All I need is a whisper, in a world that only shouts

Well I’ve got open eyes,
And an open door,
But I don’t know what I’m searching for.
I should know by now.

Well I’ve a big old heart,
This I know for sure,
But I don’t know what my love is for.
I should know by now.

Well I wait in line,
So I can wait some more,
‘Til I can’t remember what I came here for,
But I can’t leave now,
Cause I’ve a light that shines,
And a love so pure,
But I don’t know what to use them for.
I should know by now.

Well I spent my money, I lost my friends, I broke my mobile phone,
3 a.m. and I’m drunk as hell, and I’m dancing on my own,
Taxi-cabs ain’t stopping, and I don’t know my way home,
Well it’s hard to find a reason, when all you have is doubts,
Hard to see inside yourself when can’t see your way out,
Hard to find an answer when the question won’t come out,

Everyone’s filling me up with noise, I don’t know what they’re talking about
Everyone’s filling me up with noise, I don’t know what they’re talking about
Everyone’s filling me up with noise, I don’t know what they’re talking about
You see all I need’s a whisper in a world that only shouts.

Thank you so very much for this TODAY. Would it be ok if I put this blog post into this years comfort book, please? These are just journals I keep for myself. I’ve only ever published a few pages and that was just hand written notes, I put one blog post on here to try and help someone. Do you remember I told you I spent all my childhood holidays up in the Highlands and Islands? (I live in Wales) It was my parents love of Scotland that infected me from a very young age, I’m 50 now. Well Iona is my Mum’s favourite place in the whole world, I remember when I was 12 being in the tiny boat crossing over to Iona, seeing all the seals etc, I was cold and cross and bored but whilst there something changed in me and I just got it! Last year I almost lost her 4 times but she battled through, she’s 83 blind and disabled, she has been the most lovely inspirational Mum anyone could ever wish for, I’ve been so very very blessed, but today I looked into her eyes and I think she has had enough suffering now. She prayed 18 months ago to God to give her more years until she knew I was going to be ok after the vaccine damage and the consequences of all that, there is only myself, my Mum & my daughter left, but today I could see in her eyes that she wants to let go now. Your post has brought back so many happy memories, I don’t have any photo’s of that special day. Wow, I will treasure this. You nurture this special talent you have and I hope (I apologise for making assumptions about your age here lol) in years to come that you will look back on this place Iona, with such very happy memories. I’ve discovered along the journey of life that the simplest of things and places hold the greatest riches. God bless. Su x

The tour of the western coast of Scotland continues and today we spent a day on Iona.

Iona is a small island off the southwest coast of Mull in the Inner Hebrides. It is only 1.5 miles wide by 3 miles long, with a population of around 120 permanent residents. Despite this, Iona has a special place in the heart of many people the world over. It is well known as ‘The cradle of Christianity’ in Scotland and is a place of pilgrimage for many. Today we witnessed many people travelling to the island despite the wind and rain spend time in the Abbey and soaking up the peaceful atmosphere of the island.

We spent time visiting the historic and religious sites (and attended a church service) and we also had a good walk around the island visiting some of the beaches. Here are some images from a day that was full…

Sketch of a woman crying

As a woman who grew up in the seventies, when ‘feminism’ wasn’t the dirty word it’s become today, I look upon our current society and it’s treatment of women and simply shake my head. Ladies and gentlemen, have we really come such a long way?

I observe the younger generations of women in their various modes of dress – or more accurately ‘undress’ – and listen to their often inane chatter with a sense of disappointment and, it has to be said, a good measure of despair. Three or four decades ago, some of us fought long and hard to promote a world in which a woman could stand tall (even if you’re short, like me), feel self-assured, trust her own decisions, operate from her own reality and mostly, feel empowered to operate on an equal basis with our male counterparts. We pursued for ourselves…

Confused! Women Don’t Have A Prostate Do We?

I was just replying to a comment somebody left me about his Mum having cancer. I thought “Oh this poor lady, this sounds bad” Then the thought just came to me, women don’t have a prostate do they so how can this woman have prostate cancer? Lol, this is a great example of why I’m not longer teaching, I’d be a liability to any employer. I’m a bit slow on the uptake these days hee hee. I guess this is one that slipped through spam.

The Hourglass


Just thought I’d reblog a few old posts. Su x

Consider the hour-glass; there is nothing to be accomplished by rattling or shaking; you have to wait patiently until the sand, grain by grain, has run from one funnel into the other.

“Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives…..”

Yes, I see the hourglass, often race against it.

Most days it’s as if my feet hit the floor and someone, (I’m not sure who) turns that hourglass over and the race is on, just to get through the day. It’s like a bad board game.

If  I’m honest, (and I do try to be) I don’t always notice the ‘ grains of sand’ that make up that hourglass. The hourglass of my life. I live my life often missing the grains of sand that when added together become the beautiful beach of my life. I am treating it as a timer rather than noticing all…

Do you know what, I just want to say I’m pretty proud of the way I cope with my multiple health problems. Despite how I feel I get up as soon as my eyes are open every single day. I never ever lay in bed feeling sorry for myself. Every single day is a gift. A gift that I’m so blessed and thankful for, no matter how much suffering I endure. I’m so glad to be here. I love you God. Su x
