There can be some lovely reflections in the lake in our Park. Usually I exclaim at the still ones, each tree, each bush, reflected perfectly in the water. A different, upside-down world. But I also like the reflections where the wind just ruffles the surface. A wind of change, indeed. There is that rather wobbly look about everything, as though a giant hand was gripping hold and shaking it backwards and forwards. And maybe I should give my life a shake up - do I want to be doing exactly the same things next year, and the year after? A perfect reflection of my life now? And the answer - No, no, a thousand times no! If I thought the rest of my years would be more of the same, I'd curl up somewhere and quietly expire!

Now then, how can I change my life to get a bit of zip into it? Answers on a postcard, please!

Thank you for the lessons.

Hi Gilly, nice to meet you! About zipping up your life, well I don't know if I have any advice for you. I'm at the point where I would like to slow mine down. But I'm sure if you ask God what He might have in mind for you, something new might pop up. But you know what they careful what you ask for!

PS your blog is lovely. Very peaceful photos and charming commentaries.

Bless you,

Good advice from Maureen there. Why don't you write a little story about how you'd like to be in a couple of years time - what you'd like to be doing, what you'd like to have done - and then do some of the things! There are endless possibilities but you have to make them happen!
