From Schoolday Playtime to Creative Mentors

I hope you’ve had a wonderful week.

Are you looking forward to the weekend?

As much as I appreciate that TGI Monday Feeling – I LOVE the end-of-the-week vibes.

When I was in primary school, my favourite teacher, Mr Lynn, used to always let us play games on a Friday afternoon.

I remember so clearly the joy of being allowed to go into the tiny games cupboard at the back of the classroom and pull out the boxes of Kerplunk, Buckaroo and Connect 4. 😍

Happy Days!

And today I’d like to relive that feeling with you, with a little end-of-the-week guessing game.

Would you like to play?!

All you have to do is read these clues and then guess the answer…


Interview Guest Guessing Game 

Over on the blog, I’ve just posted an interview with one of my early mentors. 

Clue #1: This person is the author of over 50 books – one of which was a godsend for me when I was raising two young boys with very little time/energy to write. 

Clue #2: This person has been pivotal in the work that I’m doing today – my beloved dharma sweet-spot

Clue #3: This person is cited as the founder of an entire branch of coaching. 

Clue #4: And finally, this fellow creative is esteemed by thousands around the world for an ever-growing range of workshops, resources and courses to help us navigate the challenges of creative living. 

(I’ve got the Paris Writing Workshop on my Artist Date Wishlist.)

So, can you guess who it is?!

If you’d like to guess before I share the big reveal, I’d love to hear who you think it might be!
