 March 2015 Update
Thought for the update

Its time to Change.
 
It is time to change, to look inside ourselves, to step into our power and to influence others. It is now time to look inside ourselves, for the change within ourselves.
 
The system we have now needs to die, it distributes wealth and enhances poverty. The change must some from within us, we need to step into our own power as cultural creatives and begin/support the change to a new system, a new way of being.
 
Wishing you all luck with that change.
 
Here is a video on all of us....’The Cultural Creatives’ which might inspire you over Easter and beyond. In the US  it gave rise to the LOHAS  Green Consumer Trend - Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability
