Creating this resource grew out of the Covid-19 pandemic that has had such a significant impact on our world and peoples of the world.  What began as a social media exercise has developed into a soothing six-week daily personal reflection process.

The aim of this reflective process is to assist you as the writer to connect or perhaps reconnect with your strengths, your dreams or your purpose in life. To support more inspiration and deeper reflections we have included the mediums of images, music, stories and art to arouse the creative genius in each of us.

Make the definition too narrow, it becomes meaningless, make it too wide, and the whole human race becomes involved in the dragnet. In strictness we are all mad when we give way to prejudice, to vice, to vanity: but if all the passionate, prejudiced and vain people were locked up as lunatics, who is to keep the key to the asylum?
