29 Dec

As I look at 2015, which will shortly be coming to a close, I cannot believe yet another year has passed so quickly.

Spiritual connections

23 Dec

The spiritual, emotional and mental strength of a relationship are our most intimate and the strongest. The ancient teachings of Buddhism suggest that we can transform our relationships into spiritual partnerships and I believe that needs to happen if we are to get the best out of any relationship.

Soulful connections make people kinder, more compassionate and wiser, help change the way we function individually …

My Cerebral Palsy journey

22 Dec

As a follow on from my previous ‘Piecing my history together’ blog and having looked through my medical history again, I now have a fuller picture of my Cerebral Palsy.

My Neurological Consultant confirms that my MRI scan shows:

“An old stroke in the distribution of the right anterior cerebral artery and there is extensive damage to the right frontal …
