About & Contact

 This is a project about Life, Love and the Stories that weave them together. The idea was born from my experiences during a particularly difficult time in my life. I found I gained strength when people would share their stories with me; tell me about what happened to them and although that didn’t solve my problems it certainly made me feel that I wasn’t alone. They weren’t carefully crafted stories that were handed to me but just stories that were spoken – raw and real. And so,  I believe that we are all story tellers and each one of us has a story worth telling. They may be inspirational, painful, uplifting, entertaining or, if we’ve hidden them away, silent.  But I do also believe that while we live our stories, we  continue to live our lives. And for most of us it’s how we colour our stories that helps us create our own kaleidoscope through which we view our worlds.Thus, I can be both aware of the cries of my past but enjoy the Beauty of my present. I am a story catcher and I hope I can catch some of the stories in this blog, as well as capture the Colour and Beauty that individualises our kaleidoscope of Life.

Not to share our stories would be to keep butterflies in a jar. Some things need to be released and shared.

  5. So interesting and true. I immediately thought of a dreamcatcher, which I love and collect. And while dreamcatchers catch bad dreams, the principle is still the same to a degree. Very interesting too, since both my blogs deal with telling a story, just different ones and in different ways. Thanks for liking my post!
