Sunflower, Tremenheere and Ubuntu

1    Only one of our Sunflowers has been successful and it is beautiful.




2    We had a family outing to Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens this afternoon and the children loved exploring the jungly garden. The adults loved the sculptures and we all enjoyed delicious cakes at the end of our hot, hard walk.

3    It’s World Humanitarian Day and SG, a good friend, has said her word for today is Ubuntu.  Archbishop Desmond Tutu explained ubuntu like this –  he says that you cannot exist as a human being in isolation, as we are all interconnected:
“We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole world. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.”   Or, as SG says, “I am because you are.” Thank you for this, S.
