Listening to Tara Moss being interviewed by Cass Moriarty, several things are apparent from the beginning, Cass has great questions, Tara is whip smart, totally engaging & a great author. Easily she shares her thoughts on favourite authors and why, as well as where to look should you be into great storytelling.
As Tara discusses her extensive research and how this influences character development with explicit detailing being a nod to excellence in the genre, as well as taking the journey with us, allowing luxurious embellishment in imaging the story as it unfolds. In person she is immaculate in detail, including ‘Wolfie’. Check @taraandwolfie on instagram for more info on her use and awareness raising on using mobility aids.
She is passionate about the genre of crime, keen for authenticity and promotion of our beautiful land and in ‘Dead Man Switch’ represents our illustrious sisters and their accomplishments in the era of the 1940’s. Hearing her read excerpts is charming in the most positive sense and leaves you hungry to hear what happens to Billie. Changing protagonist features for this novel, is timely genius.
I highly recommend any of her books, fiction or non fiction. You know you’ll find me reading with a cup, delighting in being transported into ‘Dead Man Switch’.
Keeping your Mindfulness in your pocket relates to the mobile oriented world we are in, for me it has to be mobile so it goes where I go, home, office, around the globe. As well as keeping it in play.
Our purpose in mindfulness is to support a healthy perspective, to creatively resolve, to stay calm, to think clearly from a neutral space within, to hear our inner voice over the roar of ‘them’, to keep the spirit engaged while we work towards our goals, to name a few. Especially in relation to expanding your mindset, adapting it to new terms, understanding a new and or conflicting perspective and to grow.
In light of having this practice at your disposal, even in times where space, time and maybe your regular routine are not available or if the old methods need new energy we have the following tips.
Don’t get caught in symantics. Let go of distractions.
Have options. Rather than one favourite practice, have a few options.
Give yourself some time alone.
Cut yourself a break, if you break routine, restart.
Breath deeply. Often.
Remind yourself that you are learning. It’s called practice for a reason.
You don’t have to be at Guru level. Wherever your at is completely fine.
Whatever the feelings or thoughts, they are temporary.
It’s okay to give yourself permission.
Carry with you an understanding that your worth grows when you water mindfulness, just like a very beautiful flower. It’s okay to be a work in progress. It is not necessarily naive, a mistake, or crazy, to address the shadow self. Mindfulness is an interpretation of if nothing else, the inner selves true feelings.
Sending you loads of chill vibes and inspiration in your walk into mindfulness. R.

This Winter is particularly mention worthy, as throughout the last year or so ‘loops’ have been being closed down, leading to normal patterns and trends within the market altering. In our season of Winter, it is wise to consider the above. As we seat ourselves within a quantum field, the energy patterns, seasons and working conditions shift, creating the need for us to be fluid and stepping lightly to take the curve balls, in stride.
Understanding the market calls on your experience, talking the tough topics and making decisions, often right now without a clear line of sight. This is where intuition has a major part to play in business be it trade or services. Relationships play here also, when we address political climates, the added pressure to terms, expectations and results can belie the on the ground terms, often leaving some business community members thinking they are missing something. The number one tip here would be to assess systems, as well as finance and keeping within a true budget or spending terms, depending on the amounts and time constraints around manufacturing, storage, shipping and growth.
Stepping into the Dead of Winter in a few weeks, for August, give yourself the opportunity to be timely over pushing or desperate for results. Engage a full spectrum of you when engaging in your future, be grounded, cultivate rationality and let some intuition flow in.
Wishing you and your business endeavours a fruitful winter, R.
