The world didn’t end & a new year begins

We're still here... Well, 21/12/12 has come and gone without any earth-shattering, end-of-world events ...or any "ascension" for that matter either least nothing that I've noticed.

Angelic Synchronicity

Facebook is often a source of contention and unrest due to the "status updates" people post and the subsequent string of comments by others keen to express their views about those updates. This past week has seen a barrage of emotionally charged sentiments expressed on some people's FB pages which have also resulted in people … Continue reading Angelic Synchronicity
