"Yes, it is the small things that make so much of a difference to us. Everyone expects the big things to be done right, it is what is done with the small important stuff that makes for the experience.

A small love story written in October 2009.

"Gabriel, there are some people in the world that have this gift. They are like a good omen and everything they seem to touch makes life better for other people. I tell you that man has that gift.

New Post from me - "The attraction of the religion, some people see more it as a philosophy, appears to be the 'spiritual but not religious' teachings of inward reflection and correction of self. Buddhism helps people end their suffering by avoiding greed, hatred and ignorance with the ultimate aim to reach the state of enlightenment (Nirvana)..." http://www.benjyellis.net/blog/2017/03/buddhism_the_gentle_religion.php

"These corporations do not add value. They grow big enough to win nice big Government contracts by buying up smaller companies and amalgamating them, firing staff, restructuring and generally picking up some new customers in the process."
