Life is not a rehearsal
You can get thru life as if it were a driving lesson
following the Rules of the Road to the letter
never crossing the white line and
probably survive to be a great old age
but what if you reached the end
only to look back and wish: If only……..
Each day only comes once
enjoy it to the full,
you will never get the chance again!!!
It may not be necessary to quit your job
sell all your belongings
and go swim with the dolphins
on a sun baked beach
but why not do something
you have never done before
It does not have to be cartwheels

a hop and a skip will do
………………….to start with

QUANTUM LEAP

Size Un-framed 45cm x 10.7cm
Size framed 48 x 13.5cm in a white frame

History is written as we live it
Slow steady progress inevitably inexorably
takes each of us forward
But sometimes…….
When we reach for something much higher
When we stretch our resolve even further
When we push past previous limits……
to beyond – just sometimes….
It is possible to exceed all expectations…… –
– to realise our very dreams

IF I CAN DREAM
As I stood in a long queue at the bus stop,
in the cold and the wind and the rain
I vowed always to remember
what it felt like as sometimes
several full busses passed us by
I stood there and wondered
what everybody else was thinking?
What were they like?
What were their dreams?

Here we have 30 people
3 children and 20 dreams
try to match the dream with the person………………………………

I’VE DONE IT

Passing an exam – Academic or otherwise is the most wonderful feeling.
To have been judged by ones peers to be good enough after weeks – months
even years of learning and endless practice is fantastic – brilliant and marvelous!

But I wonder if a thought ought to be spared for those who also wait for the result
Those who care passionately wether we pass or fail
Those who walk the floor waiting for the phone to ring
Constantly checking the time
nervously drinking or chain smoking or praying
One with her ears covered and another with his head in a cardboard box
Driven to distraction by the waiting
and at the same time afraid to hear the result………….

The words “I’ve done it” shouted while floating from cloud nine
are greeted with “Congratulations” and “I never doubted you”
And perhaps it is because of those very people who care so much
that the feelings of joy are so great!
So if you’ve just done it – “Well done”

GONE FISHING

Size Un-framed 45cm x 10.7cm
Size framed 48 x 13.5cm in a white frame

GONE FISHING
When the work load is unending
When the years race by
When queues for everything are growing
When the noise is deafening
When the traffic isn’t moving…………….
I think of Reginald Perrin
Maybe he had the right idea –
He just carried it a little too far
When it all gets too much
Do leave all the hassels behind on the shore
and go fishing!
Just remember to leave a note!

Time does not stand still
Moving from one place to another
whether it be a new House or
Job or even Country
Is like
leaving a part of yourself behind
Your comfort – your friends
your past!
But live in the present
The future
will probably be FANTASTIC!
Oh! and “Good luck”

We live among others – We abide by the rules
We are limited by our circumstances
Personal Freedom to do and think and feel
as you yourself alone would like
Is very difficult to find and even more difficult to keep
So when you do find freedom to be truly who you are
Even in a single place or time
Treasure it!

I wonder if there is one special partner
for each of us?
If there is one soul mate
with whom we can be happy forever?
and whether we know it immediately,
when we meet that someone?
and if that is called…..
………………..Love at first sight?
