The Thin Line That Leads Us

Rhiannon and I shared an office many years ago when we worked at the Open University. Both our lives have had many twists and turns since then. The Thin Line That Leads Us was a blog she started in 2005 when she left her academic job and husband in Sydney to return to the UK to be with Stu who she first met as a student.

Rhannons’s dad worked as a research scientist and she has many of his photos from his time in Antarctica..  This picture is from A Christmas Greeting.

She doesn’t blog on that one any more but has a new photography website at http://www.rhiannongeorge.co.uk

Bob Leckridge – Heroes not Zombie

Heroes not Zombies is a wonderful and thought provoking blog by Bob Leckridge who is a medically trained doctor living in Scotland. He was a GP for many years before retraining as a homeopath and now works at the Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital which is part of the NHS.

Bob started blogging several years ago and there are a huge number of posts on Heroes not Zombies about health, mindfulness and meditation, photography, homeopathy, life, nature, travels and more.

The thing I love most are his wonderful photos.  He has an eye for patterns and nature and notices beautiful things that many of us would miss. For an example see this recent post from here to here which starts with the story of a single hollyhock seed .Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)

Many of Bob’s photos can be found on flickr and are well worth a look.

Rachel the Vagabond Baker

I have very many talented friends with excellent blogs so will give some of them a plug on here. I have known Rachel and her partner Chris for years and they have quite an unconventional life. Most of their time is spent travelling or house sitting and  they have recently bought a fab demountable camper to live in. They are both photographers and I think the eye for a good picture is what makes this blog a real gem.

Vagabond Baker is not just a recipe blog..  but also a wonderful showcase for their extensive travels, photographs and unusual nomadic lifestyle.
