Hi Jenny, This is a marvelous bit and I would dearly love to know who that was so that I may share it with people too. I'm sure there is a way to know, but I can't figure that one out. Perhaps you will tell me? Thank you for visiting my blog, and thank you for having such a wonderful piece on yours!Christine
Hi Christine -Thanks for stopping over. Isn't that bit wonderful!? I keep watching it and thinking. And thinking.The speaker is a man named Alan Watts: http://alanwatts.com/
Never Mind! I found it on You Tube by putting in the title. Hello! Alan Watts is an old favorite in this household. I shall enjoy sharing the wonderful little piece now.Again, a wonderful choice!Christine
Isn't this brilliant?I think... I think maybe I am close,and maybe the greatest step I could takewould be to stop being apologetic, or embarrassed,for not doing more typical things... for notbeing a _success_ in the expected ways.Audrey, thank you for sharing this.My soul is buzzing.
Those are some wise words.If money was no object I would like to live overlooking the sea,grow lots of beautiful flowers and do something in improvinmg the lives of others.Sarah x
Oh crumbs, this got me thinking...wise words indeed. But a part of me thinks yes, that's all well and good, but I've got a mortgage to pay. Perhaps it will impact more on how I raise my kids than what I do with my life next. Hmm, you've got me thinking now.Gillian x
Hello again Jenny.I have nominated you for a Leibster blog award. Please don't feel you have to take part. But I do like your blog. :-) x
An interesting video! From a Christian's point of view, there is a saying "In the vision, there is provision"...meaning if God places a dream in your life, he also makes a way of realising it. Therefore I believe if I put my life in His hands, He will give me dreams or vision and provide a way of realising those things...He knows better than me even what I desire the most and so far I have lived a life deeply satisfied with both the challenges and the dreams that I have realised. I hope your life is the same. By the way..I love that you want to call McDonald's, Macca's!!

This is such a great question...and one I need to revisit from time to time. I want to live lovingly as a servant-leader, wherever I live, and that is not dependent on the amount of money I possess. I want to live creatively expressing love, crafting it through words and actions, especially through the home arts.I want to live simply, near an ocean, rivers, lakes, trees, and mountains. How about you, Jenny?xx,Gracie
Thank you for your comments. Hearing from you makes my day!
