New Beginnings

Hello Kee and Mogs, how did the summer holidays go, did you do anything exciting?  I remember how I used to take time off work to look after you and we used to go off for days and do different things, on the beach, walks, lakes, fishing, kite flying not usually too far but we enjoyed it anyhow.  Then there was the start of the new school year and getting you sorted for that.  New beginnings and so it is now as you both move on, I hope you enjoy your new ventures, my heart goes with you, x

Solve the puzzle

Neither John Dalton nor Ernest Rutherford but Antonius van den Broek gave the answer:

1, 53 / 19,95,48 / 67, 74 / 53, 16 / 39, 8, 92 ? 71, 23 / 15, 95, 48 .  6 / 92 / 16, 8, 8, 7 ?

I loved this passage from Osho

I really liked this passage from Osho on compassion, especially the part about love.  Love is unbound, unchained, unconditional given freely with no contract or expectation as a return, nothing to prop the ego, given even though nothing comes back and despite negativity.  Only then is it love and not as Kant says ‘to use others as a means’.

To all my children, know that I love you.

What is Compassion? – Osho

Summer Holiday Thoughts

I remember when the schools would break up and I’d collect you both from school, very excited to be facing those long six weeks away from school.  We’d try to fit something in most days when I had leave from work, beach, fishing, kite flying, trips off etc.  Then there were times when we went abroad trips in the camper and camping.  Fun days so I expect you will be looking forward now to the break but perhaps not doing what we did then as you are so much older now.  In any event I hope you enjoy whatever it is you have planned and come back refreshed for your new challenges having both left school now you’re 16 and 18.  My thoughts will be with you as always, all my love, Dad.
