Two doors are not enough!

We have all had that car... the one that was sporty, our dream. The one we took on the open road and it made us feel great about ourselves. We took it out, showed it off to our friends and proudly looked after it, we even polished it and waxed it. We even "named" it...... Continue Reading →

Who wants to fly the plane?

Imaging if you will, you are on a flight from Heathrow to New York, and you are on final approach in to LaGuardia... over the intercom comes those dreaded words... "can anyone fly the plane". To quote Richard Branson; "say 'Yes' and work out how later" Of course the answer should always be a Yes... Continue Reading →

Who wants to be a Cyberman?

"Yes, we are all individuals"... a classic sketch from Monty Python's Life of Brian.  It illustrates the point well that whilst we all want to be different, we do take comfort from being part of a crowd or blending in with our tribe. During that sketch, one chap near the front shouts "I'm not [an... Continue Reading →

Breaking the chains

Why is it we don't live our lives to our fullest potential, how many times have we held ourselves back, we look back and wish we had done something differently or taken a leap of faith. I am not just talking about regrets, more about missed opportunities or lost moments. Is it because we believe... Continue Reading →

Finding my Safari Park

I spent most of my life knowing that I was not quite aligned in body and mind.  From an early age I used to dream and wish that little boys evolved into adulthood as women, and the little girls grew up to be men.  It was a recurring thought that was with me in my... Continue Reading →

It’s ok not to be ok!

There comes a point when you take a look at your life and decide that the way things are just not working, whether it is your relationship, your job or as in my case, how I was expressing my gender identity. For many years I had realised that the gender I was living and functioning... Continue Reading →
