A bit about me

Hi – I’m Helen. I’ve started this blog as a way to tease out some ideas, share and connect with others.


I’m a voracious reader, a sporadic gardener, someone who exercises in fits and starts, and I’m always on the lookout for systems and approaches to make life run more smoothly. I’m a wife, mother, daughter (and grand-daughter- still!), sister, friend – and an urban planner. I ponder a lot – possibly too much at times. These come together to make me who I am.

I live in Melbourne. I love where I live, but I also love the opportunities to explore and discover new places. I am also fascinated by other people – the diversity of views, of talents, of stories – and how this plays out in how we live our lives. I hope it also gives me some insights about myself too.

These are some of the things I hope to explore further with this blog. I hope you will join me on this journey!

    1. Thank you so much, Lisa! Lovely comments from you, and I’m glad you’ve found my blog too – it means I’ve seen yours too (and I’m equally impressed!) Just signing up now – cheers, Helen


  1. Hi Helen. Thanks for sharing your blog by connecting to me through our word of the year Trust. I think this year will be a challenging one with a funeral this coming week and more illness in the family. I also need to renew my relationship with God. A new job and an old job and pulling from both means Trust in my gut, my family’s guidance and God.
    Thanks for the time you have put into this post. Look forward to connecting through your lovely thoughts and words. Jackie


    1. Thanks Jackie. It sounds like a testing time for you – my thoughts and prayers with the funeral this week, and balancing competing objectives. One (of many) good things with God is that he’s there even if we’ve been drifting away – I hope you’re able to reconnect and that helps with the many challenges which I’m sure (because I’m trusting in you) that you’ll find a way through. I hope the illness resolves itself too X
