<FONT FACE="Arial"><P ALIGN="JUSTIFY">Hello, and welcome to this, my home page. </P>
<P ALIGN="JUSTIFY">A lot of you may be thinking, "what has an uncarved block got to do with anything&#8230;?". Absolutely nothing, and that&#8217;s the beauty of it all. The idea of the uncarved block comes from Taoism (where it is described as wood within the forests). Typical "Kung Fu" stuff, but it means a way of living that is free of complications. As we go through our lives, we come across little problems and quite a lot of us blow them out of all proportion. Not my style, I'm afraid. </P>

<P ALIGN="JUSTIFY">Being an uncarved block means that you face up to adversity with a smile. Don&#8217;t ignore the problem because other people will add to it. Just face it with the idea that you&#8217;ve had worse&#8230; or, if you haven&#8217;t, other people certainly have. Every cloud has a silver lining, and tomorrow is another day.</P>
<P ALIGN="JUSTIFY">This doesn&#8217;t mean I'm a complete pacifist but it does mean I avoid a lot of trouble in life, simply because I have no marks on me. </P>
<P ALIGN="JUSTIFY">Just like an uncarved block.</P>
