"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

The by-product of conversation was thought followed by progress.

When the ears heard sounds the eyes saw pictures – so they told us.

Two miles and one day from the vortex a birthday cake was offered as a sign of friendship.

The day before things had seemed normal, regular, just like every day before that.

Dancing over fences on a floating cloud of warm air, boundaries evaporated like a kettle blowing steam at visitors.

Let us raise a flag with little to say and no, or perhaps every, country to promote.

A grand piano was being played in the street, dogs gathered to listen.

The uniformed children were playing officially sanctioned games, with rules and restrictions.

The boards creaked as we walked.

Two surfers stood on their boards, so steadily it seemed liked we were the ones surfing.

Hail to the great breezes of the south.

This is also true – in this case with all and any solutions – with every event, every situation.

Seems just right.

Same shirt, different city.

The trees had been planted close together over 150 years ago, they now provided ample shade.

Groups gathered at cafes and restaurants to enjoy fine coffee and fresh pampered dishes.

The world existed from this place, not only in it or outside, but it emanated from the shade of old trees.

One month flamenco dancers made a guest appearance.

To them it was a promotion for their ticket sales, at the Grand Theatre of the Empire.

Now, I meet friends and gain insights.
