Favorite Music

I love world music, rich singers and good rhythms. I also like folky guitar to listen to and to play. I am always trying to learn guitar and to use my voice which has been a wonderful and inspiring thing this year. i love to play percussion which is mainly drumming but i will try anything.

At the moment i just love playing and singing kirtan which is singing my heart out to god and the universe. (or singing my heart out to life and love) It really nourishes me and enhances my sense of connection with all things aswell enhancing the sense that i am.

About Me

I live on the south coast of NSW Australia. I live with my two gorgeous children Maia and Finn bee (12 and 6) I love making things, and I love ideas. all sorts of anything that inspires me at the time. I really love thinking and allowing creative process to happen.

I have recently had the good fortune of renting the most wonderful house in the forest where I can have my own studio, just thinking about being in there gives me peace and refuge when i feel overwhelmed or even when i am feeling fine. The time i get to spend in there feels so nourishing for me. It is a luxury that i have never had and that i am extremely grateful for.

Yoga and spiritual practice is really important to me and i like wearing odd socks. i get grumpy when i am hungry or tired. I am bored of tv and movies and i spend my evenings making, talking, loving, playing and being.

I have attended several births as a doula at home and in hospital and i get on really well with babies.I am currently looking for ways to expand that path. I am passionate about local food production and community gardens.I work 3 days in a bulk wholefoods co operative.

I am really into acknowledging the pagan ceremonial times through out the year and i like to worship the earth, the sun and the moon. I also love water and rain and i believe strongly in magic, just magic.

Favorite Books

Some of my favourite books are Bliss by Peter Carey. That has stayed at the top for around eight years now. The Harry Potter series (J.K. Rowling) is brilliant. Spiritual Midwifery by Ina May Gaskin is another fave. Herbs and Things by Jeanne Rose is full of fascinating herbal folklore and recipes such as how to become invisible and how to enchant a broomstick. Poetry and stories by Kahlil Gibran poetry by my friend jeff The education of little tree by Francis Carter anything by Michael leunig Women who run with the wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes I have been reading bits of for years and i keep coming back to it and reading it over again and discovering new things. Healing with Wholefoods by Paul Pitchford I love anything by Barbera Kingsolver and Jeanette Winterson. i love the clan of the cave bear series

Favorite Crafts

I love craft in all shapes and forms and i always have.

At the moment i am mainly into music and writing and loving.

Comment: Catherine, I have to agree with you in saying, that in film, Hagrid is one of my all time favorite charecters. I was sort of disappointed that you didn't see much of Hagrid in that last film. I know he doesn't play a hugh role at the end but he did play a large part in the movies as a whole and I think I would have like to see him just in the end as a sort of good bye. Maia, I loved that dragon bit too! They did do a really good job with that. BUT I have to agree with Indigo in say Luna Lovegood is my favorite of all time. (I even named one of my cats Luna). She is such a good friend to everyone, never judges people and yes... she does have very pretty hair!
