The saying in life is really true that a persons life can change overnight! Mine did in 2010 when I woke up with a swollen leg, that afternoon I was in an emergency room in Hackensack NJ. The Ultra sound showed 3 blood clots! The one in my leg was called Deep Vein Thrombosis and the other two were by both lungs called Pulmonary Embolisim. Between 2 hospital stays, 3 leg operations, and a stay in physical rehab I was in a bed for 30 days. I always say Be Thankful For What You Have!

Communication is the more spiritual part of our book. It and other readings' scattered throughout help to inspire the soul and bring a feeling of continuity and belief in self. Welcome to our family home. Both in a spiritual sense and material time and place. Life in Rowlands Gill from around 1900 is just at the beginning of a newly established farming and mining village. Nestled deep within the beautiful Derwent Valley, across the river from Gibside Estates a 12th century residence once belonging to the Earls of Strathmore and the old queen mothers' family. A long walk from our roots in Scotland and Ireland with much sadness and loss through the 1st World War. Mixed in with spiritual writings which others' have asked me to set down and which are deeply inspirational and educational. The book is an on going project which has already taken many compassionate years to set down and is a much loved project for us all.

Follow in the Tigerman's Footsteps subtitled The Adventurous Life of an Expat, is about a life most only get to dream about. It reads more like an adventure book, being packed with crazy, exciting and at times frightening situations, mixed with a blend of humor. It shows there is more to life than a boring 9-5 job, and by being positive when things get bad, can climb back up into the driving seat of your life.
You're Ovaryacting is a short non-fiction piece - an extended anecdote I guess. It started as a facebook status then grew into something bigger. The theme is sexism in the workplace, an issue that has received much media attention in Australia in recent months. I found myself incredibly angry at the treatment of our first ever female Prime Minister Julia Gillard and decided to write about my own experiences. Thanks for allowing me the chance to share my story!
Dear Reader, On November 25th, 2007, I had a panic attack so severe that it lasted for three days straight. It began soon after the entree course was served at my cousin, Su Ming's wedding, in Darling Harbour, Sydney. My mother and I had flown there from Brisbane earlier that day. (My fear of flying, being one of about eight contributing factors, and most certainly a fear in itself that I had to overcome.) The episode was so acute that I lost the physical sensation of touch, the ability for rational thought, and most devastatingly, I lost the sense of any possible future outside of three seconds! I have since tried to think of the worst things in the world that I could use to describe the sheer agony. Upon returning to my home, I was still ill. This letter was my tool for alleviating the agony. It was hand written in one night, to a dear friend, from my bed. There are no decisive resolutions except that which I must learn to endure, and a deep sadness from knowing that I will have the source of my anxiety with me always. Thank you.
