My first blog post ever!

This is the post excerpt.

Hi I’m Paula

and just exploring ways of recording thoughts and experiences on life’s journey


To start with I am sharing a couple of quotes I keep coming back to

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing. A schedule defends from chaos and whim. It is a net for catching days.  Annie Dillard in The Writing Life

and this poem ‘Days’ by Philip Larkin

What are days for?
Days are where we live.
They come, they wake us
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:
Where can we live but days?
Ah, solving that question
Brings the priest and the doctor
In their long coats
Running over the fields.

I am forever exploring and learning about life with God in the ordinary. I work full time as a university technician and union rep I am into science and music (playing the violin) as well as being involved in a number of activities in our local church in Eastbourne. This past year or so has brought many new challenges and opportunities with more time at home during Covid lockdowns and finding new ways of keeping in touch with family and friends. I have been reading much and also attempting to write a book based on the theme of hope which is something we all need for our life’s journey. It has been an adventure in itself exploring the way I have come in life and the encouragements I’ve had on the way through the good times and the times when the pathway has proved more difficult. There is much to be thankful for each day.
