he loves me, he loves me not...

When I was a child, my sister & I use to spend a lot of time at the cattle yards waiting for the trucks to arrive to load & transport the cattle to sales market. We use to pick the petals of daisies, to the words of 
'he loves me, he loves me not'.
A lovely client popped in today with a bunch of daisies. 
Funny how happy memories find their way back to you.

Seahorses are truly unique, and not just because of their unusual equine shape. Unlike most other fish, they are monogamous and mate for life. Rarer still, they are among the only animal species on Earth in which the male bears the unborn young.

'you will remember me when the west wind moves, upon the fields of Bali'......
I can't remember how old I was when Sting came into my life, but he found me again this morning when I was waiting for my coffee on my way to work. It made me smile.

Here's a new on for you which I experienced recently : Being bullied at the age of 37, by people who are in their 40's....& 50's, by people you have never met, CEO's, and sadly people who you have loved and supported.

One way to survive such a grotesque onslaught is previous experience, which fortunately or unfortunately I have. For anyone who is being or has been bullied, my advise to you is be kind to yourself. Cruelty doesn't just start at a international war crimes level, it's on every corner of every street of the world. My grandmother use to say to me, 'what goes around comes around', and if you haven't learn't that lesson in your 30's, 40's or 50's,  you have my empathy.

other peoples opinions complimentary or otherwise are only words. 
the best compliments come from with in. 
life is beautiful, even if the road ahead looks long & difficult.
