Each Autumn, your tuberous roots stretch their arms after their long summer sleep. Your wooded stems become rich and strong with purples and green, with new life. And each year, as naked trees stand against darkening skies and evenings drawing in, your blooms rise above your heart-shaped leaves, bringing a bold defiant cheer to the leaking conservatory of my aging grandmother’s house. These past years, her arthritic fingers, in last vestige of their nimble past, deftly trimmed you of fading […]
It isn’t possible to promise those we love continuous health, happiness, prosperity or freedom from heartbreak. But In the end, all our loves need, is us. Our grace. We are the thread that binds them to life’s joys.
Do you remember? You had been away for what seemed like an age. Your assignment was on its third extension. We had been apart over a year. You wrote me a letter. It has stayed with me, always. I treasure these passages, in particular – they are pages from our love’s holy book. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My love, the distance between us is but a single breath. Think of this… Empty train When I was working in London, traveling into the city […]

Yet how thoroughly it has dyed my heart ~Lady Kasa, Japan, mid 8th century People have been using the medium of art to represent and explore their spiritual connection with their world, for over 35,000 years.

‘human relationships are as vast as desert’ ‘…stones, even, are smoother for the dust’ – Patrick White, from the novel Voss (1957) The place in which we spend more time than any other, is our thoughts, our inner world. It is there that we constantly converse with ourselves, from infancy to death. It is there that we suffer; unspoken traumas, ancient anxieties and caustic self-blame – all dust storms in our deserts of heart and mind that shape and […]
Every day, we are bombarded with media images of ‘success’. Cars, houses, holidays, clothes, jewelry, fashion and technology accessories. The more success, the more romance. Success is the pathway to true love and all of its satisfactions. But this story bears little or no resemblance to most real relationships. In them, we struggle with the gritty challenges of work, financial pressures, child-raising, exhaustion and banality. We endure the inevitable conflicts that arise when people live and suffer through life’s challenges […]
Essence and our writing Our single most important goal in the writing we do for our clients is to capture and express the essence of the people concerned: we tune into what is unique about you and the love you share, your nature; we follow the compass of your heart. This is not poetry as ornament or academic pretension. This is the poetry of your life, the unique and beautiful heat and heart of your life. This is you, […]
This was our vision, the writing team of WeSpeakYourHeart – to take our immense personal love for each other into the world, to celebrate and enrich the connections between people, to say the words that need to be said, and in our small way start ripples that join to other ripples and together, with heart and with luck, to help give our world and its people, the chance that they deserve
