A Random Diablog Laughter, Play and Poetry I am an IamBic Master Practitioner –  IamBe was the goddess of Laughter, Play and Rhyme,  I’ve written about her before here. My Communication and Connection Model is based on these principles with metaphorical flashing!  For may years I have explored the benefits of  ‘play’ in both little and big people and most mornings I set an intention to be playful and to not sweat the small stuff. This week, I found a vintage red suitcase in a skip, I’m often on the look out for them,  it was a bit rusty and tired but it … Continue reading Hishy, Hashy, Hoshy
