Courage Is A Tricky Thing

by Tanya Geisler

Rarely do you see an act of courage and recognize it immediately for what it is. There is seldom a rousing crescendo of music playing to bring our attention round to a courageous feat before us. It helps when someone points it out. “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting […]

The Expression of Love

by Tanya Geisler

Here’s what I know about love. Unexpressed, love is: a painting unrealized, a gift not given, a talent not shared, a song unsung, a good idea, that no one will ever know. Yes.

Leaving Space In New Beginnings

by Tanya Geisler

Though already nine months into the year, September always feels like a new beginning to me. A joyful one of shifting temperatures, vivid colours, crispness and texture. Oh how I adore this time of year.   We awaken from the stupour of the heat and shake off the sluggishness of lazy (albeit) blissful days on […]
