The Thing About Music
When you hear the start of your favourite track,
Have you noticed what happens, that it takes you back…?
Back to a time, be it good or bad,
Your emotions will remind you, happy or sad…
That’s the thing about music, whether dancy or not,
You can make your own playlist, with your own number 1 spot;
You don’t need a rock star or a disco ball,
Close your eyes and feel ‘that’; it’s universal, for all.
In the blink of an eye, you’re transported away
To a first date, or a dance, or a holiday;
The rhythmn of music resonates far and wide,
Bringing people together, knocking down the divide…
A festival for the senses, the rhythm, the beat,
It moves you, it shakes you, you gotta move your feet!
As it vibrates through your body, your hips sway, your arms move,
Music’s all around us, let it in, feel your groove…
By Carol Cameleon 2017

Home and gift with a story with House of Juniper
When you persuse the Home of Juniper website, you come away with a cosy, fuzzy feeling. With an easy to navigate website, the products just lure you in.
And the philosophy behind Home of Juniper is one that adds value to the products as you browse and here is what it’s all about:
At Home of Juniper we sell a distinctive collection of products; including well-being ranges, kitchenware, stationery, home decor, textiles and gifts. Products are carefully chosen not only for their usefulness and beauty, but also for their provenance.
The ethics and values
The people at Home of Juniper research the products, support British designers and look at the stories behind the products. They have values and are also very reasonably priced.
You get an ethical feel from scrolling through their shop and I love the wellbeing section. So many candles! The people at Home of Juniper have been kind enough to give me a discount code to use and I’m deciding between:
The moon phase clock (I’m currently reading about the lunar cycles and astrology). That aside, this is so eye-catching!
Art Book Review ~ ‘The Impressionists’
Boolino got in touch to ask if I’d like to review a book about the group of artists known collectively as the Impressionists. And I thought it would be fun to read an arty book because our daughter had been learning about Van Gogh. (Though I didn’t realise he was an Impressionist until we read the book!)
