Scars on the Soul and acts of Kindness

At birth we are full of wonder, new sights, sounds and smells envelope our senses.  We are more open to people, learning and life. Something happens along the way and each year as we grow older we start learning that not all in the world is good, kind or nice.  We harden and start blocking our senses in order to protect what we hold dear. … Continue reading Scars on the Soul and acts of Kindness

Self Defence and the cool habit gang

I am linking to these two posts again, if you have not read them yet then I  suggest that you do, politely of course.  Hayden’s Women Need Protecting and Joy’s post Safety tips for children.  Those posts really have me thinking and before they think I am “link stalking” let me explain. There are some things we take for granted, personal safety and protection is … Continue reading Self Defence and the cool habit gang

Ubuntu in a Can

No I am not talking about the operating system, I am talking about an African saying that has been blown out by the Western world. What is the real Ubuntu? Pronounced as uu-Boon-too or uu-Bun-too. Ubuntu, also known as Unhu in other parts of Africa, is an ethical philosophy held by many Africans and now Westerners (First World) that focuses on how we treat one … Continue reading Ubuntu in a Can

The life and times of an ordinary human being

Originally posted May 3, 2008 I have met some incredible people in my life time, I know I will meet some more along this road but so far the night sky is full of sparkling stars representing each and every one. Each has their own story, their own heart ache, they are ordinary human beings with hearts of gold. So often when we experience pain, heartache … Continue reading The life and times of an ordinary human being

Nothing worthwhile is ever easy…

I have a few quotes that I live by, the one that has stuck with me the longest is probably “Live life like there is no tomorrow”.  That one for me has the strongest meaning and encompasses who I am and what I stand for. Live life like there is no tomorrow… what does it mean to you? For me it is… Living life without … Continue reading Nothing worthwhile is ever easy…

You can still be free

It’s funny how some songs find you, once long lost they make their way back to your ears, for what ever reason they replay within the walls of your mind as the mundane tasks progress and life ticks forward. This song’s lyrics are so powerful, more powerful perhaps for their undercurrent meaning.  We get lost even though we seem found, we can feel sadness within … Continue reading You can still be free

Balance and the Threads of Life

There is another DNA secquence that isn’t as obvious as the one discovered by the scientists.  The one that I talk of is the undercurrent, unspoken, often unthought of, more mysterious one.  Our DNA is fixed, we all have a unique set that may be similar to others but not exactly the same unless by chance we are a pure bred identical twin and even … Continue reading Balance and the Threads of Life
