Excerpt From My Journal 12th April 2012

WE ARE WHO WE BELIEVE WE ARE.  All obstacles are only in the mind. There are no limitations apart from those the mind invents. If I believe in those limitations, if I truly believe that they are tangible and that they really do exist, then so they are, and so they do.

To believe in anything is to feed it, nourish it, strengthen it.  Believe in obstacles and they will bar the way.  Know, instead, that they are only fleeting inventions of the mind, and so they will be.

It is the lower mind that sets boundaries and puts limitations on our dreams.  The heart is forever free-thinking, willing to take chances, to live its dreams. 

We can change our destiny, and that of the world, by changing our thoughts and beliefs.  We can turn any situation around, because nothing is ever set in stone, even if it is written in the stars, and even if it has been prophesied for millennia.

Lonely Planet Chooses North Wales

North Wales has been chosen as one of the best places in the world to visit.  It comes in at number 4 in ‘Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Best in Travel 2017′, and is the only region in the UK to make the listing.  So a great opportunity for me to showcase some of my favourite places in my beautiful homeland. 

And the stunning Italianate Village of Portmeirion

Croeso i Ogledd Cymru!  Welcome to North Wales.

the blue sky my fretted dome shall be,

And the sweet fragrance that the wild flower yields

Shall be the incense I will yield to thee.”
