About Me

My Photo
A few years ago I decided to start a new career as a performer. I used to be a biology teacher but couldn't face walking around in a white coat all day teaching children who didn't want to learn. Actually it wasn't so much the children as the system cause I think all children want to learn - they just don't all want to learn in schools. Anyway I now work as a Life and Executive coach. Work is perhaps not the right word because it never feels like work. I just love to see people grow and change. I love it when they peel of the layers of limiting beliefs and find their true self. And I make some great frends in the process. I've re-discovered my writing and have published two poetry books and now working on 2 CDs, a novel, a book of short stories and talking to someone about a collaoration on a film script. That should keep me busy for a whild. Oh and I do bellydance.

The Secret

I'm watching The Secret again, about the third time this year. Thinking I could benefit from watching it once a week. We (me and another friend) set up a small group in September to help us focus on the principles of The Secret. We've called it The Secret Society. We've met to help each other create vision boards, to share our goals and to keep us firmly believing our goals are acheivable. I'm living the Secret. I've had an incredible year. Not everything's gone according to my plans but the outcomes have been better than expected. I've lost three dear friends, and while I will miss them on this plane I know their energies are still with me.

I've claimed being a writer performer. I mean deep down 'this is who I am'. I've finally felt brave enough to publish my poems and I've even recorded my voice in a CD of a selection of poems. A few big things happened this year. I started a novel. Writers Without Borders was 10 years old. I took on a big chunk of organising our anniversary celebrations in October as part of Birmingham Book festival, which was a huge success. First time ever we sold out the Library Theatre. I co-wrote a play about Mary Seacole with Mahogany Tree which we performed in November. I performed a solo dance at the Bellydance Hafla at the end of Nov, and was the lead dancer in one of our two class dances. I published the books and CD in December. I've got a restaurant review in a food magazine which came out last week. 'Taste the Caribbean' is a high quality glossy on Caribbean food, what to buy, how to cook, and where to eat it. My piece was on a restaurant in Barbados. I'm doing a writing course at Boldmere centre and in the process building up a selection of short stories which I'll publish next year. I'm very excited about writing and performing.

Eleven days to the end of the year. Been an amazing one. Really looking forward to 2011.
