The Very First play

True, it wasn’t the Very First One. The Very First One was in the South of France when I was 8 – and with a dozen of cousins we’d prepared a succession of acts, walking the adults from the swimming pool (choreographed jumps and dives!) to the living room (dancing-worm rendition by my 5-year-old little […]

Feel The Fear… and Do It Anyway

There’s this famous book by Susan Jeffers called Feel The Fear… and Do It Anyway…. …that I haven’t read yet but everyone keeps raving about. And the title can’t help but resonate. I have mixed feelings about valiantly working through fear because I’ve learned in the past few years that feeling uncomfortable, un-aligned, plain stressed […]

When 2 people show up at your party

Recently I received a text message from my sister. “The reason mum can’t find a date to celebrate her birthday is not that she can’t find a date. It’s that she’s scared of organising a party”. … which in a way is cute given that she’s about to turn 60, has 50 people in her […]

The dress I’ve always dreamt of

Some girls start planning their wedding very early on. Others, much later, when their partner is on one knee and they say yes but what they’re really thinking about is the year ahead and the enormous project that’s just been added to their to-do list.

Finding love

Love’s been big on my list, big on my mind recently. I’m looking for it and would like 2018 to be the year of love. Not the love that comes from someone else (I’ve got that already). Rather, love for myself by myself. Living in Love. Creating from a place of love. Loving what I […]

Actually, i’m strong

So, something wonderful happened during my holidays. It was the first holiday in a year, and I’d decided to backpack on my own, which I’d never really done. And a sign of change… For the first time in years, I didn’t take my computer with me – which was scary (How did I put myself […]

Finding Joy When Your Art Feels Like A Drag

Have you ever embarked on a project with all your heart just to feel completely lost a few months or years down the line? Ever gone through a phase when you said to yourself “Hang on a minute, I don’t even know what I AM anymore…”? I have. And thought these moments are notoriously uncomfortable, […]

Why you never finished  that book

Last night I had dinner with a dear friend of mine who told me I was so driven, and asked me how I do it. She also told me I have a specific ability to work hard. And that she is not like that. She added that she started a book a few years ago, […]

How to become very good at what you do?

Recently, I have realised that my dream life has come true. The life I had fantasized about years ago when I was still a consultant and felt trapped. Now I have absolute freedom. I am paid to dance, perform, write. I have my own company – with absolute creative freedom and an amazing team. I […]
