THANX for following in the “blogosphere”


MANY MORE COMMENTS OVERNIGHT and many hundreds of thousands already on my various other blogs at as well as…true!) …so hope it’s not slowing down your loading speed!). Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as the reason I write is to share.

I have so many WordPress blogs and can’t keep up with the comments, likes, etc. So sorry can’t reply individually to all you good people scattered around the planet, but DO try to read as many as possible daily (and even moderate a few when I get a “mo”),

I do really appreciate your liking, linking to and/or following this blog (and “writing in”), so “thanks for the thanx”

“As we live and move and have our being, so from this vision, we create heaven in our own lives… and perhaps even heaven on earth.”

“Aim at the earth and you may not get off the ground.
“Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”
“Aim at heaven and you’ll have earth thrown in…
and you may even hit the stars.”
– craig (as inspired by the famous quote by CS Lewis – 24th May 2012)

“When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
– Leonardo da Vinci

“If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music, or
Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well
that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
here lived a great street sweeper
who did his job well.”
– Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

Instead of trying to reply to each one of you, I’ll just keep on writing

”Since I can never see your face,
And never shake you by the hand,
I send my soul through time and space
To greet you. You will understand.”

- James Elroy Flecker (1884-1915)
