About me

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

Turn, turn, turn!

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm - I used a candle for the white parts of the gulls. You can freely apply colour over it, where the candle wax is, it stays white.

Seagulls (in the family Laridae) and an Arctic Tern (Sterna paradisaea) waiting their turn for a morsel of bread. One of my favourite past-times, watching seagulls… These gulls were hanging out at a restaurant in St. Lucia (KwaZulu Natal, South Africa) and I was almost thrown out because I was feeding them!



  1. Oooh!! Loverly!! They are so special....

    1. Thank you, also one of (many) of my favourite birds Liz!

  2. Beautifully captured, Maree! They are so fun to watch. You made be giggle, you rebel you )

    1. Ha ha! Thanks PJ! I was also warned once on a boat-trip to the Scilly Isles - the gulls follow the boat all the way from Cornwall and I couldn't let them make the trip for nothing!
