Our lives are fragile.

I looked at my Ipad at 2.00 am yesterday morning and awoke to hear of the terrible tragedy in Colorado.

We've been shown a fragile side of life. Lives are forever changed and its a reminder that we never know when our lives will end.

The absurdity of dysfunctional imaginings and the reality of their reactive behavior puts any one of us at risk at all times.

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.
Helen Keller

I'm finishing some articles today and spending the rest of the day relaxing and walking.

I need to get out and walk the 10,000 steps a day I've set myself. I've failed miserably…. I've just done around 7000 in everyday life.

My room looks to the hills and considering I'm on the 22nd floor I don't have to close the curtains….It was wonderful to wake up with the sun on my face this morning.

It's something I've loved since I was a small child. By choice I slept on an open verandah at my Grandmothers house, (even in winter) so I could feel the sun on my bed when I woke up… and it's followed me through life.

So no curtains and blinds in my house. Bring the outside in.
