When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world
I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.
When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.
Now, as an old man, I realise the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realise that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family.
My family and I could have made an impact on our town.
Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.

Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve. Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.
Hopefully this will all be changing in September when we head to the States for 2 weeks! 5 days in New York and the rest in South Carolina visiting family.
Well today was the day i finally decided to sign up to Tumblr!
Another site to add to the ever growing list of social media subscriptions I have along with the likes of Twitter (which I never use but feel the need to have anyway); Facebook (where I keep myself up-to-date with the dramatic lives of past friends I would have otherwise left behind many years ago); Bebo (A Peasant Man’s Facebook from my University days) and finally Adroblip (a photography journal website which I update once in a blue moon).
It seems like it’ll be a good place to share photos with distant friends and family. I’ve also had a good scroll through the pages of Tumblr and like the range of what’s available, so who knows we may get along fine!? We’ll just have to wait and see!
