This website has been created by Anne Yarwood, resident in Ascot for over 50 years, to show how individuals CAN effect change… can DO something about their concerns, in an imaginative way.

 

Dear Readers,

This month’s theme is :-

KEEP ON GOING ON

 

I quite fancy myself as The Crone: the old woman holding wisdom.

What I do, wrapped in that mantle, is LISTEN…for many an hour..listen to friends and family. And what I hear is inspirational bravery…determination, gritting of teeth, stoic acceptance, loyalty, immense kindliness, putting yourself out, EYES ON A DISTANT HORIZON. This edition of our website (which always honours INSPIRATION) honours this often unacknowledged, unseen goodness of people, determined to take life forward.. These actions keep the world going amidst outward evidence of cruelty, injustice and horror; all of us ,leaf- cutting ants…

Don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing’ don’t worry about a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright

Rise up this mornin’
Smiled with the risin’ sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying’, (this is my message to you)

Singing’ don’t worry ’bout a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing’ don’t worry (don’t worry) ’bout a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright

Rise up this mornin’
Smiled with the risin’ sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Sayin’, this is my message to you

Singin’ don’t worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh
Every little thing gonna be alright, don’t worry
Singin’…

Report From Bosnia  

 15 – 23 October, 2016

Having met the Healing Hands Network at a conference one weekend, I asked if many of their clients had scars.  “Nearly all of them” came the reply.  So, I offered to get a team of ScarWork therapists together to go to Sarajevo and help; my colleagues were Kat Chu, Emma Holly and Megan Bennett.  We raised the money through online donation, and took a week out of our clinics.  Filmmaker Georgie Scurfield accompanied us.  This is my diary, written while we were there.
