"Wisdom and inspiration: thought provoking, humourous, delightful, guru-like, quirky, energizing, enabling, challenging, alerting, awakening….the way individuals, teams and groups start every day as a Great Day" – The Replies Book

Before the sun sinks too far – we do not wish it to drown – we want to say a few words

– do not doubt that you have created conditions under which we have met the greatest of people, wonderful and fine and joyful

– we have not yet learnt to produce the symphony of light and heat you offer

– even when cruel and burning we see beauty in hallucination at the time, and cooling later

Rise again you scatterer of night and new chance for brave knights!

Science has the answers….a nonsensical statement. Within the knowledge of science answers can be found to everything known within science so far.

Science is not a person, a library, a thing, it is a huddle of items of knowledge in the world.

Does science contain the knowledge to give an answer, a true one, to any possible question? 

No. Not yet!

The answers to more questions will be discovered tomorrow and the next day and on into the future.

But, when you learn that science and “the arts” are not totally disconnected, not the opposing walls of a racketball court, then you are ready to make real progress. 

I am. We are. Let’s go.

Seeking sense using  a complicated formula while many people walk by. 

The wise men and women of the city were sure they had made things too complicated.

Could we not just say “yes” or “no” without debating every single simple point. 

That was it! Simple points. Keep it to that. 

Did the Mad Hatter have the answer?

Have we been trumped or shall we wait until May? But perhaps there is nothing to put in. 

Yes, you may laugh now… if you need to.

In upside down bell jar moves, the markets may stall.

I think that’s what they said while I was waiting to order a cappuccino and croissant.

The ideas, the information and in fact the knowledge to be gained when conversations one is not part of float into the listening mind…amazing.

Most stories. allegedly fiction had seeds sown, the fine dust of ideas from real life events.

The traffic streaming across a narrow bridge contains many ideas amongst the drivers and passengers, the radios, and listeners.

There is a better solution to every obstacle, which transforms it into a highway of flourishing evolution and progress.

Mix and match.

The metaphor merely meted out more.

The merriment of flickering grass was comfortably contagious.

We are mortal veering on astounding longevity.

As they all say, the quality is all important. A long tedious and viewless journey is less beneficial than the feisty, tasty, lively full flung shorter version.

We take the winding road and leave the straight-aheads to get lost in the pleasures of dark alleyways.

Do not ask for whom the sun rises.

Let it be sentient.
