Geek Rage: AirPlay Devices!

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Don't get me wrong - I LOVE Apple's AirPlay. Being able to send music and video wirelessly from iPhone or Apple TV or AirPort Express is brilliant and so beautifully implemented. I love the whole ecosystem. Mirroring Mac screen or iPad screen onto a large screen via Apple TV has saved my neck on many occasions […]

Blogging break

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

I'm going to be taking a break from this blog for a while. Lots to do, lots to think about. Time to step back and concentrate on the non-virtual world for a while. Back soon!

Dawn is a feeling

Monday, May 28th, 2012

I am awake at 4 am. Sitting outside. Watching the dawn. The sky is beautiful. The birds are singing. I love the sound of sea gulls. It makes me so happy. My garden is a mess. Full of weeds. And yet there’s not a thing I would change about it. I don’t even want to […]

Let go of your dreams, girls! Goals are better!!

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

As little girls - and boys - we are taught to dream and to dream big. Whether that's fairy castles or great sporting victories, dreams are something that is ingrained in our upbringing. Sometimes in life the hardest thing is letting go of the fantasy and letting go of the dream, but there are times […]

e-family: The Seeds of Recovery

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

An update to my previous post about our little e-family since last writing: Interaction Well, I am pleased to say that the kids have plunged themselves into activities in the outside world. This is a happy discovery. Living the way we did does not seem to have had any impact on their ability to socialise and […]

Between sleep and waking

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Between sleep and waking I hear you turn beside me and feel soft breath upon my neck. Life's overwhelming warmth envelopes me.  Greedy, I turn to face you, waking myself, destroying the dream, and, with my eyes open, I greet the empty mourning of another day.   by Kathie Kingsley-Hughes

End of the e-Family

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

In so many ways this is the blog post I never wanted to write. And I can honestly say I never thought I would write it. In the middle of January Adrian told me he was leaving, suddenly, scarily, angrily. My world shattered. We have been married for 18 years and most of that was […]

New Year’s Resolutions

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

This year I've made a couple or three New Year's resolutions. They aren't usually very effective for me - the beginning of the year is a busy time so it's easy to forget your plans before you've really had a chance to begin. This year my resolutions are to: 1. Get back into the gym […]

Entry London Screenwriting Festival Film Challenge

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

This past week I have had the very great honor to be involved in making a short film for the London Screenwriting Festival Film Challenge. For me this meant having to be in front of the camera (yes that is me!) and trying to direct my rather offbeat vision for this script. Adrian made an excellent DOP, […]

"Hand-Span/Brain-Pan" by Kathie Kingsley-Hughes As I sit, my elbows resting on the desk, eyes tight shut, head-in-hand, I am struck by the narrow width of my temples between my thumb and forefinger. Is this all I am? The entirety of my being contained within a hand-span? I could live without ear, leg, appendix, arm, bowel, […]
