2016 Full of Joys Abundance Prosperity Love Warmth Courage and Spirit! I hardly know anyone around me on all levels who does not have a sad story of suffering to tell one way or another including myself. We are all indeed living in complete pandemonium! As much as some lost souls are determined to demolish and raise havoc in our world, on the other side of the scale are those beautiful souls, both young and old, who are just as resolved and unwavering in their courageous attempts to create and share love kindness and generosity of spirit. It is our own personal decision as to which side of the scale we are on. This goes for all of us as we live our daily individual lives with every thought, with every word, with every action we take beginning with our nearest and dearest at home.
Today I came across this website about The Human Library which I’d like to share with you. What a brilliant idea I thought. I have great admiration for creative people who come up with these fresh fantastic unprecedented ideas! In my younger years where there was no television, forget about internet, I had an aunt who was a great story teller, and once a week we, two or three families, gathered together, and we children sat around on the floor to listen to a fairy tale from the thousand and one nights series. I loved those evenings when we squealed with delight at magicians and demons, giants and genies, enjoyed a world of fantasy where all the impossible was possible and best of all when everything ended happily ever after. I love books and I love libraries and I love this idea. Trust the Danish to come up with innovative ideas. There’s something about those northern countries, me thinks they have a formula for good living, that we all can learn from. Hey maybe you can start something like this in your hometown.
