‘A tra poco’ lets take a short break, from destroying our planet, listen to those that will inherit it, learn from the indigenous cultures of the past and see the future in a better way, let’s do more, let’s act, let’s ask those that are in ‘power’ to act on our behalf, repeatedly, or let’s change them out for those that will, let’s stop this circus of stupidity that values today over tomorrow.

September 8, 2019 - Army of Ink Smacked Bottom


Even a smacked bottom deserves a seat .

We all start out worthy little humans. Deserving of love and care – and our own special seat. But sometimes things go wrong. Don’t go to plan. You make mistakes. Maybe you don’t turn out like you thought you would. Or how others thought you would. Sometimes other people treat you badly. And it’s catchy because you end up treating yourself badly too. 

And then this little girl taps you gently on the shoulder and sits you back down in your goodness. And with this kind gesture, you are reminded of the worthy little human you started out as. And so you put the brakes on all the punishing , beating yourself up business. And reintroduce that little human to the love and care that is, and always has been, most definitely deserved.

September 1, 2019 - Anxiety Is A Thief

Some days absolutely kick your arse, things go wrong, or worse just not quite right, seemingly one thing after the other, you feel like as the song says, “If it wasn’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.”  As the minutes tick past it feels like a grindstone on your will power and then the doorbell rings and it’s anxiety, but anxiety doesn’t bring anything.  Anxiety is a thief.  Those are the days you learn to breathe, those are the days where we are really tested.  Those are the days you just get through, even the nights are long!  The strongest people know where they have been broken, so there is tomorrow, bring it on, tomorrow we will fly again.

August 28, 2019 - Army of Ink Tired of Nice

Army of ink tired of being nice

She grew tired of being so nice.

When you’re a nice person who is caring and kind and considerate of other people’s feelings. Generous with your time and heart.  It’s quite a blow when you come into contact with people who aren’t nice.  People who think only of themselves.  They’re rude and bad mannered.  Thoughtless and ungrateful. Sometimes cruel and hurtful. Careless with their words – and the feelings of others. It can knock you flat. Leave you sick in the belly and wobbly in lip.

But then you get back up and learn to be a bit more economical with your niceness. Careful about the amount of good energy you give to certain people and ensure it goes where it can do the most good. And when you feel how bad the opposite to nice feels, you realise just how important it is in the world.
