Where do we go when we disappear?

Tags: , , , |

Richard Pilnick Where do we go when we disappear? What risks would you take if you weren’t so attached to your name, face, physicality, reputation? Can you imagine being known simply as an imprint of kindness and goodwill? Three things in my life keep these questions alive on a daily basis. The first, having a

Exposure: Authenticity in the Digital Age

Tags: , |

Back in the days when photography development was manual, the exposure process was a mixture of excitement, patience and instinct. Timing was everything, and knowing 'when' meant the reward of imagination becoming reality...it meant discovering depth and line and a spectrum of hues and tones. I know these things not because I ever mastered the

Beyond Greatness

Tags: , , , , , , |

A memory of my five year old self exists, sitting in my mother’s giant eggshell yellow Pontiac station wagon on the way home one day from kindergarten. “What do you want to be when you grow up?” my mother asked. I responded innocently (if not a wee bit precociously), “I want to be Great!” Great,

Life on the Spectrum

Tags: , , , , , , , |

Until recently, if someone had told me I was 'on the spectrum', I would have thought they were giving me a compliment about being colourful, vibrant...dare I say kaleidoscopic. I had never heard of this phrase before, and for me it conjures up images of a rainbow. Over the past several months, however, I have

Life in Crisis

Tags: , , , |

It's a beautiful sunny day. I wave to my darling young son and his father as they ride off on one bicycle to school. It sounds like a picturesque family portrait worthy of Rockwell, yet we all know too well that any moment the silent storm brewing underneath could rear its ugly head. I am

It Takes Two

Tags: , , , , , |

A few years ago after receiving a new liver via transplant, the doctors said to 'give it time' when I asked how long it would take to recover. At first, I had plenty of time; I spent two months in the hospital recovering from one complication after the other, and despite the lost hours watching

Open letter to God

Tags: , , , , , , , |

Dear God, It's hard to believe this is the first official letter I have ever written to you. I'm sorry it took me so long to pen one until now, it's just that I've been a little busy. No excuse, I know, and don't worry, my mother didn't put me up to it. I figured

Tune in to Jo Good

I was delighted to join the 'good-time girl' Jo Good on the BBC on June 27th, at 3:10pm 94.7fm radio. We discussed Rolfing, bodywork and my liver transplant! Listen here.

Raw Fairies: The Story behind the Mini B Cleanse

Tags: , , , , , |

Read the Raw Fairies full review I've got to be honest. As a general rule, I don't subscribe to detoxes or cleanses, having experimented with many ways of cleansing the body from the inside out, both naturopathic, and prescribed. When I was younger, I enjoyed the challenge, the observation of the mental shifts and changes,

Integration: Post Transplant Life Eight Months On

Tags: , , , , , , |

It's hard to believe it has been eight months since my life changing operation; on September 26, 2013 I was given a second chance at life after receiving a liver transplant. Every day I thank God to have another day on this planet to explore, to grow and to provoke positive change in myself and
