A New Challenge

Courageous trust within my sixth sense

Protect me

Shield me

Safe inside my make believe fence

The fences lines are blurred


My psyche, my soul

Impressed on me

good instinct

Sheltered, cherished within my fence

Do I dare to break out of my sanctuary

This does not cohere, nor make sense

Seal my fate,





Leave my comfort zone


Watch me walk through

My fenced gate

What is out there

I said yes to a new challenge

I have reached my fabulous 50s. Guess what, it’s okay. 20 years in the health and wellness industry. Educating men and women on the importance of nourishing their bodies with good food, moving with integrity, recharging their energy levels and empowering their minds. I love my job. A mother of two boys who are now men and my greatest achievement. A lover of words, an aspiring author with a book written and no idea where to go next, a poet who writes from the heart and her vulnerability. A foodie who loves to experiment, a salad lover , But not just your Every day salad, I throw in anything you can think of it ends up in my salad. I have a reputation for making the greatest weirdest salads around. As a total contradiction, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I rescue abandoned souls in the bodies of dogs, an animal lover, Who sometimes likes animals more than humans. My teacher in life, my mother never ceases to amaze me. I am one fortunate human being who is filled with gratitude for the life she lives.

  1. Sue thank you… I really do draw on my own experiences and / or other people‘s experiences and then try to take them outside their actual reality and add a new dimension. Maybe find a happy ending for them or dramatise them. Thank you for that comment though. It means a lot to me. 🙏
