Finding the Light
Yesterday, as the train pulled into the station and I began my journey, I noticed how much brighter the leaves on the trees looked. How the cherry blossoms were beginning to flower, a pink beacon upon the fences of some lucky dwellers. Then I noticed something I else.

I am pretty sure I’ve built a fire before. I’m pretty sure it was part of my induction as a member of the Marine Biological Society when I was an undergraduate student. After months of skin diving skills training in the pool and in the ocean, an applicant also has to pass a weekend camping […]

It feels like winter has just suddenly arrived! The rain is such a welcome relief for the plants, the farms, and the reservoirs. Having said that, I have forgotten the adjustment it takes to get used to the frosty mornings and the shorter days.

Winter Warmer: Mulled Wine
Mulled wine and winter go hand in hand. When I went to the UK in December 2011, the Christmas Markets were out in force and without fail, mulled wine was available everywhere. It takes a personal winter favourite (red wine) and enhances it tenfold. The only thing better than drinking it while strolling around a […]
