Thought for Today - Have Faith

Today do not look for the answers in your life as they make you narrow minded. Have faith today and realize that everything in your life is just experience, there is no good or bad in it and what you call 'difficult' at this moment in your life, is your greatest teacher.

Thought for Today - Observe Yourself Without Judgement

You can only change things in your life when you are aware about the way you do or approach things now. Are you conscious about what and how you do things. Have you lately observed or ask yourself if you can improve or want to change your behavior, points of views or actions?

Way to Go

cyprus blog

It has been a few weeks since I posted to this blog my apologies but I have been busy organising my next trip to Cyprus in a few weeks time. Last year I visited in April and it was spent in a bit of a whirlwind as I travelled here and there promoting my book as posted in 'My Promo Tour'. This year I want to take a more leisurely approach and enjoy the scenery a bit more.

However I will be keeping my eyes peeled for any venues that might want to take a few copies to sell as well as visiting contacts I have already made. Best of all my friend Elena Savvides of Orexi Cyprus has offered to host an author's lunch for me. This will entail most importantly some of her delicious food, she is a magician in the kitchen her speciality being Lebanese and Greek food as well as Italian. So my mouth is watering at the thought and as a sideline I will be on hand to sign any copies of AK CoP that people might want to purchase, not a bad way to spend an afternoon eh? If you are interested in a delicious lunch in the secret garden contact Elena direct we have arranged for it to be held on the 30th May a Friday.

Thought for Today - Are You Listening Carefully?

How wonderful will it be when someone is really listening to you without interfering or the need to express their own points of view? Do you know your reasons to make conversation or how you listen to someone else. Are you listening carefully what people say or are you already formulating your own opinion.

Mary's Dinner Club Stories - The Bread Museum

bread museumLast Sunday’s bread baking event at the Plumisto Psomi bread museum with owner/founder Dorita Voskaridou had yet again a totally new, absolutely magical feel to it. And I figured out why - that place is so cozy and friendly with its light flooded rooms and its simple, practical style, one feels right at home. An especially enchanting feeling considering one is in a museum - albeit a museum filled with the warm, earthy energy of decorated bread covering the entire history of bread in Cyprus.

I had decided that it being a late Sunday morning, it would be the perfect time to welcome guests with a glass of sparkling wine which always gives such a festive party kind of touch to things.
