• Obstacles or Opportunities?

    An obstacle is anything that obstructs my path on the way to getting to my destination. Yet, on the other hand, we have all experienced at times that an obstacle, rather than stopping us in our path, can very often take us to places beyond our expectations.

  • Fire Fighters

  • Interesting!

    Interesting!   Do you ever stop to look at what holds your attention for most of the day?  Is it material objects, or human beings?  If we find the TV and internet, or cricket and football more interesting (or important) than human company, then we have lost our bearings as a human race.
