Can you believe we have made it to the end of yet another month? The seventh of 2022! The year is going too fast for my liking. I want to grab time and hold it in my hands, slow it down, so I can enjoy more of every day. With all the work I have put into myself in the past year, and the strength I feel now, I want to hold back time to savor this feeling.
Time runs its course, and all we can do is make the best of the time we have.
As always, at the end of every month, I share my work from Medium, and this time there are ten posts for you to enjoy. Did you know ten is the sum of the first three prime numbers (2, 3, 5)? I bet the title makes sense now, right?!
Remember, if you sign up for a year on Medium, you can read everything and anyone on the platform for less than $5 per month! Just follow my link to support me and other writers.

I started with this when I had 100 articles – a mix of fiction, true life, book reviews and photography – on Medium, did it again after 200 articles. And of course I had to do it again when I reached 300. I guess you see the trend, right?!
Labels And Confidence — Who Am I?
I saw a prompt – Who Am I? – on Know Thyself, Heal Thyself, one of the Medium publications I write for, and wanted to share who I am now, after seeing a life coach for a year.
Five Barrels In A Cellar
This story appeared on Redemption, because it transgressive fiction, but the publication Tantalizing Tales set the prompt – cellar. After being bullied and trying to defend herself, an accident happened. That was what Tamsin told herself, but twenty years later it wasn’t accidents anymore.
The Birds Will Always Sing
I love sharing my photography as much as I like to go out with my camera and snap pictures. In this post I share photos of birds, some made at the zoo, others in our own garden.
Scarred: Not The End Of The World
On the publication QuickTalk (I haven’t written for them yet), I saw prompts which sparked stories from my life; memories. One prompt was ‘my scar’ and in this piece I share how I look at my scar, and what it means to me.

We All Need A Weekend Break From Time To Time
A month ago I signed up for Audible, and I don’t think I will ever regret it. I knew I loved listening to books, but Audible has really enhanced this experience. This book – The Long Weekend by Gilly Macmillan – is the first one I have listened to on Audible.
I’m Dying For Summer
On the publication, Redemption, the prompt ‘Dying for Summer’ caught my attention. We all love the warmer temperatures, and some of us really die for summer, right? In this transgressive story, they did.

Skinny Dipping: Not Taboo Anymore
Have you ever skinny-dipped? I love naked swimming, but there were times I chickened out. In this post, I share my experiences with being naked in a swimming pool, something I still do frequently.
Doel, A Ghost Town In Belgium
Years ago, my husband and I made a trip to a ghost town in Belgium, called Doel. It was a strange sensation to walk there, seeing all the houses boarded up and covered in graffiti. But, we found more than just that.
