It’s just over a year since my diagnosis with CFS/ME and during a stroll along the beach this afternoon I reflected on how I couldn’t even manage a walk outside the door at one point.
The main thing that came to mind though, was an image I’ve had which helped me to visualise what was going on and what I needed to do.
I saw a cliff edge that I had fallen over and that I’d caught on a ledge a short way down. I now had a choice, I...

That word would have made me run a mile in years gone by, before I had worked on my adversity to anything that smacked of religion, but that’s a whole other story.
So altars, what do I mean by that?
I mean a space given over to you, your mediation, creativity, joy and passion. A space you can call your own and personalise with things which bring you pleasure and remind you of what you love.
It can be a shelf , window sill, dressing table top,...
