I have this friend who decided he wanted to play the guitar… Within an incredibly short period of time he went from having barely picked up the instrument, to being something of a musical Maestro… those of us who knew him reasonably well and had the pleasure of listening to him play simply marvelled at his ability.

When I think of the word community I think of a sense of togetherness, of care and dependency on each other.

We all have days when we need to be inspired. To get a kick in the pants and get us back on track. To be lifted out of being down and look at life through new lenses.  Rattle Ya Dags is a fantastic new website to help you along the way.  Behind the website the concept that “The more you share the more inspired you feel”.  Well known Kiwis share their thoughts, personal tales, tips and advice daily. Today I’ve watched Jamie Fitzgerald – Don’t Drop Anchor. Take a few minutes ...
