First of all: Happy New Year to all my blogger friends around the world. A new year means new opportunities and new possibilities. I hope we will all be able to accomplish some of our goals and not the least develop ourselves into better human beings.
I also hope for a more peaceful and compassionate world. The unfortunate truth is that unrest, war and disasters are the reality for too many people around the globe. May this year result in better living and less violent for all those who suffer as of today. I know it’s much to ask for and most likely won’t happen, but if we all pull together to make the world a better place to live, I believe it’s possible to change the trajectory. Right now for instance a new hunger catastrophe is mounting on Africa’s Horn. Combined with war and violence which are still raging this area, we may see yet another tragedy afflicting millions of people. As a matter of fact next week I will go to the Horn myself to report on the situation. You will be able to get an update on what is happening through daily post on this blog (of course depending on internet access) .
On a more cheerful note I look forward to developing the exchange with all of you through the blog sphere. I think we have had some very interesting discussions last year – and I hope we will be able to continue this exchange into the new year. In addition I look forward to reading your blogs and keep learning from you. Finally I hope that I will be able to see or meet some of you in one of my workshops I plan to teach this year. As it is, my first workshop is the eWorkshop starting January 26th. There are still a few spots available if this sounds interesting (more info here) .
May 2015 be a good year for all!
