Japans Answer to teaching children empathy
This clip was passed to me yesterday and I was so deeply moved by it, I felt it important to pass it on. ‘Children Full of Life’ is a short documentry (separated into 5 x 10 mins clips on you tube) on a teacher in japan who is teaching his grade 4 students to develop empathy.
The depth of the little kids emotions and the ability they develop with this teacher to share them was deeply touching. I was moved to tears a few times, proud of them, proud of their courage. These little people are learning perhaps one of the most important human skills – empathy.
If schools around the globe, begin including in their ciriculum, lessons in empathy, compassion, remorse and forgiveness we may in the next generations, experience a whole new level at which humanity communicates.
I was inspired and so very proud of these boys and girls.

Todays women celebrate their bumps..
celebrate your pregnancy
Thank God (no blasphermy intended,I am truly grateful) the days of women hiding their bumps under large unflattering frocks are long gone.. While pregnancy can at times be a trying time for women as their bodies change and energy levels go up and down, todays women are celebrating their bumps in a multitude of fabulously fun ways.
‘Doing something fun like body painting helps women celebrate their body changes’ says Vanessa who after a particularly terrible week decided to book herself a body painting appointment. ‘I came out of the session feeling alive, sexy and proud of my body. I was totally in love with my bump again. I highly recomend it’
Body painting is fast becoming one of the most popular of pregnant womens celebration experiences. Many artists now offer a body painting session with a professional photographer included to give you an unforgettable keepsake of your 9 month journey.
All artists, body painters and anyone who offers fun experiences for women to celebrate their bumps please leave your website addresses in the comments below so we can find you.
Treat yourselves to a fun experience in celebration of your journey…

The ‘war on drugs’ is being funded by tobacco, alcohol and pharmaceutical companies.. Why???
Barney Frank’s comment ‘This notion that we somehow have to approve or criminalize all human activities is a great misunderstanding of Governments’ really turned flicked the switch for me..
I feel like I’ve been living in a cloudy haze and have just walked into the clear clean air.. I never thought about life from this perspective before.
I certainly don’t need the govt to define all my activities into good bad/ right wrong/ approve criminalize categories. I’m a decent person and I can think for myself. I can make my own judgements.
If we are not hurting other people or our planet, then it is our god given right to live love and laugh in whatever way we feel like it!
Who do governments think they are, putting their noses so deeply into everyones business. They don’t own us, we are free people.
The role of government is to be our representatives not our masters!
