If only it was all so perfect but of course it's not with our insatiable appetite for the earth's resources, we'll be lucky to see any wildlife in the next 100 years.

A wonderful piece that I came across this morning.
When you look back on life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the ones you did.

“Listen to your being. It is continuously giving you hints; it is a still, small voice. It does not shout at you, that is true. And if you are a little silent you will start feeling your way. Be the person you are. Never try to be another, and you will become mature. Maturity is accepting the ...

This week's blog: Stop trying to fit in http://juliansummerhayes.com/7789-2/
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson. So many people, in a desperate need to fit in, are lost. It wasn't always this way: as children, we didn't need to think about things, we just were.

Dreadful experience. I went in on Easter Sunday with my three children aged 10, 15 and 17. It was pouring with rain, and we were pleased to have the opportunity to share what we thought would be a welcoming experience in old-worldy surroundings. Even before we had sat I was set upon by one of the staff who rudely enquired if we were residents or guests. When I told her we were guests, she effectively ushered us out the bar area - which looked more like a coffee shop. We were told that if we wanted to stay we had to move next door (in other words we don't want your custom), nothwithstanding there were plenty of tables. I recall now that the last time I went in it was also a miserable experience as there was blocked chimney and the smell internally was awful. My advice is that if you have a family, go somewhere else. There are plenty of other nice places to eat in Dartmouth.

Great place for a quick coffee and they were one of the first places in Totnes to offer free Wi-fi. The cakes are OK but they could do a bit around making more stuff on the premises. I usually go there to catch up with my emails. The better experience is to take the kids to the painting area and have a coffee. The staff are always helpful and quite a few adults also hang out to paint a plate or two.

This was the second time I stayed at the hotel. The first time I was in a room overlooking the car park. Although the hotel has been recently refurbished, everything feels it has been squeezed in to accommodate the building. It was reasonably well appointed although the bathroom felt tired. This time (23 April) I was put in the front of the hotel. It was a miserable experience as there is a pub and restaurant immediately opposite, and all I could hear was the crowd opposite getting steadily more drunk and raucous. As a consequence I slept poorly. If I was looking to stay in Southampton again I would stay at the Jury's. The rooms are nicer, quieter and overall it is a better experience. In my book the Mercure does not warrant the £90 per night for a single room with nothing else. It was more in the Premier Inn category.

I was privileged to attend several of the Zen classes (and I still intend to do so). I had never properly sat before, but I was made to feel very welcome. And Richard who led the class was open, warm and forthcoming in exploring some difficult Zen questions. If you are thinking of exploring Buddhism then I can highly recommend the centre.
