In the B&B on Thursday night it was a treat to have a couple of hours to check out blogs and to follow some links on Facebook. I thought I'd share a few treasures with you here.
I had seen this video a few years back and it was lovely to be reminded of it by Denise at Denise's Planet. These children are remarkable and indeed so are the adults who came up with this wonderful idea to recycle rubbish.
We take so much for granted in our wealthy Western worlds - look at what can be achieved.
This one is especially for my lovely blogging friend Deborah at Temenos of the Blessing Light in Chicago - I know you'll be in love with this project :) A Children's Book you can Plant and it will grow into a tree.
I've been at a lot of funerals this year already and the topic has been at the front of our minds, how would our own final farewell be dealt with. For one I was asked to sing a special song for the couple - called One True Place - the lyric talked about the person not being gone, but being in the room next door. This piece of writing is from that angle and it just summed it up for me my feelings on the next life. I want to post it here so that I can keep it for myself. It was a lady that I met at a writing retreat last year had shared it on her Facebook page and I hope she doesn't mind me passing it on. It came via the blog of the writer M.J.Rose
