Time is wasted on us I feel...
We always keep things by time.
Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years.
To preoccupied by the time we have spent doing things that we don't see how much more we waste.

Time is prescious. it is limited
So make it count

Now does anyone remember that 2003 song that reached 16 number one places and 22 top twenty spots in the charts around the globe? That was the top UK selling single of 2003?
Where is the love?
I was listening to this song and the words in which had so many people agreeing with it and saying yes where is the love, what have we got to six years later?
Can we really say we've taken that song to heart...

"I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin'
Selfishness got us followin' our wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema
Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
Instead of spreading love we're spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found
Now ask yourself

People killin',
people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek
Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above'
Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love"

Well what is our world coming too

2009 started on a Thursday, the last years of the 2000's, national year of astonomy and natural fibres.

Where is the love

Our Love can be the revolution
So here I stand
Outstreched arm and outsteched heart
Crying for the things I've seen
The destinations and outcome that could have been
And as I try to make sense of it all
Words try fail and escape me
I don't have all the answers to all of the questions
I don't understand the reason
But I trust Jesus and I know
Our love can be the revolution!

How about the rest of 2009.... maybe it's time for us to remember the love!

Mundesley Beach and a quiet old church

I wanted to say goodbye to a few things yesterday. Origanlly it wasn't even the place I turned up at. I took time to think first, so I went to the beach. Whilst thinking I had time to write.

Take time to stop

and listen

I went to the place where God's voice is always clearer

Maybe it's the sea air

or incomprehendable sound of the waves

I don't know maybe the wind chills me stops me stressing, makes me relax

or the air so fresh makes you realise how cluttered your world is.

Maybe this place is just happy for the memories. Laughter and sand.

Or maybe here I am just small and insignificant


I think this place is great because it is never the same.

It changes, always just a fleeting moment. You have to say goodbye, always. Maybe knowing you can never come back makes it easier. Maybe the quiet moments alone to listen are significant. No rebellious Pirates


I walked along the beach path

the tide was coming in, so no one was really on the beach.

the breeze blowing the cobwebs away

and peace filling my heart.

Last time I came here I cam with a friend and we nearly got run over. We p[layed crazy golf!

Today is a lot different.

Space and time to think

To say Goodbye? I will return here, just not like this, not for a while

Drama today did not play the air unlike next time I'm sure

today wasjust hope, peace and salt.

And two cups of tea.

Time to start living adventourously

not shirking responisbility

time to get on with life.


I did say goodbye, briefly, not to the beach I will go back there soon, but to a place that I should have done years ago.

And as I reread my writings today, I feel no sadness, no joy. They where words of one of lifes journeys. One which had not quite started and has no where near ended.It was about the courage to take change go, with change, maybe even be that change. They are words I'm sure all people wonder at some point when walking along the beach of the known to unknown, espicially when the tide is rough, just some prayers go out for home, not the bit we don't know.

Drama, drama, drama

Drama, drama, drama

What sometimes I wouldn't do for the quiet life... I can see it now (if this was a movie the screen would go cloudy and camera would move up as if in to a dream like state in which the character would ponder a life of quietness.)

Nice house, with loving husband, pretty kids who are doing reasonably well, regular visits from family and friendly neighbours, all smartly turned out to go to church on sunday. Days on the beach, walking the dog, aughing on a boat. Cooking, cleaning, ironing, transporting and organising, cosmopolitan with the girls every friday... probably the biggest drama being what someone said about my cakes at the church fete.

In some ways I would love this life, it sounds so simple, so care free, but would I not miss the drama. Well it makes a nice day dream and even if I only get a part of that (husband, kids and complaints babout cakes) I'm sure I will be happy...

As for now back to the constant that is...
Drama, drama, drama
