I started my creative philosophical writings some years ago and started my blog  TWILIGHT TO SUNSET.

I really enjoy this kind of writing, sharing my thoughts, although I need a clear head and tracts of time.  

Much of my earlier writing was done in Bed after a workday and I found it relaxing yet exciting and stimulating.

My process was to pick a topic and go from there.  I began with an extrapolation on the couplets from Desiradata.  This has been interrrupted but I hope to return to it one day again soon    

I believe everyone has some particular work or purpose in life. Mine is a desire to be useful, supportive and caring, to contribute to leaving my world a better place.

I am passionate about the benefits of Aromatherapy.
I invite you to experience the benefits of the Aromatherapy Advantage products for pure and natural relief for many day-to-day ailments – physical and psychological.


Life is an unpredictable adventure.  We know not what the future holds – thankfully – and we cannot change what has happened in the past – so we are left with a precious gift:  the present.  You cannot touch it, you cannot see it, you can only feel.  So fleeting but often so momentous.  

We blindly believe that tomorrow will become today – each day – a  point that only becomes questionable when we have to face our mortality or the approaching mortality or degeneration of a loved one.

That is when we realise the truth behind “wasting time” and often want to live a more meaningful life where we give something back.

It becomes important to take the time to live the best life you can, doing what is important to you and those who are important to you.

Go fly a balloon and smile.

The Retirement I envisaged for myself is radically different from the  reality.

Partly this has been brought about by the Covid Pandemic causing a complete muddle of routine and plans.

Partly because I have some people dependent on me for support and sustenance.

And finally because I have decided to pursue my dream of helping people through my Clinical Aromatherapy – Aromatherapy Advantage – and have started my business selling my hand blended Aromatherapy Advantage products as described on the website.

The most exciting, challenging, frustrating and satisfying element has been the building of this website.  It is not perfect yet, there are still a few technical glitches, but it has been the most stimulating achievement in a long while.  Overall I am very pleased with the result, and I am learning new things every day.

Many is the time when I am crafting the content, that time slips by like the turning tide;  I just get so focused and engrossed.
