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 →
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.
November and December are always exciting months for my family and I, as right after Halloween we start preparing for Christmas. Saying that we love the holiday is a bit of an understatement. Under normal circumstances, we would have fully decorated mum’s house for Halloween and had a massive party. On the first of November... Continue Reading →
Since writing the post about my dad, it’s been incredibly difficult to write down my thoughts. Thoughts are constantly flooding my overthinking brain.

As a little girl The Little Mermaid was my number one movie and the VHS tape was always on repeat. I used to sing all the songs but close my eyes whenever Ursula came on screen. Of course now I dream of playing that role and belting ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls’ on stage, but I digress.... Continue Reading →
I think it's truly amazing how parents manage to instil in us 'loves' and 'passions' for a number of different things. I know I definitely got the love for music and dance from my parents, which seems to have been passed onto them by their parents and grandparents. It also seems that with each generation...

A clumsy person might hope that being locked indoors as we currently are, would provide a safer environment and thus make us less prone to accidents. I'd like to be the one to debunk this theory, or at the very least put a dent in it. Putting a dent in things is somewhat of a... Continue Reading →
