Who wants to understand everything - where there is curiosity there is a magic to be relished
Our dreams are a run through. Who wants to remember every emotion we have lived through that day on going to sleep. Who wants to relive those moments in all it's rawness. Images come to us in our dream time to recalibrate.
And there are string quartets playing salsa vibes dressed like Zebras.... that must've just been too much cheese before bed
Be curious my friends, there is wonder there to be had
I have friends who say ‘i’ve got your back’. That they are there for me, like family, bonded together, as if we are cut from the same cloth. When we meet new people there is that moment when you hope they will be the same, that their passion matches yours and shared values will play together to form something new. When i first hear musicians, see an artists work, listen to the spoken word, my heart leaps in recognition of this coming together. That moment of pure divine creativity. So it has been with a heavy heart that I have been seeing my way through July this year, a month in which i would have been touring the UK with my musician friends, introducing them to new audiences and creating something truly magical. A month in which, instead has been about waiting, beyond the depth of patience I thought I had, waiting for something to shift, to be seen, to be understood, to be aware of how others can kill an idea purely from not showing up as they think you are showing off. What is healthy competition? Surely that is celebrating all our gifts we have to give to the world? There is no such thing in my mind and my default is always to be present, to show up, to listen and to see how I might be able to help. So, now with August approaching we look to another festival, another celebration, another chance of making something real that has until now, just been an echo in my heart, an idea of how to connect people to become friends who feel like family.
Long before the hashtags were thought up, way before the campaign titles were first uttered we were generating a buzz for an industry that walks it's talk. For the past 23 years of my career, it's something I have done, do everyday and will continue to do after my last client leaves my final clinic, whenever that is.
Weleda and I are like old friends. You know the ones, always there for you even if you're not in touch all the time. Like the mate who offers you solace when you've partied a bit too hard or stayed up too late into the night and you're suffering the next day. When you're feeling all dried out from too much sun, tired out from too many hours working and muscles aching from pushing yourself for that extra finger hold at climbing club, that extra mile on the bike or running that final lap on the track.
I know I can rely on the brand for it's authentic ethics and sustainable supply chains which have been formed since 1921. How effortless it is to introduce people to it's soothing salves, heart warming bath milks and beautiful beauty balms.
So this summer and beyond I pledge to continue to promote a #cleanerbeauty regime and hope our film inspires you to ask questions of your providers that are key to us continuing to create a healthy wellbeing industry
