SINEM'S IN THE HOUSE.
***Update, 12.21: By popular demand, the site is Brougham Castle, in Cumbria. (Promise, I wasn't going to keep it a secret!) For more information on this site where a Roman fort stood before the Vieuxpont family built their own castle on the grounds, visit http://www.visitcumbria.com/pen/brougham.htm or the English Heritage website, http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/server/show/conProperty.142***
"A cloud does not know why it moves in such a direction and at such speed... It feels an impulsion... this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons."
Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Livingston_Seagull
Sometimes, it's all about looking at the world from a different perspective.
The solutions to life's riddles that twist and bend our minds out of shape, the answers to troubles that wake us up in sweat at three pm in the morning, the broad horizons hidden behind the boundaries we set to our lives, are all there, just an inch out of our reach. Sometimes all it takes is to lift our head up, defiant against the dark clouds of gloom, look beyond the clouds and see the sunshine, look through the clouds and see the silver lining, just to take a few steps back every now and again, to take a few steps forward, to take a few step up to see a whole new world open up, one which we never knew was there, or possible at all.
Sometimes all it takes to find your dreams, is to reach beyond the darkness of nightmares.
All it takes to realise them, to reach beyond the boundaries we set ourselves.
Today and for the rest of your life, climb up a tree, climb up a castle, climb up all those inhibitions, 'I can't do that..' 'I am not good enough...' 'I don't have the means to...', and take a new look at life through Jonathan Livingston's eyes. Find your purpose in life and go after it.
