Negotiating the Year 2015

Happy New Year 2015 With Stylish Colorful Text And Snow

Struggling with a lonely life
Anxious in this time of strife,
Dealing with a life of pain
Hoping for financial gain,
Children causing parent’s grief
Wishing for some time relief.

You need a friend!

Seeing someone struggle too
Is there something you can do?
Troubles in this world abound
What solution can be found?
Suffering on a larger scale
You’ve survived to tell the tale.

Be a friend!

Sharing can relieve the pain
Revive the spirit back again,
Share your blessings those in need
Put away those thoughts of greed.
Joy elusive may be shared
When Divine Presence paired.

Work with a Friend

  2. Noble sentiment, well stated in verse and a good way to start the New Year. May it bring everything which you crave and, incidentally, some great writing and blogging. All the best!

    1. Thank you Mag, we surely do need those good wishes at our stage of life. I have deep respect for you for the work you’ve done with children and for the philosophy you have which is so sadly lacking in this current generation generally. All the best in 2015.


    1. Thank you Eric. What a privilege it has been to meet and get to know you in 2014. May the year 2015 bring you fulfilment. Ten thousand years to you as traditional Chinese would wish those they know and treasure.
