Off piste

Sort of.

And in Hamburg.

To give or not to give is a choice

Bouncing madly away from Ginawen

Take a minute to listen. And send prayers, good vibes or what ever up into the ether. Soothing and calming tinged with a bit of humour with respect to the ☆☆☆☆ And hope that ☆☆☆☆☆ can love the ☆☆☆☆☆ and be the better man! give him a hug and send him on his way. With the result of if no bridge is built at least it won't be knocked down.

One for one and one for all

We have to work together right.



One two three

  • Well said that man!😁 #onelove #yourock #ninjananna ❤❤❤

  • I hope the flat feet haven't come between them.

    Those edit stars must be called flat feet then.

    I love it.

  • Nice Nedd. But I'd take issue with 'living for today'. That is our world problem. No thought of what kind of planet we are creating for future generations.

  • Have been reflecting on your take on the words.

    If you just take the line living for today you have a powerful point. But in contex I think he can be for given for using it.

    It's an anti war song.

    It never occurred to me to see it that way. And I bore my friends witless whittling on about the need for conservation.

    Here's to us all working toward a better future.

    (The butterflies have just started to emerge around here. And what is the local farmer doing, hedge cutting and taking the verges back as far as they can. Depriving them of wild flowers to feed on. I take heart that in Sweden they hang back on verge cutting until. It's the small things that count).

    Have a good one.

  • My world is full of foolishness. My community group planned to sow wild flowers at the back of the village green. The suggestion was to spray the area with bloody Roundue weedkiller first. Give with one hand and destroy with the other . I've stopped it. Yeeha


  • Makes a body howl doesn't it?

    It seems that we like to sanitise our environment. I like to walk canal tow paths. Easy and flat. One runs out of steam when one meets any sort of incline these days, but the upshot is there are lovely untamed stretches along the banks sometimes. Quite gladdens the heart.

    You should see my postage stamp garden. I feel I have to compensate for the councils tidiness. It's all wild and untidy. They do say your garden reflects the soul.

    Thing is what are we teaching the children!

    And how the hell did you stop the roundup. Good on you.

  • The lady who is supplying the seeds was horrified when I told her so together we were a united force to be reckoned with. I live north of Inverness so still plenty of wild land around.

    If the garden reflects the soul ....... mine at the moment veers towards things to eat and lots of sprawling exuberant shrubs. And chickens. I'm lucky where I live. Mixed woodland at my back door that is community owned.

    Glad you enjoy your canals walks . Lots to see there if it's quiet.


  • I do love this song , although it can be a tad overused, the words will always be poignant and timeless. Unfortunately they will no doubt fall upon powerful but deaf ears. It's down to us to put them into practice. Also love "Across the Universe", makes me think things can be beautiful when I listen to it. Sending peace and love to the masses xxx

  • You have to believe that postitive vibes thrown out shake the worlds music up for the better.

  • Picking up on your point. I wonder if we should introduce children to the idea of do no harm at school. I like you wish that we could be more peaceful. But I think some demonstrations always got out of hand at times. When emotions run high it doesn't take much to flash. And it's not always the young!

    Its interesting to note that the power failure in New York in the seventies prompted much looting. And it was the poorer districts that took the worst hit.

    so to me Lennon and his appeal for sharring and a brotherhood of man maybe has much to say today.


    Just throwing you a link. And apologies for the fact the the BBC now require a sign up procedure.

    I thought you might be interested though.

    Thanks for batting the ball back maybe we can put the world to rights between us.

    I agree violence will never work only subdue for a bit.

    And to take the ball in a different direction. I wonder if interference in other countries affairs ever really helps. Change has to come from within.

    After all if some third party started to mouth off about how our counties run thier affairs. If the ideas differed from ours we would take a very dim view. And be right hacked off.

    Here's to Co existence.

    Give and take

    Live and let live.

    Over come with love man.

  • I am with your husband there. Change can only come from within. And it is the parties concerned business. There are probably exceptions, but politicians do not give due care and consideration. And intervention will mostly be self serving. I am not against financial aid. More military. Now we are so removed from the realities of the damage that can be reaped by someone miles away. It's chilling.

    We do not know others culture or what the historical contex is. If you help one side for example what about the others.

    There has been a brilliant BBC radio 4 programme called our man in the Middle East. That has been an eye opener.

    Never heard of your Team America. Shall have to suss it out.

    Pause for thought,

    be on the look out for fake news

    I am.

  • Wonderful thought my friend :)

  • i is hoping that you are rolling along ok. And enjoying your garden.Take care. And don't work too hard.


  • :) :)

  • Nah, you've lost me. Bouncing madly away from Ginawen. I don't get it.

  • Very off piste.

    If did come from your post about empathy. Putting yourself in another's shoes. Choosing to lighten another's life a little by caring and understanding. And doing the right thing.

    Ideas firing off at the slightest. I had just read your post when the G20 meeting flashed on the news.

    Our choices inform the way of the world.

    And Lennon's song says it all I reckon.

    Imagine a better place.

  • What is Right? Understanding and compassion for all yes but moral is too individual to have a "right "thing to do. We may think the right action are different actions. There for there is no right or wrong only our opinions of what would be best for the greater number of people or some other bases that could be agreed on.

    And even to that, my opinion of what would be best might be different from what you think is best.

    Also what is Ginawen? I have goggled the crap out of it and i can't figure it out. Is it just a region of Europe? As that is all i could get from my results and that's guessing.

  • Hahaha.... GOOGLE COULDN'T FIND ME! It's just little old me naturalnikki . I put a post on about empathy/lack of empathy and Nedd has kind of linked his thinking to that post. xx

  • That's hilarious. It makes sense as he said that in his reply, i just didn't pay attention to your name. Haha. That's such a me thing to do. :)

  • An area in Europe?....I'm gonna google it now...intrigued!

  • The google fill or whatever when you type in one word and it guesses what your next word will be...

    I typed in ginawen and it suggested ginawen Europe. But the results was nothing but Facebook and other stuff. So i guessed. :)

  • But i guess if it was an area there would've been a map with the area highlighted.
