This website has been created by Anne Yarwood, resident in Ascot for over 50 years, to show how individuals CAN effect change… can DO something about their concerns, in an imaginative way.

Dear Readers,

Thank you for joining me in this new adventure which I started in June 2016 with my daughter Sally. We’re getting a sense of where you are, from Google Analytics. Thrilled to see three viewers in Samara, nearly 400 miles from Stalingrad.

So this modest record of life in Ascot and in the eastern part of Berkshire, South East England, where my family and I have lived for over 50 years … is WAVING at other people who are inspired by the IMAGINATION & believe in the POWER OF STORY.

TIA’s (The Imagination Acts) VISION is to offer a HOSTED SPACE to record examples of my own & friends’ Inspired action, created by our own imaginations to empower CHANGE. Too small to effect radical change? Too diverse & disconnected to topple the power-houses? My comrades and I don’t agree. SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL & IT IS EVERYWHERE!

I’ve greatly enjoyed creating this seriously light-hearted website FROLIC during the past NINE MONTHS. And now encourage Readers to join in an increasingly interactive website…Would you fancy contributing? Your DIVERSITY will enrich TIA. You could choose to offer an INSTAGRAM : speedy peep, a BLOG: thought provoking glance, your STORY: intrigued response, recommend a theme for the GALLERY : images to inspire, and expansive TALES : more a cuppa and biscuit moment….

Please feel welcome to contact me on

With good wishes from Anne Yarwood

The Moment You Decide To Act

| Blogs | No Comments

This purple Clematis has budded and shrivelled year after year, until 2017.

We had planted it against a metal arch. This Spring it moved itself away from the metal and into the close-by Rose. You see the result.

Question: what impelled the plant- saving move ?

Looking back at times of decision in our own lives… WHAT made us move ?

Always encouraged by Goethe – ” Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it”

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe



The JUST WALK : ”A Big Crazy Stunt: crazier than the Wall”

One man who decided several years back, to ACT,  is Justin Butcher. We met him in  Ascot as the Director of Jennifer Leach’s play about the Palestinian conflict: TAKE TWO ( see Tales archive) Justin and friends were “brewing” the idea of a pilgrimage to Palestine ; a walk across Europe to mark a number of significant anniversaries in the history of the Palestine.

2017 marks three major anniversaries in the Palestinian struggle:

10 years of the blockade of Gaza ; 50 years of Occupation and 100 years since the Balfour Declaration.



This is a new feature coming.
