How’s this week been in your corner of the world? I bet it’s been filled with stuff from A to Z, but hopefully things that kept you movin’ forward. Magic happens in every moment, that’s one thing we can all look forward to…

I found a little snack of that this afternoon…the sun was hanging low on the hips of the day, and I passed what I thought was a small patch of dry grass. I turned around and found it was an ocean of gold! Glowing like amber embers in that late afternoon light. Amazing and so beautiful, it really gave me some much needed peace in the week.

I almost kept driving past it. That little inner voice gently asked me to stop. Turn around and see what’s right here where you are. Take a minute on the way to where you think you need to go and…

“Envy is the art of counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own.” ~Harold Coffin

Jealousy is a set back because it distracts you from focusing on yourself. There’s no need to be jealous because you can have the same success that you admire in others. Instead of focusing on what someone else has, give attention to your own goals. There’s room for everyone to succeed!

Prayer is when you talk to God. Meditation is when you’re listening. Playing the piano allows you to do both at the same time. -Kelsey Grammer from Esquire Magazine

The feature “Points To Ponder” in Reader’s Digest magazine has always been my favorite part of the magazine. I used to cut them out of the books and add a pithy quote to the message on my voice mail, for something people weren’t counting on.

Do you play an instrument like guitar, cello, violin or piano and have you experienced spiritual feelings? Would some of the 1400+ readers like to share how music inspires you and speaks to you?

Our Eye Sight – Something Some Take For Granted

As you noticed I put up several stories to do with blindness and apps for the blind and increasing public awareness for people who are blind.

I met someone very special by the name of Marty Ashman, who you would never know is legally blind. He is handsome, has a winning attitude and believes though losing his site 4 years ago due to retinitis pigmentosa continues to inspire others like me.
He is studying to be a Mentor for other blind people to show that blindness isn’t the end of living.

This story will be continued tomorrow…

287. Looking after the oceans…

According to the WWF:

More than 70% of the world’s surface is covered with oceans, but only 2% of that is protected.

I received an e-mail today from Greenpeace asking me to contact Princes and John West about how their tuna is caught, as despite previously making promises to change their practice they have failed to keep their word.

Their suppliers are using Fish Aggregation Devices – artificial platforms, made up of floating materials and netting. These attract all kinds of marine life, which are then scooped up indiscriminately. The unwanted ‘bycatch’, animals like sharks, turtles and rays, are then dumped overboard, dead and dying.

Back in 2011, a massive public campaign convinced them to commit to quit using these destructive FADs. But the following link leads to footage suggesting they aren’t sticking to this:

Unsurprisingly I’ve sent the e-mail asking for action from these companies.
