a gem of a quote

I came across this quote, and found it so inspiring and insightful that I want to share it ....

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving”





This is what Albert Einstein wrote in a letter to his son Eduard in 1930. I'd have to agree with him. Perhaps some of the unbalances found within people and society are partly as a result of an obsession with holding on to the way things are, and a resistance against flowing with the natural passing of time...

two feathered friends


I just had to share these two feathered friends with everyone. I came across them on my recent trip to sunny Greece. They are carved out of precious stones and we think they look spectacular. The colours and natural variations of the stones really reflect a birds delicate plumage - amazing. Even though they are made from stone, they look so light and dainty - I wouldn't have been surprised if one had stretched out its wings and flown away!
