This week’s Daily Post Challenge “Earth” & the celebration of Earth Day has given me much opportunity to think about the world we live in: during my runs, visiting the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum , culminating in National Geographic’s Earth Day Run. Continue reading “Thinking on Earth”

As we greet the Christ child, we sing one of our family favourites: not a typical Christmas carol, but one which we feel reflects the joy of the occasion.
“I danced in the morning when the world was begun
And I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun

At Bethelem I had my birth.

I am the Lord of the Dance,” said he.
“I’ll lead you all wherever you may be,
I will lead you all in the Dance,” said he.
Wishing you all a blessed Christmas!

in the name of love.
What are you anticipating this season?
