The mind itself is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell or a hell of heaven.
A thought provoking image Sir. Sadly for the majority it will remain just that, a thought.
The world can only be grasped by action, not by contemplation..the hand is the cutting edge of the mind.

Thank you each and every one. Sorry if this was such a negative shot its just how I feel at the moment. If someone was to come up with the "Good News Channel" sure they would bring in the viewers by the millions.
Roy, like you stopped buying news papers years ago for this reason, bad news or trite.
Just feel this country at the moment is going down the tube fast, human rights act, don't get me started, fight back and you'll find yourself been sued by the attacker. Can't do this, can't park here, don't walk there, can't say that, Mr orwell has a lot to answer for and it ain't getting any better, no wonder the recent report that so many people were leaving this country came as no surprise, god even the illegal workers are going back home.
I'll shut my face now, thanks

Sad fact of life Victor that bad news sells newspapers, even news on tv spends a large majority of its time on the bad aspects with one piece of good/happy/humourous news given at the end almost as an anecdote.
Fantastic image, great concept, minimalist simple design expertly carried out. Congrats on the HC.
