New Poetry Book!

Some time ago whilst working on my Artist Portfolio, it came to me that my artwork paired with selective poems would make a great book.

I love poetry as I find being on the go all the time, that time to myself is a real treat, and usually I am tired when I finally get to that stage. Anyways, one of my favourite books is Life by Paulo Coehlo and is simply a collection of poems for different topics.

It is so relaxing to either sit in the sunshine and read a few short, but meaningful poems or in the winter months to have a special tea and to enjoy your poetry in front of an open fire.

Anyway, I have been busy working away to compose some unique poetry for this book, and I can honestly say my imagination went into overdrive in terms of the topics and feelings I addressed. I have now written so many that even I cannot remember the words perfectly. However, last night for the first time, I decided to test out my book with a few friends as we had a girlie night. I ended up having requests for another, and another as they nearly made me read the whole book. I looked at my friends faces and I had clearly stirred the emotions in them, which was great to know that people can relate to what I am writing. 

One friend has "booked me" to narrate a poem at her wedding, some time in the future as she is not even engaged yet. However, the poem that really got them choked was not one that I had expected, but it seems it is definitely one for the ladies. It is called "Meeting Mr Phillips", so watch this space as hopefully the manuscript will be complete very soon!

Robots versus Humans - Who will seize Victory?

It may seem like a robot rebellion is a bit farfetched at this moment in time, if you gauge the current technology. Still, while the walking, talking 'tin head' is still a long way off, there are many uses of robotic technology in place today. Two examples are driverless cars and prosthetic limbs. While the former threatens to take millions of jobs from the market, you could argue the latter promises to return amputees to the jobs market. But could either machine kill or injure humans?

Why Endangered Animals are Important to the Ecosystem

There is no doubt that all the structures on this planet connect and interact with each other to maintain a subtle balance and order. Although many scientists do consider this paramount, equally many people within our populations fail to consider why endangered animals are important to the ecosystem. 

It іѕ lіkеlу аn ecosystem with multiple species іѕ more ѕtаblе thаn one that has lost several species, particularly keystone species which are pillars of the whole ecosystem.

Are Food and Health Close Relatives?

Nutrition advice is hard to get away from in this day and age. However, with so many fad diets and conflicting opinions, which nutrition tips can be trusted? Is there a strict dietary regime supported by scientific hard data that we should all be following to live the fullest life we can? Or is nutrition inconsequential compared to other lifestyle choices such as exercise and lack of stress? Let’s take a non-biased look at food’s effect on the body and consider just how much the two are linked.
