Hi. I’m Shannyn,
Introducing myself is awkward; I feel like a living contradiction. I have two very different sides to my personality. On the one hand I am a home body and love to potter around the house creating little spaces of peace and beauty. I am an avid reader with a passion for the written word who also enjoys baking. I could spend hours cardmaking and creating little bits and pieces. I also enjoy exploring the metaphysical and have established a daily meditation and yoga practice.
The other side of me enjoys exploring the world. I love to travel and find being in nature a great source of peace. I love to hike. I have explored our great national parks here in Australia. Some of my favourite walks are in the Blue Mountians near Blackheath and Katoomba. I have hiked, trekked and tramped in England, Scotland, France, New Zealand, Canada and Nepal. As well as drawing great strength from being in the bush and the “great outdoors” I also gain great energy and peace by the sea. Nothing recharges my batteries like an hour walk on one of our gorgeous east coast beaches.
I find inspiration in the most unlikely places at times. It was these little pockets of inspiration and a desire to write that led me to create this blog. I know one should have a theme for a blog; perhaps mine will evolve as I explore, muse and share my ramblings.
