Be like Jane.

Every day we see signs telling us what to do: stop, slow down, keep out, watch for children. Sometimes we heed the warning signs, sometimes we don’t.

A spoonful of sugar

“Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down…”   I’m going to take a break from talking about child sexual abuse (yay!) and channel my inner Mary Poppins for the day. Imagine me cheerful, sing-songy, dancing around with my tote and umbrella, butterflies and birds chirping around my head. It’s a stretch, but … Read More
