ME !  

I am a child of the Universe, Born a twin six minutes after my sister.  My parents had no idea I was in there until AFTER my sister was born. This was Once upon a time in the 1950’s when scans were not common place.  Sounds ancient does n’t it?  But although I have just past 60, I feel like my  journey is just beginning. Perhaps it is because I have looked up and around and realised I have not consciously made use of this thing called Life, nor given back to the world what I should.  And so there is an anxiousness to do something quick, to be able to say my life has been meaningful, before the sands of time run out.


I love to write, put my thoughts down, for as Forster said, “how can I know what I think unless I see what I say”.

So I write, essentially about my Encounters with myself, with others, and with my Lord.  The distinctions are not always clear.  More and more I find that they are all inter-twined.  When I encounter others, I am in some way encountering myself, and when I encounter myself, I encounter my Lord.

A favourite quotations captures this best:  “Oh unchanging God, help me know myself, that I might know you.”  St Augustine.

And so I started this ‘blog  – this open book into which I want to scribble my mind’s story.  If you turn the pages, I hope you enjoy it, for it is all I can share on cyber space – or as Chardin called it  “the noo-sphere”.

Ramblin’ Rose – a sweet memory. 

I am sure my Dad had no idea how I would turn out when he sang the lullaby to me, in a voice almost as glorious as Nat King Cole:   Ramblin’ rose, ramblin’ rose  …..Why you ramble, no one knows   …..

I can’t promise that anyone is going to love me or my ramblings but just as the Rose goes where the sun draws it … so too must I go … wherever The Son draws me. 


I would like to hear from you and hope you will share your insights and discoveries as we travel to our final destination, ‘whatever you conceive it to be .

I look forward to making the world a smaller place 🙂 for we are all Angels with one wing helping each other to fly.

Meanwhile, here is the glorious lullaby my Father sang to me.  ENJOY

  3. Hello Rosanne, thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such kind comments. Your blog is beautiful, I love the photographs and the soft rose colour of the background. Soothing and peaceful. I look forward to more of your posts. X


    • I am happy to accept the nomination particularly from one who makes the pursuit of wisdom the focus of her blog as wisdom has been ‘my delight’ too. I have also been inspired by you to seek it from elders around me so thank you both for the nomination and the inspiration. Will check in for the details :}

    • Am happy too. I look forward to reading your posts but could not find the usual follow button. Only the email subscribe. I was looking for follow button would send your posts direct to my reader? Ps Am browing on phone these days so maybe cant see it. Will check on my desktop over weekend.


      • I also have the boxes to check at the bottom of each post, is that what you mean? They show up on my phone, so maybe there was some glitch when you looked earlier — you’ll probably see them when you look again.
