There are two things we could all try to minimise
any harm to ourselves or others –
Meaning harsh thoughts or words, harmful deeds,
game playing or flirting with another’s partner!

And our carbon footprint –
Meaning more use of bicycles and public transport,
avoid excessive packaging, nominal use of utilities,
not wasting or stockpiling … you get the drift?

Balance everything else
like meals, sleep, clothing and travel.
If you are blessed with more then wisest to share
for those in real need asking is very rare.

Daily Prompt:  Minimal – 22.3.17

So as expected I have hit a bump with local council who has no policy
and ignored my initial enquiry some months ago. 

Know you all mean well but I am putting a complete black out over this please? 
No questions on line or by email …
I will tell you once I’ve moved but no updates or questions please ..


  1. Kindness and respect to ourselves, others and our environment – doesn’t seem like a difficult directive but you’d be surprised how hard it is for people. There was an uproar about giving up plastic straws for goodness sake! Keep spreading the word though! Great post!

  2. When private spaces are public …
    I think we can respect the private spaces amid all the public.

    I am always saving containers for at least one reuse for my DIL’s school. I save assorted bottle caps for counting, sorting by size and color. I’ve also got a box going for things to donate. And when it is full – then I deliver it. 🙂

    Cheers and good balance to you, Jules

  3. Absolutely agree. One of my ex girlfriends couldn’t stop herself from flirting and coming on to a few of my friends. One of my friends discreetly told me she was making him uncomfortable. We didn’t last long after that.

    • yes John that’s a tough one … fine if it was true but I have known mates to break up a relationship just because they could … trust your mates are more honest than that!

  4. Wise words, Kate!
    I strive for balance (doesn’t always work, but I am trying)…In life-stuff, I like being on the center of the seesaw and not high up or low down. 🙂
    Love that kissy photo! Sweet!
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  5. Namaste Calm Kate 🙂

    Minimise is such a meaningful word: making small changes in the way we live our life cam be positively impacting for us, for others, and for our planet. As Oscar Wilde is reputed as saying. ‘everything in moderation, including moderation.’

    Thoughtful, considered words as always. Thank you for sharing.

    Namaste 🙂
