It's been a tough year with the loss of my mum and recently my grandma. It puts everything into perspective and to quote from the great Pearl Jam song, 'Sirens' , “it's a fragile thing this life that we lead”, sums it up for me at the moment. It's hard to understand this world during such times, you have to dig deep and find some purpose to go forward. I've been walking in the mountains and getting lost in the wild, it's soothing for the soul and enables my thought processes to settle.
Stress and anxiety are common in society, in which most people suffer and being surrounded by nature is the perfect remedy for me. Music whether bird song, the crashing waves or your favourite album seems to have more importance during sad times and reaching out is a natural act. Is there hope, is there a good story to tell. I have a 9yr old niece and wonder what world she will inherit, natural resources will run out sometime and people must come together, because where else can we go. We all have to live on this planet, so lets show some maturity and respect for each other and the natural world we share. We have the power to say NO, so lets share a little love, were only here for a short time. It's a beautiful world.
