About me


Self portrait


My name is Elaine and I live in England, a typical Aquarian subject. I tend to jump around writing lots of poetry then longer articles about various subjects. I enjoy painting and occasionally take part in the daily word challenge and try to think outside the box whenever possible!

I am married to my lovely husband John who is my soul mate and best friend.

I am a spiritual person with a positive attitude to life. We have many lessons to learn in our lifetime, not all which are good ones. Challenges, when faced with courage and a sense of humour, along with a positive attitude allows us to overcome obstacles and help us appreciate who we are and the fact we are alive. I studied Reiki healing and often send absent healing and hugs to people who need it. πŸ’ž

Its has taken me a long time to realise that although it is good to feel that anything we do is recognised, it is not my goal in life anymore to receive awards . My goal is to write something that maybe touches someone inside, inspires them, makes them smile and even gives them an escape from their reality if they need one.

Therefore I decided to keep this site an award free site and carry on doing what I’m doing. Meanwhile, hopefully learning from the masters to develop what I love doing the most which is painting and writing from the heart…. Β Elaine X

  1. I am so glad to know you Elaine, you look too young to have grand kids πŸ™‚ while I was reading the above I could feel how some people can think and feel so much similar πŸ™‚ I too more or less have the same reasons to write and be here on the blog. I hope to stay connected as long as I am able to. May your family and you be blessed with good health, peace, content and love always πŸ™‚

    • Thanks same here, we have a similar outlook regarding medication or rather keeping away from it!

      I suffered a lot from acid reflex but after reading about the damage that the medication could do I stopped taking it, months after I ended up with gastritis, erosions and Barrettes disease which is basically pre cancerous cells and I’m back on the meds 😬

      Some meds are necessary yet some have more side effects than the original problem, it’s finding the balance.

      I look forward to reading more of your post
