So, it’s my final day for the quote challenge I was nominated for by Niki over at The Richness of a Simple Life and my final quote is my favourite of all time:

This sums up the great adventure that is life. It is about having the courage to let go, to step outside our comfort zone and experience new things. To be fearless and live a full life Continue reading “Quote Challenge – #3”

This has long been a favourite of mine. I first came across it when I was at university and I had to complete a museum review for my studies. It was engraved on an exhibit that housed little, tiny children’s shoes. Shoes of children who had perished in German Continue reading “Quote Challenge – #2”

Today being my first day I’ve select the below:

It stood for “lots of love” and adorned many a letter or card between friends and family. For better or worse, that meaning is considered old school now. Funnily enough, I have an old school friend (pun intended) who still signs her emails to me with the “lots of love” acronym. But she is a rare-breed, a lone voice of defiance in a world where LOL has come to mean “lots of laughs” and is more prolific than a bunch of 20-something’s on a Saturday night.

But here’s the thing about LOL. Continue reading “On the subject of LOL”
