Love

  Love is a gift. It costs us nothing to give and returns to us a hundredfold. I’ve been trying to make it a part of my holidays in my actions, in my thoughts, the gifts I am giving… I am trying to give a bit of my heart away. So many words have been

Sing anyway

Reality

  It started with a tweet, and a status update, a message, an email, words…. it doesn’t matter how, just that it happened. One person, then two, then more, spewing hatred on an unsuspecting soul and the world changed once again. This evening I got to witness this again and my anger towards this trend
