Life is always uncertain, but we can remain hopeful

‘When you are strong and healthy,

You never think of sickness coming,

But it descends with sudden force

Like a stroke of lightning.


When involved in worldly things,

You never think of death’s approach;

Quick it comes like thunder

Crashing around your head.’





The world is in shock, much of it in lockdown and curfew.  After devastating fires in Australia, floods in many parts of the world, and a massive infestation of locusts in East Africa, we now have a global epidemic of coronavirus spreading exponentially.  Much we’ve taken for granted is disintegrating and our way of life can no longer be as it was before.


Optimism works!

Being optimistic and looking on the bright side when things are tough, and everything around us seems to be in a state of chaos, isn't easy.  It's the only sane thing to do, however, when we're trying to battle against the odds.  We need to cultivate a positive attitude, believing in ourselves and our ability to deal with crises.  We also need to believe that we're not helpless victims of circumstance and that we can make in a difference in the world.

A DANCING STAR - a book that has stood the test of time!

It’s almost thirty years since A Dancing Star: Inspirations to Guide and Heal was first published. With quotes so freely available on the internet, there hardly seems a need for such an anthology. Yet, the many requests for this book, along with heartfelt thanks from readers who have found it helpful are a testament to its uniqueness, and the reason that it remains in print. It has always been, and continues to be, a comfort and an inspiration for those who are going through difficult times.
