Composure

Yesterday I had that moment all aspiring writers have.  “Why I am doing this?  Am I even any good?  Am I just indulging myself? Should I even bother sharing my work?” I allowed myself some time to reflect on this, to ask the question without a furious search for the right answer.  Instead I rememberedContinue reading “Composure”

“What do you do?”, you say I know what you want to hear – I am a this, I am a that, I am employed, valid, salaried, PAYED As you are. You want me to make sense to you. You want me to be part of the world as you know it. Yet my fullContinue reading “My full time job”

It takes a (small) village…

The day after the UK Referendum in our old shop, Unit 1, something magical happened. We suddenly became very busy but not busy with sales, a different kind of busy as people from the local community came in throughout the day seeking friendship and connection, wanting to share the confusion of emotions they were feeling.Continue reading “It takes a (small) village…”

Transformation

This month has been busy. Not that the month before was not, but this is a different kind of busy. An up in the air, juggling, planning, head-scratching busy.  Because RSL Collective is changing. After over a year in Queens Parade, Willesden Green I have been blessed to connect with a number of complementary therapistsContinue reading “Transformation”

Pop Up Love

Saturday 13 February saw another successful community event for the burgeoning RSL Collective. For this we ‘borrowed’ the unit next door so we could spread (the love) along the first three Units of the freshly painted Queens Parade in Willesden Green. As I truly know (and am making a business from it), Valentine’s Day bringsContinue reading “Pop Up Love”

New Year Resolutions…moon rituals

Another Collective member post from one of our founding members from somewhere much more warm and tropical. She is currently creating a rich and varied life by following her dream, part of which involves writing.  Today’s post offers her own innate wisdom on aligning to and following the patterns nature offers to us, in thisContinue reading “New Year Resolutions…moon rituals”

Forgetful

A return to our previous format with another lesson learned (or rather underway) from Kirstie… I have just completed our first Introduction to Mindfulness course with Saffron. What a gift it has been especially through what has been experienced as stormy times. During the course Saffron shared with us the fundamental principles of Mindfulness beforeContinue reading “Forgetful”
