I am a poet, a lover and a mother. I am passionate about people and about words (and like nothing better than having both in the same room.) I am in about my third re-invention of character and career. In my 20s I wanted to be a journalist, in my 30s I wanted to be a psychologist, in my 40s I wanted to be a pastor – now I think I might just like to go back to being a writer and an editor, but please don’t stop me dreaming of being something else as well! Most recently I became a granny – and I just love the license that gives me to be even more eccentric than in my youth (see Introducing the good-enough-granny.) I am good at lots of things and expert at very little – but that’s okay because I LOVE LEARNING. Today I had a good day because I learned how to post this blog – so who knows what new pleasure tomorrow might bring?

    Hello Jill,
    A friend sent me your ” Protea ” card with good wishes for my birthday. I love it!
    Any chance of buying some cards from you on your web? Do you have an outlet in Cape Town?

      Thanks Vivien! I don’t right now, but I would love to get an outlet there if you can suggest any quirky art galleries or independent bookshops ( the bigger shops buy bulk overseas.) You can certainly buy online and I can post them to you. The normal size ones like the Protea usually sell for R25 and large square ones for R30 – we can do a discount for a bulk purchase and they easily can be posted – I post them to a gallery in Ramsgate. You can see some other designs on my FB page https://www.facebook.com/WordsAndWonder/?fref=ts – if you click on “photos”, you will see poppies, butterfly, sunset, eagle, colourful people – but there are a lot more – you have inspired me, I will set up better display for online sales πŸ™‚ You can email me at lifeisorchestral@gmail.com Kind regards, Jill

    Hello Jill, it’s good to have found your blog. I’m currently slowly savouring ‘Strung between heaven and earth’ and loving both your art work and beautiful poetry. I’ve just subscribed to your site and look forward to seeing and reading more. Blessings, Joy πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œ
