Everything will be all right

(This should be read while listening to The Killers track of the same name – see below.) My defining memory of this song is listening to it on an overnight bus that took us from Brazil to Argentina. I had it on repeat as I looked out the window at the darkening landscape flashing past, worrying. We’d been staying in the ridiculously fabulous Hotel Das Cataratas on the edge of Iguassu Falls and were entering Argentina with very little money and no idea how long before we had to fly home with no plan.

A different way to gift this Christmas

I’m proud to say that although there are still 6 weeks till Christmas, I’ve finished all my Christmas shopping. I would say, “somebody give me a prize!” except that when I told my mom this yesterday, she said she’s also finished all her Christmas shopping – and wrapped all the presents! Crikey. Somebody give her a prize!

The reason this Christmas is so stress-free is not (only) because my mom and I love being organised, but because we’re approaching Christmas differently this year…

A few beautiful things…

It’s Monday morning, the sun is shining, I slept well and I have an extraordinarily exciting week ahead. I am happy.

I am also much more aware, these days, of these moments of happiness. I hold on to them with both hands, because I know that they can be fleeting, and that’s okay… ‘This too will pass’ is supposed to be advice for happy and sad things, isn’t it? Here are a few beautiful things I wanted to share with you.
