‘Fifty-four years after releasing their debut album,The Rolling Stones are in the recording studio working on their next one.
When Keith Richards was asked why, at the age of 74 with over $300million in the bank, he feels the need to write a new album, he replied, “If I’m not composing, I’m decomposing.”
Richards was then asked “But don’t you find it stressful working 12 hours a day at the age of 74?” He replied: “Stress isn’t working 12 hours a day doing a job you love. Stress is working 8 hours a day doing a job you hate.”
Harvard psychologist Shawn Achor says that the happiest people are those that express themselves and create everyday ….. whether this is a song, a soufflé, a spreadsheet …. or whatever …. the choice is yours’ ~ Sunil Bali
The passing of the Blood Moon over Durban South Africa would just not feel right for me unless I got a bit creative.
This Wednesday morning just gone at North Beach I was reminded how very RICH I am
I am loved, I have a roof over my head, a warm bed and my stomach does not ache with hunger when falling asleep at night 💖
Tim Bergling better known by his stage name Avicii was a Swedish musician, DJ, re-mixer and record producer.
Yesterday he died age 28.
Below is a section of his song “The Nights”. He also said I want to be remembered for the life I lived not the money I made…
One day my father—he told me,
“Son, don’t let it slip away.”
When I was just a kid I heard him say,
“When you get older
Your wild life will live for younger days
Think of me if ever you’re afraid.”
He said, “One day you’ll leave this world behind
So live a life you will remember.”
My father told me when I was just a child
These are the nights that never die
My father told me”

“May the blessing of God’s soft rain be on you,
Falling gently on your head, refreshing your soul
With the sweetness of little flowers newly blooming.
May the strength of the winds of Heaven bless you,
Carrying the rain to wash your spirit clean
Sparkling after in the sunlight.
May the blessing of God’s earth be on you,
And as you walk the roads,
May you always have a kind word
for those you meet” ~ Irish Blessing

“Happiness is actually found in simple things, such as taking my nephew around the island by bicycle or seeing the stars at night. We go to coffee shops or see airplanes land at the airport” ~ Andrea Hirata
I saw a photo by Štefan Štefančík photography on Pexels – Free High Quality Photos and it really caught my eye. It was of an airplane, free to use and I thought let me play around and add in an interesting sky i.e. lightning!

Good Morning Durban!

Yesterday Rohan Botha claimed this morning’s sunrise would be great. I looked at the weather forecast and saw 0% clouds, which was not appealing. Lucky I listened to Rohan!
