The start of another month which will see me being creative and producing new work. October is already full of disturbing news, from further indications of ethnic cleansing to people being deprived the right to vote. A sign of the times and indicator of necessary change? My thoughts extend to those effected by last night’s Vegas shootings, as well of those still quietly suffering the aftermath of hurricanes and earthquakes, away from the eyes of this week’s media. This year’s tragedies only show the importance of the relationships, lifestyles and values that make our lives; they are things we too often take for granted. Start your week as you mean to go on, enjoying it to the maximum, celebrating it with those who unquestionably count and capitalising on the opportunities life provides. Life is a one time offer so use it well!
