My mid-life journey: "40 & lovin' it?" Hmm... (I'll let you know, soon'ish!)

The 40-journey for me has been a curious one so far... It's become a time of pressing the "pause button" and thinking about things even more introspectively than I have in the last 10 years or so.


I have friends who have gone through similar journeys and they have been helpful in conversing with about this strange stage in life, so I remain ever grateful to them for their continued patience and counsel.

Since being young I've been fascinated with dragonflies, and I read recently that these ancient insects can go through stages of re-emergence and that's incredibly inspiring to me...
I will write more on this soon here on the blog, but my creative writing is one of the things I've also pressed pause on for a little while, so hopefully that goes some way in explaining the long gap in blog posts here.  My scribble habit and I will return and re-emerge though, so watch this space!
