The initial focus I had for this blog was yoga, which has been a fundamental element of my life for the last twenty years. However, since then my writing has drifted more towards the natural world and our relationship to it. I am particularly interested in the changing of the seasons, trees and the beach/coastline, and aim to explore these themes, in addition to yoga and anything else that inspires me, in this blog. I called it ‘Inspired Cup’ because I love drinking tea and coffee, and also wish to make the blog a place of positivity in a world which can often make you feel less than cheerful about life. That’s not to dismiss the genuine suffering which exits, but to try and remember that the world we live in can also be a place of beauty, love and opportunity.
