Superwoman...........


He flew down…… Cape flapping in the wind……… he declared powers of super strength …….  Superman……..He covered his face and climbed a wall and captured the baddies with a net………….. they called him Spiderman………… then there is Flash…… and don’t forget the Hulk……superhero’s……… however what of SHE?....... who is a mother a wife a girlfriend a lover a sister a work colleague a friend a neighbor a chef a counselor a mediator a peacemaker a navigator a stylist a tailor a cleaner a sometime plumber electrician a carpenter……. All rolled up in one…. Oh yes……… the true superhero…. SHE……… whether she does all, several or just 2…….. she does it first and SHE will come last……….. even on her list…….. doing these extraordinary things with little or no practice……. In silence……. Pushed on by love……….. her kryptonite is her loved ones…………… you see her everyday…….. sometimes by just looking in the mirror……… or maybe you call her ‘friend’ ‘mother’ ‘sister’ or ‘neighbor’……………. When you see her next……. Tell her how extraordinary she is…………… tell her that all of her efforts and sacrifices have not gone unnoticed………. Tell her she is your superhero….

Dedicated to my Mom and my sister Natalie Sykes,  the ultimate Superwomen.

Maverick....


Growing up in NY there were 2 rules about attire that most followed………… never wear white after Labor Day……… and never wear leather in the summer……….. the former was more because white signified summer (white tee’s, dresses and capri’s)and in September summer was definitely over and so the wearing of white was not practical in the cooler months alongside heavier clothing….the latter was definitely more frown upon…. One would be beset upon with open comments such as ‘hot leather wearing in the summer time’ and ‘no you didn’t!’..… in fairness 10 years ago the only people really wearing leather in the summer were bikers and prostitutes……….. today’s fashion is more individual and you wear what you like…….. or is it that I am more individual so I see it that way??........... summer leathers are perfect for summer evenings..…………. I cant wait for October so I can don my all white suit!...

X Deux......


Between a rock and a hard place…………..An uncomfortable position to be in…. two friends at war…………Who do you side with?.... is there really space for neutral ground…………. Each side will ask you too choose………. They will throw heavy words your way……… loyalty, blood, trust………….. is it really comfortable on the fence?............. opinions may exacerbate the problem….. you love them both…………each side has a point…..………. The decision will be hard…….. do nothing and sooner or later you become the problem………. An argument that was not yours……….. now bears your name……….. do something and it may cost you your friendship with one or both……….. in my experience, especially with friends…… the best solution is too step out of the middle and bring them together……… usually their argument is the same….. but said in different ways……… sometimes the coming together of the same thing makes the perfect solution…….

Lets Dance...

I laugh at the notion that all black people can dance……..
Have you seen Oprah move?.... by her own admittance….. its not good…
This thought lends itself that ones race can determined how successful one will be in specific areas………… allow me too be frank…….. that is utter garbage. Its all about nurture not nature……..and a lot of who you know!!!......the latter is not right or fair as talent is talent……. But sadly it’s the world we live in…. today I would like too Salsa……. I don’t have a drop of Cuban or Latin blood in me……. But who is going to stop me???........…..Lets dance.....

Bedowin...

Petra…….The Rose City…….. one of the modern wonders of the world…
From the moment I stepped on the soil………. I was different…………. I felt touched……with knowledge......... This ancient magical land inspired me in ways I did not know possible……….. I learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed every moment I was there……….they say its one of the top 28 places one must see before they die…… I have been fortunate to have travelled many places………. This should without a doubt be in the top 5……. I was amazed by the depth of creativity and intellect in the Ma’an’s……..what they built with what they had?......... the resilience they showed when faced with adversity can only be admired……….  and here we are, the ‘modern’ world……. Most of us with endless resource....... I wonder……. What will we build today??.....

Special thanks to my husband Simon, without him this impromptu trip would not have been possible…. Together honey, we will continue to build.xxx

The Dead Sea........



How still the water lies………………… What secrets does it hold?.............
The Dead Sea……………. The flotation tank………. Impossible to sink…..
My recent trip to Jordan was nothing short of remarkable……… I miss it already.
The people……… the food……..the music…… the aromas…………. There were moments I felt euphoric with all my senses being aroused………….
Jordan for me was beyond my expectation………… I long to be back there….
I stood on the edge of the Dead Sea and I saw Israel……………… How still the water lies………. No life beneath…………….. liquid salt………….. The Dead Sea.
Nothing short of amazing.
