ThankfulThursday 28th November 2013
I can not believe how quickly the end of November has come around whilst I've not been looking. So, yesterday was Thanksgiving in the USA, and even though the mark on the calendar only really means a special something to those of you who are American, a day of thankfulness spans the entire global community in the most simple expression of appreciation.
It goes without saying of course that we should appreciate the people around us every day, but it does no harm at all to stop for a moment on a particular day to send a loving message to people who touch your life, even if you've never met them face to face.
The advent of the internet has enabled us to find like minded people in every country in the world. People who fight on in the face of adversity, struggle but succeed, practice relentlessly to improve, share without a second thought the things they have learnt, and inspire with the simple desire to help others

Get Your 'Stashe On Contest 2013 CLOSEDWhat is Movember?
During the month of November each year, Movember asks men across the world to grow a moustache (or Mo') with the aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Mo Bros are helping to change the face of men’s health by effectively becoming walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by promoting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Together, we are truly changing the face of men’s health.

a hospital bird with soot in her lungsshe slept through a car crash
that almost killed her,
through whitewhite walls
where her lover dies
nobody thought she'd make it
but she woke up a few months later
with flowers in her hair
and ash in her airway
trying to remember how to start all over
but forgetting to remember how to live.
fall slipped from her open eyes
and winter crawled in for a long hibernation
to her the clouds looked sick
and pale like they might
let everything inside them out,
but she opened up wide instead,
spilling blood where there was none to be spilled.
her heart slipped down the street
and with unsteady hands
she stitched in a bird and cut off its wings.
Keep in Touch!
