The Best of Hosts!
Writer Published on September 14, 2017

Predestination. Karma. Fate. Call it what you will. The Lord smiles as my life rolls in and out of its predestined plan. As a result of my fall from the stage, my life as an actress ended. What do I do now, I thought. Panic and terror about the future engulfed me. It was too much

“This royal throne of kings, this sceptered isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea.” ― William Shakespeare I think

My ‘Other’ Mum!
Writer Published on July 27, 2017

Libby is my aunt. I dislike using that word when describing Libs. ‘Aunt’ somehow seems to take away what Libby is to me. She is so much more than a mere aunt. Libs is my phenomenal, remarkable Other-Mum! As a child, I devoured the Enid Blyton’s book series Malory Towers and St Clares. As a

An Open Book!

“I finally understood what my grandmother meant. If I wasn’t comfortable with myself, I would never be comfortable.” ― Marjane Satrapi, Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return We all have a sense of identity.

“Now, should we treat women as independent agents, responsible for themselves? Of course. But being responsible has nothing to do with being raped. Women don’t get raped because they were drinking or took drugs. Women do not get raped because they weren’t careful enough. Women get raped because someone raped them.” ― Jessica Valenti She
