Embarrassments R Us

Posted: | In: Seed Pearl

This is all about toe curlingly embarrassing moments. We all have them; we are human after all, but some of us experience embarrassment more often then others, and that is so fascinating. It is like we have an embarrassometer, and some of us seem to hit 10 on a regular basis. Many years ago, I

By the time you read this, Scotland will have voted, and the results will be all over the news. It looks like we’ve made our bed, and we’re staying together. Perhaps you may be relieved to read that this has nothing to do with the Historic Event. Or it may do – but just a teeny

How To Shine

Posted: | In: Seed Pearl

Over the past few weeks, I have been asked several times to explain a little bit more about the STARR Principle. You may have seen me refer to it over the different platforms of social media where we connect. The STARR Principle is a guide to living a brighter life. It is a personal development

Dog Days

Could it really be that we are having the sort of summer that hardly ever happens? The one where the sun predictably shines almost every day? The one where we actually feel hot, and the night skies are so clear we can stargaze to our heart’s content? We’ve long past the Solstice, and now we

Telling Lies

Have you ever been captivated by a pair of beautiful eyes? I have. They were golden and deep and full of meaning. And they held my attention, as does a Catherine Wheel, or a bolt of lightening, or the sun setting over the sea. Those sorts of eyes can change your life. They certainly changed

The Trust Issue

Posted: | In: Seed Pearl

There are many faces of betrayal, from friends to burglary, and everything in-between. From the moment we are born, we are encouraged to trust. In a quite possibly hostile world, our mothers  – for most of us, though tragically not all – are the first human beings in whom we can not only trust, but

Etymology

I always loved Kinder Surprise Eggs. Since 1974 those clever people at Ferrero have delighted us with yummy two-tone chocolate ova containing nearly impenetrable yellow plastic eggs, and inside that, fiddly little snap together toys. I never worked out that 3-in-1 deal. They claimed that it was chocolate, surprise and toy; but although we knew

Do You Give In?

Posted: | In: Seed Pearl

It seems that we give up and give in all too easily. Take the tube strike for example. The amount of people who simply give in these days is shameful. But is it? Isn’t it all so convenient, now we all have laptops, remote access to this and that, mobile telephones, and grocery deliveries to

I’m Having A Bed-In

Can you forgive me if today’s post is a little more, um jumbled and tumbled than my regular effort? I must ask in advance, because I have to admit, that is as good as today’s offering is going to get; this girl is somewhat feeling the effect of a little too much birthday partying…  

Where Were You This Morning?

Posted: | In: Seed Pearl

I belong to a website where people ask each other interesting questions. You know the sort of thing; what are the best rock lyrics ever written, why is mega a better superlative than awesome, what is the best blender for chefs, and How effective is helpareporter.com? It’s a brilliant site that can keep you absorbed
