The Greeks understood that mind and body must develop in harmonious proportions to produce a creative intelligence. And so did the most brilliant intelligence of our earliest days – Thomas Jefferson – when he said, not less than two hours a day should be devoted to exercise. If the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence, was Secretary of State, and twice President, could give it two hours, our children can give it ten or fifteen minutes.

Be Who You Are!

a wizard’s power to melt stone to sunlight…

‘We wait all these years to find someone who understands us, I thought, someone who accepts us as we are, someone with a wizard’s power to melt stone to sunlight, who can bring us happiness in spite of trials, who can face our dragons in the night, who can transform us into the soul we choose to be. Just yesterday I found that magical Someone is the face we see in the mirror: It’s us and our homemade masks.’

Richard Bach

We are One

When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One.


I know for a fact it has been a trying year or two for many of us and I also know that when times are hard for prolonged periods you begin to doubt yourself – so it is in this vein that I offer you the following Pink lyrics :

Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel like you’re nothing
You’re f*ckin’ perfect to me

We are already enough and yes we can always be more – Happy Festive Season!
N 🙂


Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune–without the words,
And never stops at all,
