Attempting to write about myself in third person is amusing at best and difficult at worst. And yet an About page is where I have been advised to attempt to reach out and connect with you, my dear friend, reading this, to give you an idea of me – as a person.
Although how this can be achieve solely with words, is hard to say. For aren’t we all multi-dimensional creatures – with the ability and desire to present our best selves to however it may suit that the story be told?
Anyhow, in order to do this, objectively, without any risk of conjecture. I figured it best to it based on the following sub-headings (organised creature that I am). If there are any parts to my tale that you wish me to elaborate or questions that you desperately need an answer to, or that you might kindly think me suitably qualified – feel free to contact me on FB, or via the Contact page.
About Li-ling’s …
Passions for the finer things in life have been described as the staple of a Capricorn’s nature – and this Li-ling can attest to be true. However far beyond passions of a physical nature, Li-ling is a genuinely recovering Type-A personality and although it has gotten her far in life, she recognises that there is far, far more to Life than the competing hamster-wheel it is bound to be for Type-A’s.
She enjoys swimming and yoga when opportunity permits beyond the constant and routine finger exercises on her Macbook Pro. She is a big fan of the meeting point between classical and techno music and loves listening to good music – which is of course, entirely based on personal taste and moods at the time of listening.
She loves roses and rose scents, whether it’s because of the complexity of it petals or simply because it reminds her of Yardley Rose-scented talcum powder, so loved by her grandmother, she is not sure and hasn’t quite figured it out.
The funny thing about experience, as Li-ling has found is that, when you’re young, you don’t believe it at all necessary to living well, ‘The world is your oyster…’ and all that; but as time marches on, and life – well, it happens, and experience, seems to be the only sane binder that one can point to and say, ‘Well it’s like wine, it gets better with age’.
Some truths she has gathered and lived, through life experiences include
however you define it to be, is the meeting place between vision, inspiration and everything you believe you need to give for it.
A life well-lived,

The journey of my dreaming Takes me places I’ve not yet been Familiar landscapes and far off beauty Rugged terrain where adventures beckon Steep cliffs and sandy banks, Mountain edges and splashing falls Breath-taking vistas I see them all The journey of my dreaming Beyond the views my eyes can see My heart feels a […]
Life is meant to be easy Like the dew that settles upon the morning grass And the light, breathless snowflakes as they drift down from above Life is meant to be easy Like a river heading out to sea, There is no undercurrent, simply floating on the surface Letting it all be Life is meant […]

Just for a moment today, Look back. Look back, Through the winding paths and Pot-holed, cracked pavements Through the thorn bushes and The occasional sweet-smelling rose Look back and see Just how far you’ve come Despite all those detours and false starts In spite of the detractors and nay-sayers Against the billowing wind and howling […]

You are embracing the worthiness of your Self, You are living up to the expectations of the Universe for a wonderful, joyful life, You are, […]
Beyond the heroes and crime fighters, Beyond the news of tremendous feats that pulsates its way around the world, Beyond the telling and retelling, stories of ancient strength and power, There lies an unknown, unspoken tale of bravery barely acknowledged, seldom told. Of the mother, who braves the gut-wrenching, heart-stopping fear, of realising, she can […]
