RIP Leonard Nimoy

RIP Leonard Nimoy. He Lived long and Prospered and helped us to dream of the stars. He also inspired me as a young boy with Asperger Syndrome to feel that there was a way of fitting in even if I didn't think in the same way as everybody else. smiley - wah

Social conundrum

I don't know if anyone's reading my posts, but I wondered if any of my hootoo friends could give me some advice. smiley - erm I'm fed up with just seeing people through the medium of a computer screen, but for best part of 20 years I've been living on a tight budget like most people. This has led to me not taking up invitations to people's weddings, birthdays etc and now no one invites me to anything, bar a 70th birthday of my best friend's mum a couple of years back! smiley - tongueout Anyway, I have a birthday coming up and it's a landmark and part of me wants to have a party but I really don't think anyone will take me seriously if I say that. Do I tell people why I haven't seen them for years or keep quiet about it? Do I issue invitations and run the risk of being confirmed as a social pariah or just not celebrate my birthday as has been the case for the last two decades or so? Any advice or opinions would be great as I don't want to make a complete fool of myself on Facebook! smiley - ok

Perfect Christmas Playlist

I pride myself that I have a certain ability to put together playlists. smiley - smiley For me, the perfect playlist shouldn't be jarring, moving from uptempo to ballad and back again with no thought for the overall effect on a party. For that reason, a lot of the Christmas albums I have can be irritating. Last Christmas I decided to do something about it! I looked for inspiration to my musical heartland of the 70s and 80s, the heyday of the Christmas song and mixed in the old favourites with some more obscure tracks.
smiley - ok
Open up itunes or spotify or take your own CDs as I did and make up the following playlist as the perfect backing to your Christmas party with my compliments. Let me know what you think if you do use it.

Yoga and creativity

A month into my new yoga regime and I'm amazed at how much difference it has made. smiley - biggrin Physically I feel better and my flexibility is improving. The main difference, though, is mentally. I am significantly more relaxed and it seems to have unblocked my creative muse as I've restarted work on a book that I first tried to write 6 months ago. Despite my first two Kindle books not really making much of an impact I've decided to restart because I can now view it with more perspective. I enjoyed writing the first two books, a handful of people enjoyed reading them so what have I got to lose. smiley - smiley By the way, my first two books are on Amazon under the name David G. Pearce if anyone's interested!
smiley - run
