So to make up for the long silence, here are some images of Tasmania where I've been working these past few weeks.
And for a bit of Zen.....
As you can see, despite me returning home feeling pretty exhausted after some fairly intense Medical work, there was still time and opportunity to see some beautiful things in and around Hobart in Tasmania.
And that's the message for today.
If you actively seek to fill your mind with glimpses of beauty, your mind will retain them. But if you continually fill your mind with regurgitated news or other peoples' ideas then that's what your mind will feed on too.
In my books I try to balance all the sad, bad and ugly things that DO happen to ordinary, good people with the fact that so many of those ordinary good people can find solace and comfort in the smile of another or in the wisps of a white cloud against a clear blue sky.
My challenge for you all? Actively seek the beauty around you, and at the end of each day write down what you've seen or experienced. I promise you that it will change your life.
BTW - the latest book in the Renaissance Brothers series is close to completion (sorry for the delay). And Captain Scully is going through it's final edit and should be ready for a limited publication in hard back shortly as well.
