Going through Me-Time month and spending a lot of energy on analysing my priorities and time, I’ve realised that I have been writing a lot of To-Do lists. To be honest, I quite like my To-Do lists, but this month has seen me doubling their output as I try to make more time for myself. … Read More

April is our Bhoomie month to appreciate me-time, something Miss Tea-Time is very good at helping us with as she realises the “value of relaxation to the mind and the body”. There are many ways that I can think of relaxing, a bath, listening to music or meditation, but when do I actually make alone … Read More

Turtles have been making their way around the blue for 220 million years. They are intelligent and graceful, and make navigating the waters look so easy – when in fact it is an incredibly dangerous journey. Sea Turtles can migrate for thousands of miles through treacherous ocean as part of their lifecycle, driven by a … Read More

Streetwise Butterflies

March 24, 2014By Zellie

Flying arcs of elegance, colour and beauty – that’s what I think when I watch butterflies glide graciously through the garden. On the outside they may seem timid because of their beautiful paper-thin wings, but butterflies are quite something else. They made their first appearance on Mother Earth around 40-50 million years ago and during … Read More

UBUNTU – A bond of sharing that connects all humanity

February 12, 2014By Zellie

Ubuntu is a beautiful word from South Africa. It’s used to give voice to a bond that we share with each other, a connection between all humanity. Literally it means “Human Kindness”, but each family in Africa has their own interpretation of the word. One that has had the biggest impact on my heart is … Read More

When I walk on the beach, my feet make footprints that usually stay in the sand for only a few moments before the waves arrive to sweep them away. As they disappear, I’m reminded that I only have a temporary guest pass to enjoy this beautiful planet. Becoming Aware My pass is a reminder that … Read More
