When I close my eyes and think hard I can still remember you stroking my forehead mom… 

I hope you like my Blog by Deborah Mitchell

You loved my afternoon tea hand cream, it smells light breezy and fresh.

You liked the way it made your hands look younger, the only thing that stoped them being dry. The Rich calming feel was not greasy. ..my hand snuggled so easily in yours.


For all moms out there I want you to have this gift around Mother’s Day of my beautiful hand wash and cream.


I made it for a 2 Michelin star hotel in BarcelonaAbac hotel Barcelona

So the beautiful tastes of the food was not over shadowed by the wash and cream in the bathrooms during the customers meals but actually enhanced the whole experience.

Now this hand cream is in the most prestigus in houses palaces and hotels the world over.

So I thought what would be the nicest thing I could give you for your moms this Mothers Day the gift of love.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

fc41906d971b82f276a3b3d319cb30a7

 

Today is ‘INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY’, as a teenager during the 1970’s, I experienced and witnessed sexism in all walks of life; during that time era I fought many personal battles – achieved the right for equal pay, choose to wear trousers at work, wear my hair down, little personal victories. In the early 90’s I stood up for a good friend who was being sexually intimidated and victimized in the work place, so she didn’t have to continue working in fear; I fought that battle and all the others with the help of BOOKS, WORDS AND A PEN. This years theme is #BeBoldForChange , lets stand up globally together to help women achieve their highest potential and unleash their ‘INNER-POWER’ where ever you are send LOVE to the World Lisa Jo Astle

Between Birth & Death

The Renegade Press

I need a moment to compose my thoughts before we get started. This post marks a turning point in the evolution of who I am as a man, so it’s important that I try not to screw it up…

There are certain topics that cause a writer a degree of apprehension whenever he (or she) approaches them. Trying to articulate how these concepts, realities, or situations alter your perceptions, or define who you are can be daunting.  For me personally, I have always struggled to broach the subject of death. I have battled against anxiety and depression in the past, and openly acknowledging that I will eventually die used to leave me feeling petrified.

Which explains why it has been a few months since we last talked about death here at The Renegade Press.

In that time, my life has changed more than I ever imagined possible.  I’m not the man that I once…
