Head Or Heart

Follow the head or heart? A conundrum that all of us have had. Both pulling in different directions, which to choose. Or do we take the third option, toss a coin and let fate decide. I’ve generally followed my head in the past but I’ve learnt that often doesn’t end with the best outcomes for…

Louder Than Words

I’ve recently changed jobs and my current employer as did my previous one has a strong anti-bullying message, so far so good. But and there is always a but, what goes unnoticed is the small scale stuff which on it’s own can be brushed off but when you put it together is pretty nasty. The…

Acts of Kindness

As I think you know the rocks I paint are hidden to be hopefully found. I’m not sure if it is the same elsewhere but in the UK there are Facebook groups where found rocks can be posted. I write the address for my local group on the reverse of the rock. Mostly the rocks…

A Refuge

I think like a lot on WordPress probably too much of my spare time is spent within the mind. Thoughts coming and going, some worthy of grabbing others just waft away never to be seen again. The mind though is a refuge, a safe place where we can be who we are, who we want…

Friendly Fire

This is a spur of the moment post, just a flow of possibly reasoned views. In my life my faith has meandered, I started off as a Christian, studied Buddhism, read the Quran and have looked at many other faiths, current and past. The conclusion I have reached is that all faiths are ultimately worshipping…

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done; on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.…
