Motivational Notes


A little something to cheer up people’s day! I stuck them on people’s cars at the doctor’s surgery. Although I did feel rather sheepish about it as I looked very suspicious going around everyone’s cars and taking photos… Maybe stick them somewhere other than on people’s cars… 😛

My New Year’s Resolution: Absolutely Strawless

I’m afraid I disagree with Beyonce in that no one can be ‘flawless’. However, this year I do aim to be strawless! It’s one easy way to be more environmentally friendly, not only by contributing less to the demand of wasteful single-use plastic, but also by  reducing the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans that kill marine wildlife. Poor turtles. 😦

And let’s face it, it’s not like they’re exactly essential. So if you’re looking for something small yet achievable to set yourself, please follow suit and let me know! 🙂


Some Perspective for the New Year

“I really believe that if the political leaders of the world could see their planet from a distance of 100,000 miles their outlook could be fundamentally changed. That all-important border would be invisible, that noisy argument silenced. The tiny globe would continue to turn, serenely ignoring its subdivisions, presenting a unified façade that would cry out for unified understanding, for homogeneous treatment. The earth must become as it appears: blue and white, not capitalist or Communist; blue and white, not rich or poor; blue and white, not envious or envied.”

– Michael Collins, Apollo 11 Astronaut
