Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Taking time out for YOU

I had the opportunity to meet some new friends over the weekend.  While I took  some well needed time to think and reflect on both my personal and business worlds. I would highly recommend for individuals to take time out of thier busy lives and give themselves time to think, especially in our current economic climate.

I went on some lovely walks and just viewed the surroundings in a different way.  One evening when we were all sitting around the log fire, sharing experiences, telling a few stories and some jokes, Andy Smith recited one of the many poems he has written over the last few years.  He was kind enough to share this poem “Inner Beauty “with us and he has given  me permission to now share it with all of you. I look forward to sharing some of his other poetry in the coming months.  Thank you Andy.


How many conflicts must we face

Before we understand this race

How many wars to win and spin

Before we conquer what’s within

We blindly go again, again

To the swords that cut us down in size

Away from Love and Truth and Bliss

Chasing phantom happiness

Trophies gathered and hoarded

Like big boys, toys displayed

Never quite filling the empty ache

Short term patching for appearance sake

This world can seem a fear-full place

As we run and race around full pace

Striving in circles to the winning tape

From the powerful inner, no need, escape

Shadow boxing imagined ghosts

Standing on our material boasts

Lost in the egotistical searching, outside

The host that is the source

‘You are Beautiful’

Finished on May 2nd 2005.
