This is a WordPress blog! WordPress have just handed out a challenge! A post a day for 2011! OK, so I’ve decided to join in. But there’s a catch. 1. It might be late in the day 2. It might be just one word 3. YOU might have to nag me if I forget! (Feel… Read More I must be mad
There is nothing better than silence. We are bombarded constantly with sound. I’ve had a superfluity of noise over the Christmas break, so today I’m so very thankful that I can be quiet. Over the years I have learnt to live with constant sound. I don’t listen to it, but I can still hear it. … Read More Silence is Golden

It reminds us that life is not easy, that we meet many… Read More Hind’s Feet
Dreams can become reality. Thank you for dreams.
