The Lotus….. The Flower of Life……


The Lotus Flower is often labeled the Flower of Life.  Not surprising,  it is certainly one of the oldest plants on this plant.   Over 145.5 millions years old, one of the few survivors of the Ice Age.

Many religions see, this true survivor,  the Lotus as a Spiritual Symbol. For countless centuries images of the Lotus Flower have decorated places of worship and gatherings. The visual symbol of good health, well being and good fortune.

Well, one whole week of the New Year under our belts……  and however positive we have been, the reality is that nothing has really changed.  It could be argued that we are now in a worse situation,  Covid statistics not looking good.  The only light on the horizon is the vaccination programme, but that isn’t a magic wand that will make CV disappear

There is a saying, “Where there is Life there is Hope“.   Like the Lotus Flower I guess we all need to show perseverance and a good deal of positive thinking.

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

    1. Thank you…… well that was all down to Trump. As an overseas observer one is reluctant to comment….. but we could see the way this was heading. Just hope calm can be created but my feeling is that it may never return in some areas.


  1. The reality that things here are WORSE than they were, so much worse, is demoralizing. It’s good to see something of beauty, so thank you, very much.

    1. Like the new vaccines, a new Leadership has to give us all hope. Both situations will take a long long time to heal the issues. I will try to keep giving you some positive images 🙂


      1. Thank you…It is 9:20 a.m. here and it is figuratively another dark, gloom filled day.
        Keep sharing your magic, I appreciate it.
