Saturday and Sunday 17th and 18th September

We dance for laughter
We dance for tears
We dance for madness
We dance for fears
We dance for hopes
We dance for screams
We are the dancers
We create the dreams ~ Albert Einstein

On Gratitude

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

One of my habits in the morning as soon as I get out of bed is to move the blinds and look out of the window. Today the sky was showing it’s best face, smiling and beaming out the glory of a wonderful sunrise.

Fight Complexity

‘Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life – well, valuable, but small – and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void.` You’ve Got Mail

 

 

Simple things are usually the most interesting. This year i’m curating the small, the everyday as well as the large and exciting. For this is my life.

New Year New Connections

 

 

“Relationships are like farming,

if you don’t plant the seed,

you’ll have no crop to harvest”

My word for 2016 is connection.

As a new year begins new ideas begin to form. I’m resurrecting the blog and making new connections. New friendships, connecting with like minded souls and submitting work to publications is my goal for the year ahead.

Instagram continues to be my favourite form of social networking, I’ve made some great connections there. I hope to continue with a quote a day.

 

 

May the stars carry your sadness away,

May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,

May hope forever wipe away your tears,

And, above all, may silence make you strong.

Chief Dan George
