The word nurture is such an enormous hug that lifts me up and supports me to become the very best version of myself.  So, without any hesitation, the thought of living a nurtured life inspires me to learn, curate, integrate, evolve and share the kaleidoscope of living wisdom available to us.

I hope that in some small way I’ll positively touch your life, and that my life choices will create a ripple effect that nurtures me, my family, friends, community, and our living planet. 

The aim of this online collectanea is to inspire you to also live a nurtured life.

Please pour yourself a warm cup of tea and find a comfy spot to read the topics that interest you most.
