I don’t know about you, but this January I am feeling extra invigorated (even though I am a tad fatter than four weeks ago!) The start of the new year gives all of us scope to review and reenergise – not that we need a seasonal reason to do this! But it feels like the time to draw a line under old grievances and embrace life and lifestyle afresh. I am also…

I remember as a little boy throwing a ruler at a school friend, it hit him and he was upset. He then said ‘I’m going to tell the teacher’. My instant reaction was to say ‘No, I’m going to tell the teacher’ which I did. This is one of my earliest memories: telling the teacher that ‘I’ had thrown a ruler at someone else, that I knew it was wrong, I shouldn’t have done…

I met with an old friend the other day. We hadn’t seen each other for seven years and aside from a few wrinkles and grey hairs (both of us), by all accounts we were pretty much the same people but both heading towards 40. I’m crossing my fingers that they find a cure for age-related illness and death but on the off chance that they don’t, I got thinking about things I MUST experience…

I once read that acting was the highest state a human could achieve. Although Buddha might have something to say about this, it does appear to be true. Take a recent report which showed that successful people often have psychopathic tendencies, one of which is being able to control and switch their state at will. This makes total sense as is evident when the vast majority of our species is reacting to their environment…

I came across an article about Regina Brett who is now 90 years of age, and looking very well with it! But it isn’t her current age that you will find most interesting, it’s the fact that at 45 she was diagnosed with Cancer and it took her toll, so she decided to write down her life lessons. The truth is she isn’t 90 she is in fact 54, all of a sudden her…

I have very recently become slightly obsessed with my mortality. I say recently, I have actually had to fight away the thoughts of death ever since I can remember. As far as I know that may be the case for everyone. It isn’t so much that I fear death but more to do with my desire to live forever. When I say this, most people react with ‘why?’, which I find really strange, and…

I had a crisis recently about my ability to help my son, who achieved an excellent report from school. Let’s get this into perspective: he is only 5 and I am 39 so have many years to draw on. My concern was that on the one hand I really want him to excel in ticking all the boxes of school by getting good grades and conquering the curriculum, but on the other hand…
