Ecstatically kissing 2017 goodbye. Because 2017 sucked. Other than 1989, which was the year my Mum died, 2017 was the worst year of my life, for a long list of reasons. Many of my friends have said the same. I don’t know if it was a combination of the zeitgeist of the world and personal…Read More

Love isn’t yours…it belongs to the world. This came to me in my meditation this morning, on Valentine’s Day. I have never been a fan of Valentine’s Day, probably because I never seem to have one. But what if love doesn’t really belong to you. What if it belongs to all of us. What if…Read More
