    Tully Smythe has a lot on her mind.

    Tully Smythe has a lot on her mind.

    I've never paid much attention to reality tv stars or to social media influencers, but there's always been something about Tully Smythe, aka Instagram's @tee_smythe, that I've found compelling.  There's always seemed to be a depth there, but I never knew why.  Now I do.  Tully was 15 and the eldest of 3 kids when her mother was diagnosed with dementia.  To this day, the family employs various strategies to cope with the disease.

    How did Lynne Panayiotis end up in that wheelchair?

    How did Lynne Panayiotis end up in that wheelchair?

    A couple of weeks ago my sister Sherri said to me, "I reckon my friend Lynne would be a good nitty gritty.  She’s in a wheel chair, and she’s very prepared to tell the story of how she ended up in it."  Quite simply, I dare you to hear this story and not feel like a complete wimp by the time it’s over.  The thing about Lynne though, is that she’s obviously been a bad arse since the day she was born.  This ep features beautiful traditional Tibetan music from my friend Tenzin Choegyel and there's lots of his music on Itunes. ​
