Love is in the air

Love not fear

So many of us let fear over-ride us. When something horrible happens many turn to fear. This is usually totally debilitating.

What would happen if we choose Love not fear. Love is so powerful, so strong, so enlivening.

So let us all choose Love not fear.

This inspirational video from Jim Carey is also worth watching. He talks about the power of Love:

Word for the week – Play

“Play is the highest form of research.” ~ Albert Einstein

Wikipedia says:


play is a range of voluntary, intrinsically motivated activities normally associated with recreational pleasure and enjoyment.[1] Play is most commonly associated with children and their juvenile-level activities, but play can also be a useful adult activity, and occurs among other higher-functioning (non-human) animals as well.”

Defintions of love

Valentines day make me think of love and what it actually is. The webster dictionary defines love as:

love  (lŭv)


1. A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
2. A feeling of intense desire and attraction toward a person with whom one is disposed to make a pair; the emotion of sex and romance.


a. Sexual passion.
b. Sexual intercourse.
c. A love affair.
4. An intense emotional attachment, as for a pet or treasured object.
5. A person who is the object of deep or intense affection or attraction; beloved. Often used as a term of endearment.
6. An expression of one’s affection: Send him my love.


a. A strong predilection or enthusiasm: a love of language.
b. The object of such an enthusiasm: The outdoors is her greatest love.
8. Love Mythology Eros or Cupid.
9. often Love Christianity Charity.
10. Sports A zero score in tennis.
For me the definition is best summed up by my parents.
63 years ago on Feb 14 my Mum and Dad married. From that came 6 children, many grandchildren (sorry too many to count) and 4 and half great-grandchildren. WOW! Amazing legacy. Congratulations Mum and Dad – we all love you and thank you for every minute of our lives.
