Thanks so much for visiting!

Sharing my creativity to
entertain and challenge
as my mission is to make people THINK!

I am passionate about supporting one another,
ending violence at every level
and lessening my carbon footprint
Interested then please read my posts?

Know that we are ONE
and that community and connection
strengthen our resilience and inner kindness

Meet the Blogger” is my other blog to introduce
a diverse range of the awesome writers!
Contemplation ignited my creativity …

Lack of tech skills evolved in my blog becoming ‘Aroused’
shortened from my intended “Aroused by Arete”
as we all need morality [arête]
to progress on our paths

Please feel free to escape and recharge here
then leave your imprint in the form of
constructive comments and likes
but NO awards thank you!


I love nature in all her beauty!



  1. I totally agree with you that blogging is a healthy form of self expression Kate. I try to explain that to my non blogging friends but they just don’t get it! Love the post.

  2. You happened upon a post of mine and liked it…ergo my return the kindness clause is activated and I had to pop over and have a look at yours. Nice modus operandi, global citizen….I like that. It fits with my ethos that underneath the political angst people just want to get on. Blogging proves that too because I’ve made friends all over the world. Hope you don’t mind me following 🙃

  3. I believe you and I have been floating around the blogosphere for the same amount of time, give or take a month. I share a lot of your views – the understanding that war doesn’t bring peace, concern for the carbon footprint, the belief that we are one. I’m glad I finally got to meet you.

  6. Love your blog! Just wanted to say thank you to you Kate for supporting my blog from the very beginning – your comments meant a lot to me and were very encouraging and uplifting. Although today is my last post i will continue to enjoy your amazing blog


  7. Nice to meet you, Kate, I read your very kind, generous, supportive comments to Sara on “Relax, It’s all Write” blog. I was curious to learn more about you and your blog and I see how we have blogging friends in common. I love your philosophy “I am passionate about supporting one another.” I have subscribed to your blog and I look forward to reading and connecting.🙂 Erica

    I had Sara’s initial posts toggled on for reading all comments. This also gave me the pleasure of meeting you. 🙂 I only occasionally toggle on ‘all comments’ since the inbox rapidly fills up. And, yes, always a Mom, although, I do give her considerably more space and let her live her own life. The “love” part is always there. 🙂

  8. I’m so glad I discovered your blog since our values seem to be aligned. My family is committed to having a sustainable lifestyle, and my primary reason for blogging is to connect with others. I love nature, photography, and self expression too.❤️

  9. Hi Kate. Thanks for finding me because it led me here. Wondering thoughts and writing, so I had to follow. Besides, I love this line – “Please feel free to escape and recharge here” – because that’s what I also try to do. …. plus, I see some common faces here.
