Pictures (great) by my old friend John (“the world’s third worst
photographer”, so he calls himself), but whose photographic talents I
definitely  do NOT possess)!

Shared by “totally unmusical” craig, “the world’s absolutely worst photographer and fourth worst writer”, but “not too bad Information and Inspiration Distributer, Incorrigible Encourager and People-builder * (totally impulsive)”
* not bridges (thank goodness)!

Well my family and friends say I’m “safest” just writing and sharing

‘BEYOND THE RAINBOW’ (A “FUTURE WORK” by craig lock)

BOOKS BY CRAIG LOCK

via ‘BEYOND THE RAINBOW’ (A “FUTURE WORK” by craig lock)

Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success; but rather an ability to work for something because it is good.

Beyond the Rainbow (a future "work" by craig lock

imagine peace

Only when peace lives within us, will it live outside us

“Either we stayed as we were, trapped inside our fortress of paranoia, deformed by fear and greed, or we opened the door to Africa and set forth into the unknown.”
-Rian Malan (in his brilliant book ‘My Traitor’s Heart’ – page 413)

“From the depth of the valleys, in the deserts of despair, there is hope… as there is the unquenchable oasis of the human spirit… always.”

A recipe for lifes dreams

Jenny's Photographic Journey

When you SHARE with others on the world wide web they become apart of the fabric of your life .
Through your writings, photos , messages, comments.,sharings
It touches so many people , they in the process touch others and its spreads
Unbeknown to you,
You IMPACT another persons life in so many different ways, every way shape and form is like magic
You UPLIFT them with a knowledge you never thought you had.
Words spread like a river flowing , bending around corners , binding us all as friends around the world ,
You don’t have to see it, to feel what is happening in someone elses life
You IGNITE a fire deep within ,not only in yourself but people you have never met,
Strangers become friends
The fire in your heart burns so bright for all to see like the universe above
You give them COURAGE to step…
