1. Love in the Time of Recession.

An unusually harsh winter lingers over much of the northern hemisphere as the credit crunch / recession / depression further darkens the emotional climate. For so many, it's just not the mood for celebrate spring, love and life - yet Valentines is just around the corner.

Because it is such a dark season, it's all the more important to be good to your heart, your sweetie's heart and the priceless small acts of love and kindness. Don't forget those friend's in your life who maybe facing these tumultuous times alone or lonely.

It's time I think to invest in the gold of real smiles - smiles, freely given away, yield 1000% return. The more we give, the more we get.
Kindness generates unbelievable BTW while being fully sustainable and leaves zero carbon footprint.

Spring is just around the corner. Really.

Wishing you peace and pleasure.
