…a trip to our own island in the sun

As Autumn draws in

As darkness lingers

We are grateful

For the Sunshine

Sent to us from Above.

We all face Dark days

We all feel the Gloom

But we can all take a trip

To our personal island

And bask in the Sun.

Whilst listening to waves

Singing Her hypnotic song

We can take ourselves

To the shore and feel the wet sand

Ooze between our toes.

Take a trip to our Personal Heaven,

Let go of all thoughts and situations

Every bit of negativity

That no longer serve Us.

No matter how we feel

Happy or a bit less

We can take a trip

To our Personal Heaven…

And stay there for as long

As we want…

Mark Twain once said, “Mauritius was made first, and then heaven, and heaven was copied after Mauritius.”

Bankrupt. Does the word mean “When banks corrupt us?”

Banks tempt us into living beyond our means with cheap loans and potentially with negative interest rates in an attempt to spend our ways out of recession.

What happens in an economic downturn is that people default or are unable to pay their loans … go bankrupt.

Can we look up to some Financial Messiah to save us or can we save ourselves from worse turmoils?

Can financial institutions act in a more holistic manner, not Robin Hood-style but more to financially empower?

Perhaps financially naive and totally utopian, but changes around us stimulates thoughts of rippling changes

From Politics

To Economics
