By Rowena Ronson | January 29, 2021

‘Normal’ – what does that even mean?? RJR:  I am a great lover of words and I truly respect the power of their use. We create our entire mind’s landscape with words, and what meaning we put to them. ‘Normal’ has never been a word that has gelled with me, in fact, quite the opposite.…

What If…

By Rowena Ronson | January 5, 2021

What If… By Rowena J Ronson and Nigel Summerley RJR: What if the virus is here to teach us something? What if everyone learnt to deal with something in their lives that they were just not ready to deal with before? What if now is that time when we just can’t carry on as we…

Living For Today

By Rowena Ronson | January 2, 2021

Living For Today by Rowena J Ronson and Nigel Summerley RJR: ‘Living in the moment’ was a term that many were using before the pandemic. Be present – we told ourselves. We only have today. Don’t live in the past, or the future. Be in the Now. But this past year has changed that a…

By Rowena Ronson | January 1, 2021

Time After Time

By Rowena Ronson | December 9, 2020

Time After Time by Rowena J Ronson and Nigel Summerley NS: What time is it? It may be noon here but it is midnight somewhere else. And in a galaxy far, far away it may be something quite different to half past three or a quarter to six… But all of those places exist at…

Making Peace … with viruses!

By Rowena Ronson | November 15, 2020

Making Peace… with viruses! by Nigel Summerley and Rowena J Ronson RJR: I am rewatching the film Everest at the moment. It is a thought-provoking account of the journey to the summit on 10 May 1996. One of the climbers reflects to the journalist that it is not about competition as the mountain always has the last word……

Personal Space – The Final Frontier!

By Rowena Ronson | November 2, 2020

Personal Space – The Final Frontier by Nigel Summerley and Rowena J Ronson Image: Introspection RJR: Do you remember when talking about ‘personal space’ was a thing? I remember when I was in my teens and twenties, we used to kid around about invading each other’s space, and lines like ‘get out of my space’ were…

The Delusion Of Certainty

By Rowena Ronson | October 8, 2020

The Delusion Of Certainty by Nigel Summerley and Rowena J Ronson NS: In the midst of the pandemic, It seems a constant refrain – and one that is growing louder – that nothing is certain anymore. Were we lucky to have “predictable” lives before all this? Or is the continuing uncertainty actually a jolt pushing…
