Share the lovvvvve.....

Throughout history we have sought to understand the world around us and, in the past, when we were not as scientifically aware, we would worship the very weather around us  The sun, moon and stars had their stories and we praised the gods of the earth and sky for helping us with our harvests and lives. The festival of Samhain (pronounced Sow-en), the precursor of our modern Halloween, was one of the parties held during the year to celebrate the New Year for the ancient Celts, November 1st.  After a…

sorry but I hate spiders.  That was what I said when I last saw my friend who offered to show me his tarantula.  I won’t go to his house.  He’s a hypnotherapist specialising in phobias.  He has phobia inducing things in his house.  It worries me……. so where did my fear come from?  I could blame my Nana who freaked out if one was in the same house as her, often going shopping to relax until Grandpa could remove it.

True to her word, our guide arrives and we begin a private tour of the life of Robert Henri. Immediately I am chagrined to discover nearly everything I thought I knew about Henri’s early life, is dead wrong. It seems, as many of us have, I have taken my idea of his life from the novel Son of a Gambling Man [Sandoz]. It is true, his father, John J. Cozad, was a gambler and founder of the town of Cozad, Nebraska, which is where the resemblance begins and ends.
