By Mary Cook, M.A., R.A.S.

There is destruction, disease, disaster, and death in this world. It is a natural process, however modern man has greatly accelerated and escalated it.

Mary, thank you for your wonderful comment on my page - so delighted that you enjoyed my page - travelling at the moment, so I don't get enough time to write on my page though.... But in the meantime, enjoying time out in nature - and that certainly makes up for it!
Hope to hear from you again soon, and hope we will become friends in future!
Love and light
Blessings to you my new friend

Give me the strength to walk the soft earth, a relative to all that is! Give me the eyes to see and the strength to understand, that I may be like you. With your power only can I face the winds.
