The Importance of Goodbye

  Saying goodbye is something we do on a daily basis. The Oxford Dictionary defines goodbye as “an exclamation to express good wishes when parting or at the end of a conversation.” So many words meaning the same thing… goodbye, safe journey, farewell, adieu, au revoir, ciao, auf wiedersehen, adios, sayonara, bye, bye-bye, so long,

listen…

  It started with a song… listen. ; Open your mind and your heart, breathe in what others are saying to you, with a look, a touch, a sob and yes even words!   Listen to the music that is your life, involve your senses and take it all in. You may be surprised at what
