You light my soul, with a kind of giddy music that picks me up, and tumbles me down, on a bed of starry dreams that fell from the skies, and sprouted into blooming flowers, dressed with honey – those bees couldn’t help themselves, they just joined us with a frivolous desire to make life, that extra bit sweeter, while we played and kissed beneath a crisp blue sky mirroring the magic in your eyes.

Dear Reader, I hope this post finds you well, enjoying the spring, and the refreshing vibrance that the sun’s kiss brings. With the arrival of May, we’re well into the season of renewal and rebirth, and feeling the ripples of warmth and joy that summer’s arrival signals.
Indeed May Day marks the mid-point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice (in the Northern hemisphere), and corresponds with the ancient pagan festival of Beltane – a celebration of life, fertility and creation.
On that note, I would like to take the opportunity to wish you well for this next chapter. Wherever you are on your life’s journey, I hope that the seeds of your dreams are coming to fruition, and you can harness the energy of this season to give yourself an extra boost towards achieving your goals.
To give you a personal update on my own life’s projects, I’m preparing for my summer arts tour across Canada, with my husband Alex. We’ll be sharing our music, poetry, and my book – Siege. Published in the depths of a dark, Canadian winter, I’m excited to see it brought more into the light this summer.
I’m also planning for my return to Costa Rica later this year. Now, with electrical infrastructure in place at the land, the plan is to start building – starting with some small guest cabins so that we can open the space up to share with others. For this, I need support – and I am looking for those interested who want to sponsor the building of “tiny homes”, in exchange for free visits (including local organic food, daily meditations and Qi gong).
You can find a brief overview of the project here. If you’re interested in exploring alternative ways of living (self-sufficiently and in-tune with nature) do reach out! For those new readers who don’t know me yet – I spent nearly 10 years living in the busy city of London, where I established my legal practice, before being locked down in Costa Rica during the pandemic. I then spent 3 years living in the jungle, with fresh air, pristine water, and local organic food, and experienced profound positive effects on my health from this environment and lifestyle. It became very clear to me that this was my true home, and that there was no going back to my old ways of being.
So, my invitation to you is to come and discover a different way of living, to see if that feels good for you. Whether you just want a short escape to “recharge” before going back to the city, or would like to explore options for longer-term living on the land with us, please get in touch with me at: email@example.com.
Have a beautiful weekend, and thank you as always for supporting my work!
