Introducing The Tales of Mr Tilly

A warm welcome to author, Noreen Leighton and illustrator, Lorna Wilson.

Somewhere in a Scottish tearoom two friends met each week for tea, cakes and friendship. Lorna the small bubbly one liked to draw and her friend Noreen the tall theatrical one liked to write. Together the two friends invented a world, a village populated by people and animals with a pug dog as the central character.

Their combined imaginations created the Tales of Mr Tilly. Mr Tilly who has known
a difficult start in life is full of gratitude. And just like his creators is on a mission to
give something back and make a difference.

He is Mr Tilly the dog who makes things better ...

A melody calling for me to listen ...

When you see someone putting on his Big Boots,
you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.

(A A Milne - Winnie the Pooh)

A moment to reflect ...

the sun is shining bright
but it is the light within that we must seek to let shine
that the world may see and know of the love
that has been sent to enlighten this life

May the New Year be all you wish for ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

the days, the weeks, the months
the years it seems
have been blown upon the breeze
and here we stand as one
upon the cusp of the new day dawning
bold
like a mountain majesty
aflame
like a beacon of love
luminous in the light of our becoming
all that we can possibly be

may the new year be all you wish for ...

A single step ...

The good news is that we are about to make that first step into the unknown ...

... a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step ... (Lao Tzu)

we have cast a pebble 
into the still blue ocean

and gaze upon the ripple 

as it seeks your shore

 

please join us

upon our adventure

and be part of the journey

unfolding

 

find us ...

 

follow us ...
