Living in pain – the coping mechanisms

I know I don’t look particularly fit or athletic, but at this point, this is therapy. Pixie thoroughly enjoys the sessions too. (It’s taking a lot of courage for me to post these images.) This week I shared one of the biggest challenges I’ve been struggling with for most of my life. I described how... Continue Reading →

Reflections: 2.0 Theatre & Performing

What started out as an exercise to reflect on my blogging and writing skills, led to the idea of creating a series of reflective posts. In a year when theatre and the arts were practically halted to a standstill globally, I had to take a minute to reflect on how lucky I’ve been to get the opportunity to take the stage several times this year.
