Hi Ari

Thanks for the follow(s) * (+ likes), as the reason I write is to share.
* (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

# By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

(get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

* or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

“total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

Who says men can’t multi-task!

Kind regards and all the best with your blog

Beautiful words by Will Roger. Appreciated❤️

Not only reading is the good and final way to get settle, but get in touch and create a small distance with smart and good people around, is much needed.

Happy Saturday Night.

the-world-you-make-now-1.pngFor the only world you will ever know, is the world you make now. It is so easy getting lost in the maze of everyday, thinking that this is the way it has always been, and that this is the season we are condemned to endure forever, living in a state of mirroring yesterday, like pale imitations of ourselves.

Though the day it all began, was not a brilliant and extraordinary day where everything was served on a silver platter. The day it all began, was an imperfect and cracked day just like this, only that someone was courageous enough to peek behind the facade, and spot the depth beneath the shallow, and the beams of light behind the dust. That was the first day, and it still is that day. It still begins now. It still begins, here.

IF (by Rudyard Kipling): If you can keep your head when all about you  Are losing theirs and blaming it on you…”

http://www.inspiringvideo.wordpress.com

and

http://www.championdad.wordpress.com

(Rewards and Fairies)

 

If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

“I do not choose to be a common man…”

BOOKS BY CRAIG LOCK

common masn short

and/or Thomas Paine??

“My Creed (The Entrepreneur’s Creed)

I do not choose to be a common man,
It is my right to be uncommon … if I can,
I seek opportunity … not security.
I do not wish to be a kept citizen.
Humbled and dulled by having the
State look after me.
I want to take the calculated risk;
To dream and to build.
To fail and to succeed.
I refuse to barter incentive for a dole;
I prefer the challenges of life
To the guaranteed existence;
The thrill of fulfillment
To the stale calm of Utopia.
I will not trade freedom for beneficence
Nor my dignity for a handout
I will never cower before any master
Nor bend to any threat.
It is my heritage to stand erect.
Proud and unafraid;
To think and act for myself,
To enjoy the benefit of my creations
And to face the…
