1 These important words from the Dalai Lama came into my inbox today:
If we are demoralised, sad and only complain, we’ll not solve our problems. If we only pray for a solution, we’ll not solve our problems. We need to face them, to deal with them without violence, but with confidence – and never give up. If you adopt a non-violent approach, but are also hesitant within, you’ll not succeed. You have to have confidence and keep up your efforts – in other words, never give up.
2 After a busy weekend with the Grandchildren, we have come home and decided to decorate the sitting room! As I cleared a bookshelf, the beautiful tooling on the spine of these little books caught my eye.
3 I love this very pale Periwinkle flower, flowering in the bitterest of winds today.
