginning to wonder! Living in a small town with 3 traffic lights you tend not to think about big brother watching you.

Life In The Fast Lane

By Heather / February 8, 2018

Now I don’t normally do life in the fast lane, but yesterday turned out to be one of those days. There was so much going on that I couldn’t keep track of things. I would start to do one thing and then another popped up that took priority over the previous chore and consequently nothing […]

Throughout our lives, we make millions of choices and decisions, but how many of us actually make a conscious choice for each of those decisions.

I Heard The Raven Call

By Heather / January 22, 2018

I heard the raven call today and although some say that it sounds hoarse and harsh, to me it is music in the making. He walks beside me and in his glistening coat of black, cocks his head to one side as if he hears what I cannot. To me… Ravens are the messenger A […]
