  2. HI Simon,

    On your quote about changing your life, one of my all-time favorite poems, by Rainer Maria Rilke, ends with

    “nor would this star have shaken the shackles off,
    bursting with light, until there is no place
    that does not see you.You must change your life.”

    (Macintyre translation)

    It is a powerful poem. I even love the German of the last line: Du must dein Leben andern…”You must change your life.” If interested check out, “The Archaic Torso of Apollo” by Rilke.

    Thank you again for your version. I love it.


  3. My social media aspirations are severely lacking.I move much like the turtle in this capacity. My hope is to get my blog redesign going first, then tackle Instagram and those other little icons one can join.
    My redesigned blog will have pull down menus for my art which I’m really excited about.
    I’ll get there Simon I hope, it will just take a while 🙂
    Hope all is well in your part of the world 🙂
    Have a glorious week and I hope all in your circle are well

  4. Each thought is powerful Simon. You’re doing a great job of touching hearts and spirits… person by person. ❤
