Inspiration - The Power of Creativity

A day of touring Harry Potter world with the little ones left me feeling so inspired to keep creating. Over 4,000 people were involved in making the film series, collaborating to create something quite phenomenal. Such passion, creative energy and attention to detail triggered by a single idea that JK Rowling had on a train journey. Amazing.

Nigel Slater's Christmas Chronicles

"Come in." Two short words heavy with meaning. Step out of the big, bad wet world and into my home. You'll be safe here, toasty and well fed. "Come in." They are two of the loveliest words to say and to hear.

I settled down with some echinacea and elderberry tea and homemade ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg biscuits to start reading this beautiful book. Nigel Slater is the most lyrical writer. His words are the literary equivalent of curling up in an armchair with a blanket over your knees by an open fire. I received this book as a gift from a lovely friend. It's the perfect treat for start the Christmas season.

Shades of green in the streets of Copenhagen. Such a beautiful city to photograph.

Podcast - The Joy & Intimacy of Radio

There is something so special about radio. It's nostalgic and cosy. The right show makes you feel like you are the only listener at the same time as making you feel like you are part of a family. I enjoyed this podcast interview with Lauren Laverne, one of my favourite DJs on BBC 6 Music from Emma Gannon. Great company while I draw.
