When Joy Can Save Your Life!

 Sasha* one of my Stand-Up comedy students had come along to the class under duress. She could not see the point of it. Fun? Why bother when her job, her family and her life in general seemed to be just constantly dragging her down. She felt like she was made of lead and did notContinue reading “When Joy Can Save Your Life!”

Fold, Scrunch or…

  My life turned into a joke at the weekend – literally! We’ve all heard that old gag about the person being in a public toilet cubicle and the person in the next cubicle says “Hello?” And the gag teller replies with ‘Hello’ and starts conversing with the other cubicle dweller only to be talkedContinue reading “Fold, Scrunch or…”

I Close My Eyes and Jump

Goodness gracious what a week! I had always imagined that when days arrive that will change my life, they would be huge and dramatic. Maybe fireworks and heavenly choirs, marching bands and trumpets, a boom or two of thunder and lightning splitting the sky. But what really happened was an unprecedented overwhelming wave of peace,Continue reading “I Close My Eyes and Jump”

Stuffed Mums Strike Again!

  How do I describe the afternoon I’ve just experienced? Along with my Three Stuffed Mums colleagues Kate and Kehau I spent the afternoon at Goolwa, a small town south of Adelaide at the mouth of the mighty river Murray, and had the biggest amount of fun. We were there to perform a Three StuffedContinue reading “Stuffed Mums Strike Again!”

Still Standing

It would seem that once again life is showing me that it conspires to provide everything needed for progress – whatever you define that progress to be. Since my last post around about the middle of February ( I think) I’ve undergone some pretty massive changes in my life. We had the Three Stuffed MumsContinue reading “Still Standing”
