As the last month of yet another year is removed from our calendars it may be well to REMEMBER we at least can have that privilege. It may not have been the year we had envisaged and it may have left us with many obstacles to overcome: physically, emotionally and mentally.

What we do with the coming year is not only up to us as individuals but as a whole and as custodians of the planet, given the task of caring and nurturing Mother Earth, teaching and guiding our off spring but above all, loving and respecting our neighbours, I believe we can be ready to take on the new year.

A very Happy Christmas and Healthy New Year to All
