Conversations with Belief

title_wm

“How is the book coming along?” she asked. “I’m slowly falling in love with it.” There is a difference between the things we know and the things we believe. The things we know can be black and white, matter of fact. The things we believe often live in a world of grey. Our instinct, our…

Conversations with the Wedding Dress

always Josefa_wedding 4

She would swoon over the wedding dresses in the window, coffee cup in hand, as she walked down the small street in her lunch break. A daily ritual. To escape work, to breath in some fresh air. Designers dresses lined up in a row, fairy tales on display. Each one a promise that happily ever…

Conversations with Disappointment

IMG_2916_wm

If there was one thing she knew about herself, with absolute certainty, it was that disappointment marked the end. Not the end of all things. Not the end of family holidays in the sun. Not the end of babies becoming toddlers becoming little boys. Not the end of great loves lived to their fullest. Disappointment…

Conversations with the little things

IMG_1816_title

The silence brushed against her cheek as she walked through the empty house. A softness had settled in the air, gently caressing her face as she moved from room to room. Her outstretched hand lingered, gliding across the surfaces as she walked past them. Kisses from the sun streamed through the window and warmed her…

Conversations with Letting Go

IMG_1518_wm

Four weeks ago when I set the next topic for #convocoffee I had no idea what the four weeks would hold. How can anyone know what the future holds? I set the topic based on a gut instinct, a passing moment that ‘just felt right’ to set the topic of letting go. Now I sit…

Conversations with Writing My Story

PA240201_1_wm

Sitting in the audience and listening to Elizabeth Gilbert speak earlier this year was when the idea of each of us writing our own story first came to me. It is not a new idea, ground breaking or phenomenal. Just that I had never really thought about it in that way before. I knew I…

Conversations with My Hero

IMG_0492_wm_text2

I’ll be honest with you, when I set this conversation topic I wasn’t quite sure what to write about. Often I set the topic and have a half sketched plan or post swirling around in my mind. This time, I thought the idea of writing about heroes was a good one, but that was all.…

Conversations with Coming Home

IMG_0196_wm1

As I walked through my days thinking about what I would write for this post I couldn’t help but linger on repeat. The Diddy-Dirty Money Coming Home chorus playing relentlessly in my head. I’m coming home I’m coming home tell the world I’m coming home Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday…

Conversations with a Suitcase

IMG_0058_wm2

A suitcase can be a strange thing. At first thought it is nothing more than an ordinary household item, dull and often forgotten about. It sits collecting dust under a bed or in the garage. Abandoned till the spark of travel ignites and then it is remembered again. Yet on second thought, a suitcase can…

Conversations with Time

convotime

Time is the silent gatekeeper and the only immortal of this life. With each stroke through the seconds and the minutes another moment is defined. I have never been a friend of time. We kept each other at bay. A distance I found solace in as I grew in apprehension of what lay in wait.…
