WYSM

I cant remember a time in my life when I didn’t know that I was adopted. Mum and Dad told my sister and I at the same time and I remember for much of my life it didn’t really mean too much of a difference… I had a great childhood filled with horses and friends, […]

The Quest for an ‘Obituary photo’

‘So sit down, tell me what’s your story?’ It was an innocent enough question, but Bev wasn’t after the version I usually gave people… and god love her for reminding me that my story was so much more and that I need to take centre stage and tell it. Enter Camp Mojo 2015 I am by nature […]

Stop, Stop right now put down the lead pencil
