My Filter Is Better Than Yours

#filter #nofilter #allthefilters. Currently I’m loving a good filter – all the photos on my phone now seem to be layered in as many filters as I can manage without making landscape shots of the London suburbs look like it's the Bahamas. (It’s never that bright where I live). In fact, [...]

Meditating on Meditating

Meditation – it’s the buzz word I’m trying to integrate into my life….”Cup of tea and a meditation?”…. “Game of Tennis then a post match meditate?” I’ve always had this desire to see myself as a really experienced meditator, so I can talk about the benefits, feel the benefits and then eventually meditate on [...]
