Interesting that Mary-Lou read out the following verse from A NEST TWICE BUILT, on radio yesterday. I had recently received an email from another reader who said these words connected with her as well...

It was just a quick catch up,
takeaway coffees on a park bench.
Our feet kicked at autumn leaves,
a sparrow our silent witness.
And something else too,
humming between our words

  - the guilt of distant possibilities

Looking forward to meeting Mary-Lou Stephens and being interviewed about A NEST TWICE BUILT :
Sunshine Coast ABC Radio : Monday 28 October, around 3.30pm.

Embrace solitude,
the chance to still the centre
of your body, your soul -
  your 'self'

When thinking about which thoughts and verses to include in A NEST TWICE BUILT I wanted to include those that inspired, gave a laugh and... well... made you shrug away any worries. To ignore outside negativity and keep everything in perspective. Such actions are so much easier to think about and plan than actually execute. But can make such a difference to life happiness if achieved, even with small steps.

The day is out there. Waiting
Tapping its foot. Waiting.
Counting off the minutes. Waiting.
And do you know what -
  if you don't go out there. Now.
The world will miss
 the joy of you.
