What fuels me:
words, music, coffee
What ignites me:
faith, hope, love
Hello there. I’m Lou(ise), a creative artist living and working on the lands of the Turrbal people, in sunny south east Queensland, Australia.
I am constantly passionate about words, music, stories, and pretty much any way you can put them together. As a person of faith, this also flows out into ongoing prayer and worship practises, those I embrace myself and those I enjoy sharing with others.
Fave fun things to do involve coffee, watching comedy, stitching, debating the meaning of life and fixing the world with my friends, and hanging out with my cat and my hubby. Travelling again is high on my to do list as well!
My name is Louise and my friends call me Lou (subscribe to the blog, you can call me that too) I like to weave words whether rhyming or non the long ones are bounteous the short ones are 'bon' They dance through my mind in meandering shape sometimes I ensnare them sometimes they escape And some that I harness will find their way here to whisper, to shout and to sing to your ear
A story, a vision a dream or a word - if my scribbles can show what I've heard - These words yet so writhen deep tangled and twined I carefully, painfully slowly unbind As you, my friend, read them I trust you might see a glimpse of the Word Who has written in me
“Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten.”Natasha Bedingfield, Unwritten (2004)
P.S. If you’ve scrolled all the way to the bottom of the jar, you get to discover the reason behind maedharanael… basically, it’s Elvish for Louise. Apparently. Mind you, I’m much more like a hobbit than an elf… short, cuddly, love my food, chatty introvert, curly hair (sans straightening, which I usually endure, because in humid Brizvegas I rather resemble an alpaca without it). I do not, however, have hairy toes 😉
