Just one song today and a bonus track at that.

Poor Moon by CANNED HEAT.

It’s just gorgeous. Such a pretty little rolling tune with sweet voices that just makes smile.

Hope it does the same for you. X

Silent Sunday, Get Up 1, Playlist.

Keep getting up.

Fall down 10 times… just get up 11.

It’s funny, that I can’t hear that number without it reminding me of the fabulous Spinal Tap, still to me, one of the funniest films.

For anyone who hasn’t seen it yet and loves music, you so should. But for all those who have… say it with me…

Why is 11 better? Because it’s one more.”

Here is a little taster of the brilliant rock band tour satire. Because I like to find reasons to laugh and try to make it a daily habit. It is by far one of the best healers and always makes me feel better.

Hope you are having a beautiful weekend. Sending you all the love in the world. X

Sky 1 playlist. Something to lay back and look up to. X

From the oh so fluffy to the daily work of Art’s that are each sunrise and sunset. I love them all. Each different, each spectacular in it’s own way.

Don’t forget to stop, breath and enjoy all of them. Nature’s not so little reminder to stop and be grateful for it all.

Another day under these breathtaking skies on our amazing planet. Lest we forget all the blessings we have. Nor forget to take care of it, as it does us.

Whenever I see any kind of sky, even the grey on grey I appreciate them all, as they all have their beauty. I make a point of trying to drink it all up and soak it all in, wherever I am.

Sometimes only fleetingly if I’m driving by, because no one wants a crash. But More often I would have to stop the car and capture that days, hours, or moments master piece. Feeling privileged to have been witness to it.

But if I am walking my Dog say, or out in nature ideally, I stop and use that as another chance to reconnect with myself and the universe. I sit or stand and just watch the sky go by. It is an amazing little meditation because all you need to do is take the time stop and look.

It always seems to work on me both calming and reinvigorating.

All that glorious colour and form, pattern and geometry. Both organic, abstract and angular at times, how could that not fill me with a sense of wonder, joy and gratitude.

A feeling of connection to it all. I know now for me at least, I need that because it seems to feed me and energise my life force in a way.

So I thought I’d give you a little mix to relax and watch the clouds go by to.

There are quite a few from THE ORB, because they are geniuses at understanding dynamics. I don’t know about you, but I like to be taken on a proper journey. Be surprised not expecting.

Sometimes I like to see if I can either cloud bust or cloud create. See if I can’t make them into the shapes I want. Ha ha ha.

Their first track on the mix, FIRST CONSIDER THE LILLIES is a meditation on a flying carpet all by itself. I just love that. Free holiday as I see it, even if it’s only for a few minutes. The further I am taken the better and more refreshing the voyage.

Also some more from the awesome NIGHTMARES ON WAX, with the most beautiful lyrics and message. I am listening to them a lot at the moment because I have only just found them, OH NO ! Lol it’s ok, we have them now, panic over.

To the sweetness of another ALI FARKA TOURE and the lovely ANGELICA, by LAMB, plus another double , sorry, from a previous playlist, GOLDEN CLOUDS added simply because it’s too great a song to not put on a Sky playlist and because I love it so much i can’t stop playing it.

And a beautiful Japanese word that I learnt today which sums this all up in a way. Where I want to live anyway.

Have a Beautiful day and Namaste you beautiful lot. X

Chinese Proverbs – Inspirational Words Of Wisdom

The first thing that comes to mind when you think of Chinese proverbs is Fortunecookies. We all love a taste of these cookies and the wisdom that come with them. But did you know that Fortune cookies can trace their origin to Kyoto, Japan? Well, that’s a story for another day.

Today, we are going to discuss Chinese proverbs. The nature of the Chinesedialect lends itself to idioms and proverbs. With just a few characters, the Chinese language can easily convey a complex thought.

Most sayings and proverbs in the Chinese language are hard to trace their origins. Some of them can go all the way back to the Dao De Jing and Yi Jing ancient classic. On top of that, these saying typically relate to specific people or even places in Chinese history. Such proverbs can be a bit hard to understand especially for non-Chinese individuals.

What’s more, translating Chinese sayings to English is not an easy thing. In some cases, you might find that you will not get a similar construct or meaning in English. Therefore, translating such statements can be difficult. All in all, experts were able to interpret some of the Chinese proverbs to English.

So What Is Wisdom And Why Is It So Important?

If you want to be a leader someday, it’s important to grow and gain wisdom. More importantly, wisdom is not something that you will learn in school. I’m sure you agree with me there’s no subject that will practically teach you how to be wise.

But you can use your knowledge in the right way. Some of the reasons why wisdom is so important includes;

  • Good Character: I believe having a strong character will help you go through your tough times with ease. With a strong character, you will be able to positively impact the people around you. Most importantly you will be able to culture the wisdom in you.
  • Good Judgment: with wisdom, obstacles and challenges will be a simple walk in the park. That’s because you will have developed good judgment. But you should remember that this comes from experience and time. When you have good judgment, you will always solve problems, overcome obstacles, picture better results and keep on moving forward.

It’s a fact that wisdom comes from time and experience. That’s actually the reason why we generally perceive older people to be wiser than everyone else. But that shouldn’t mean that you cannot become wise while you are still young. On the contrary, it only means that you should practice and master your specific art or job.

Wise people will always remember and learn from their past experiences. The most important bit is that you should always move forward. Do not live in your past. Keep striving to make your today better than yesterday and your tomorrow better than today. That’s the only way you will become wiser than your age.

But of course there’s still a lot more to say about being wise and how important it is to your daily routines. Well, I hope these saying translated from the Chinese language will help you develop yourself and give you wisdom. Here’s a list of inspirational words of wisdom from the Chinese language.

Take a chance and experience new things in life and fail. Then pick yourself up and try again but don’t repeat the same mistakes you did the last time. Be happy!
