Dear readers

Half the year has gone and I would like to invite you all to think things over a bit.

The Earth is walking down the path of evolution and it is about time we became better people.

As a wise Brazilian writer, Machado de Assis, once said, ‘Forgetting is a need. Life is like a blackboard, in which destiny has to clean it up before writing down a new story.’

Up to a point, I agree…it is necessary to forget what has gone if we want to believe in a new start for things. Becoming better people involves understanding, forgiving, silencing, watching, learning, teaching.

Making a difference is just for the few who can be concerned about others, offer a helping hand, a shoulder for one to cry on. Making a difference is for those who have the eyes to see, the soul to feel and the will to give.

It is definitely time to give, to help, to renew, to recycle. Recycling is recreating. Recycling values, beliefs and attitudes.

So let’s rethink our values and not be afraid of making the same old mistakes. Let’s do as Albert Einstein once inspired us: ‘One who has never made a mistake, has never tried anything new’.
