This may seem like old news, to those of you who follow me on instagram, or facebook, but now seemed like as good a time as any to say that Clare Barker Wells Photography is now officially open for business! It feels pretty huge saying that, especially as only two years ago I’d never picked [...]

Community

The word ‘community’ brings images to my mind of people stood talking over garden fences, children playing in the street together. It suggest to me people who share a common locality. Community though, has become a lot less about locality, in the era of the internet, hasn’t it? It’s become more about common interests, or [...]

Weekend Wonderings

Alice sent me this brilliant TED talk, and said that it might be interesting for the AOW community. And I think she was right. I think it is so relevant to so many of us…nearly every single one of us is either in our twenties, or is just out of them. I watched it a [...]

Two hearts.

If the cliche is true, if home really is where the heart is, then I currently have two homes. Or two hearts. Or something. That sounded more eloquent in my head than it looks typed here. My home is here in KL. It’s where I live my life, it’s where I am settled. It makes [...]

Weekend Wonderings

My two favourite things (bar Andy and Emmi, and mini-eggs, obviously), are books and photography. Which explains why I love The Underground New York Public Library. It’s a simple concept – the person who runs the blog is capturing candid images of people reading on the underground in New York. I guess you could say [...]

Notes on motherhood: PND, broccoli, and saying yes.

It’s happened. I’ve become one of those mothers. I now think of other mothers and think how unlucky they are, because they didn’t get Emmi. Because, I mean, how could any child be better than Emmi? See? The thing is, I feel like it’s ok for me to feel like that, that it might actually be [...]

An anniversary of sorts

Tomorrow, it will be a whole bloody year since we took a deep breath and pressed ‘publish’ on our shiny new blog, with our shiny new name. Doesn’t that seem crazy? I can’t believe that was a year ago. It’s been a pretty wonderful year for us. True, we’ve not yet taken over the world, [...]

Notes From KL

It’s not snowing here. I’m pretty sure that it’s unlikely to snow here in the foreseeable future. That means that I am insanely jealous of all of the facebook and twitter pictures of everyone having snowfights and sledging. In retaliation, I shall post pictures of Emmi, playing with the hosepipe taken on the same day [...]

One.

Zero to Three. Headlong into the unknown. Joy. Pain. Excitement. Adoration. Love. Late nights and early mornings mingle, tangle together incomprehensibly.  The world is far away, behind a mist. You glow, like a beacon through the fog, giving me direction. Fatigue. Blur. Existing. Surviving. Managing. Love like no other; fierce and honest and true. Inhaling [...]
