At Home with Pets – Mammary Cancer

anna georghallides petsWell this week has been pretty busy. To start with my computer’s hard drive decided to call it a day so I am typing this on a very slow machine with limited internet access so won’t have the blog I was planning on writing. I hope to have my computer back by next week so I can get back to normal.

Last Friday I noticed a couple of lumps on my lovely 9½ year old English Pointer Lizzy so today she is facing surgery to have them removed. Poor girl was found this time last year, starving and severely injured having been thrown (we assume) from a moving car with four massive tumours. She had obviously been used for breeding. Her bottom lip was completely detached and she had deep gashes all over her poor body. Had she not been found she wouldn’t have survived another day.

Thought for Today - To Change Your Circumstances, Change Your Mind

When you want to change your circumstances you have to change your mind. It’s not about what happens out there but how you are able to see it different. You don’t need others to improve your life as long as you are aware that it’s up to you to deal with what is going on in your life.

If you would like to experience traditional Cypriot food and tastes of the Marathasa area, do not hesitate to visit Pedoulas otherwise known as ‘in the valley of the cherries’. It’s an ideal place to relax and it is surrounded by many other interesting small villages that offer traditional food and tastes.
Here are 10 things I love doing in Pedoulas:
1. When I visit Pedoulas in the summer, I like to stop at the Xrystarounda picnic site on the Pedoulas - Kykkos road, it is the place to escape the summer heat and enjoy nature!

Thought for Today - Travel Light, Put Down Your Luggage

How many suitcases with worry and fear are you filling this morning to take with you on your journey today. How many pieces of luggage are you still taking on your shoulders every day thinking you can’t leave them behind? Today travel light… remember that it’s just a choice what to take with you, which ideas you keep on making true or what kind of conditionings you think you have to store in the suitcases of your mind.

Thought for Today - Freedom Cannot Exist in Chaos

Freedom is a state of mind and it needs order and discipline to manifest it in your life. This may be a contradiction for you but freedom cannot exist in chaos. When your mind is occupied with anger, frustration and fear when you not follow up with what you have promised yourself to do, there is no space for creativity, love and harmony.

Soulart making our souls float on a Sunday morning


soulartThis Sunday morning of Healing with Art - an Introduction to Soulart with Catt Kyriakou turned out to be a personal favourite of mine! And it seems safe to say everyone else’s. We’ve already had some lovely and very ‘soulful’ events with Catt who’s been coming all the way from Ayia Napa to see us. Especially the evening during which she explained how she does her Soulart to help others ‘heal’ had me fascinated. I find any kind of art has something healing about it - to me it is photography which makes me feel like I’ve gone off ‘to elsewhere’ to take a break... and from now on also painting with pastels!
