In early 2023, The Hospital Research Foundation Group – Creative Health asked staff and volunteers at Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre to contribute photographs of what a glimmer is to them.
Glimmers are small moments that spark joy or peace. They help shift our focus to the good things in life and can cue our nervous system to feel safe or calm.
Everyone experiences glimmers. They can be:
▪ Hanging out with your pets
▪ Noticing sunlight sparkling on water
▪ The perfect cup of coffee
▪ Finding a favourite flower in your garden
▪ A stranger smiling at you in public
▪ Anything that helps you feel safe and connected
Here is my glimmer photo of the beach at Anglesea Victoria taken in May 2023
I have chosen this photo as it is a beautiful sunset with glimmering light which occurred not long after my mother died. It is significant to me because Anglesea was a special place for family holidays when I was young and reminds me of mum.

Here are some photos of my twin grandchildren.
They are best friends and adore each other.
The love and happiness shows in the photos.

Things that fill my cup and bring a smile on mine and my family’s face.
Connecting with nature along with my little ones, sitting at the beach listening to waves and just taking a walk in the hills is something we enjoy.
Seeing the new faces and connecting with people who have similar interest is an additional benefit.
