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,

We’ve been celebrating our website’s first year anniversary. And warmly welcome you popping in to share thoughts, from the UK and currently over 18 countries worldwide. We like to wonder who our viewers are in, say Argentina and Russia ?…Fascinating !

So this modest record of life in Ascot, South East England, where we’ve lived for over 50 years … is WAVING at other people who are inspired by the IMAGINATION & believe in the POWER OF STORY.

TIA’s VISION is to offer a HOSTED SPACE to record examples of my own & friends’ Inspired action, created by our own imaginations to empower CHANGE.  SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL & IT IS EVERYWHERE !

Faithfully keeping to our focus that OUR IMAGINATIONS POWER OUR ACTIONS, the website’s interest has covered a wide range of social, political, artistic and spiritual topics including:- Tender stories, social injustice, wild creatures, current international concerns, loved pets, and a lot of LEGACY tales about me & friends DOING STUFF, TOGETHER.

Einstein speaks for us all :-  ” IMAGINATION is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know & understand, while IMAGINATION embraces the entire world and all there will be to know and understand.”

Would you like to contribute ? Your DIVERSITY will enrich TIA. You could choose to offer a BLOG: thought provoking glance; STORY: intrigued response; recommend a theme for the GALLERY with images to inspire; or an expansive TALE : more a cuppa and biscuit moment….


VIVA, ever in solidarity,

 These are Solitary Bees. Essential pollinators. See ref. article  below.
