“We spend time in our dreams, our special world where everything is on our side”
I dream of visiting faraway islands on distant shores, lying on a beach, engrossed in my favorite pastime – dreaming. Continue reading

Throughout history the simple rose, a beautiful fragrant flower, has been the source of much that has been written about life, love, beauty and fragrance.
Although the rose, like so much of nature’s gems, appears so defenseless against all of the elements of life, so easily crushed by these elements; roughly picked by less caring humans, she has a hardiness, known to many of her species, as they continue daily enduring to survive in their environment.
You are led
through your lifetime
by the inner learning creature,
the playful spiritual being
that is your real self.
Don’t turn away from
before you’re certain you don’t have
anything to learn from them.
You’re always free
to change your mind and
choose a different future, or
no such thing as a problem
without a gift for you in its hands
You seek problems,
because you need their gifts………

I know now why the Caged Bird Sings – Maya Angelou
One evening after a very heated argument with my daughter; anger in her eyes she turned to me and said, “Happiness comes from within, you create your own happiness. Get your shit together. You have to love yourself before you can possibly love anyone. Look at all your failed relationships; they didn’t last because you can’t even love yourself”!
After many tears in my room, it got me thinking, she was right. How could I possibly move on with my life if there was so much inner hate? I made a decision then; I would make a concerted effort to work on my life and my self-happiness. There were places I knew exactly where I needed to start.
Why not start the series at the beginning.

“So much to do, so little done”
Last words uttered by Cecil John Rhodes, British businessman, mining magnate and founder of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe and Zambia) on his deathbed.
This was the motto of my high school and whenever I remember these words, I recall my teachers, trying vainly to drum it into my mind that I was to find more time to study.
Good or bad, the words had little or no effect on a young man who found dreaming of far greater excitement and comfort.
The most beautiful and dynamic garden in the world is the human mind.
In it grow all manner of thoughts.
Every imaginable species of thoughts grow there; happily they grow alongside each other; which is quite surprising really, considering how different they all are.
Whilst they jostle, like the occupants of any garden, for prominence, they vie with one another for position; some content in their beauty, some content in their fragrance, others boasting both beauty and fragrance.
Who knows what lies in the mind of a child? Dreams and hopes, fears and sorrows. A child who seeks from those whose love and care is craved, just a smile, a word of approval, a touch of a hand, carried on a shoulder big and strong; lifted up and tossed into the air, then safely caught in strong hands…….

NO! I Wasn’t Born Like This
It is not often that I’m faced with real stories, where those that write, do so from their hearts; where their greatest desire is to share with as many as possible, their story, in the hopes that it will encourage anyone who finds themselves in the same horrifying place…

A Book Review
Who should read this book?
I rather like the way the author himself suggests who should read these pages:
“This book is practical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories.
It is intended for men and woman whose most pressing need is money; who wish to get rich first and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which these conclusions were reached.”
