A Homage to Creativity

posted in: Gardens 0

Today we went on an outing to the Majorelle Gardens; our usual way of ‘being a tourist’ is to run through or past the places of history…

But today we joined the queue, which happened to be a rather a lovely place to stand… It was a hot hot day in Marrakech, and fine showers of water sprayed over the wall to cool us…

The gardens are quite literally a work of art, created by the painter Jaques Majorelle. It took him forty years to complete…

Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé discovered the Jardin Majorelle in 1966, during their first stay in Marrakech and saved it from being turned into an hotel…

They undertook a restoration of the gardens, in keeping with the vision of Jaques Majorelle… And the gift of their passion to us is a delight to wander through, away from the constant buzz and energy of the City…

We enjoyed the tranquility, the sound of moving water, lilies floating and golden fish on a constant swirling journey; the greenery reaching high, rustling in the breeze, the birds chirping  and the splendour of many cacti… We turned a corner to be greeted by a building, bright blue, vibrant colours, and sat for awhile amongst the many other tourists enjoying the experience.

Creativity for us to enjoy, and be inspired by…

We all create with our every breath, we are creativity in motion… And in seeing the manifestation of the passions of others, it can lead us fully into the true expression of our own heart.

Creativity of others can speak to us all, inspire us and access the spark within us of our own truth.

Truth is never jealous or envious of the creativity of others, it simply recognises the energy of the soul and responds.



I have been running all of my life – it feels I was born to run. In the running step I experienced freedom and my true expression. I came to see that I needed to ‘get out of the way of myself’ and let my energy flow through the running step; allow it to express itself in the dance and the motion of running.  I ran for England and GB for some years. My first international was in 1979, a three mile cross country race; and I continued to run at international level until 1993. Two of my best results were first place in the Dublin City Marathon in 1985 and 7th place woman, 3rd British woman in the 1986 London Marathon in a time of 2.36.31, which gained me selection for the Commonwealth Games.

As a little girl I ran barefoot for many years, and then I put on shoes to race around the world. Fifty years later I am travelling the world as a nomad with my husband Anadi and I have taken off my shoes and I am running barefoot again….
