How Your Negativity Bias Can Hurt You Part 2 of 2 In my previous post I asked the following question: So, after all that, are we predestined to be unhappy?

Friday Flash – The Sutra of Lord Buddha and the Dragon – Part 5 – Awakening – Friday Flash Fiction

Wearily, Shakyamuni climbed onto the dragon’s neck, securing himself soundly within the vast array of multi-coloured scales. Immediately, iKarius took to the air. Shakyamuni felt the wind rushing along his body and the exhilaration of flying. The dragon rose some five hundred feet in the air as Shakyamuni looked down upon the forests and towns. […]

Another perfect excuse for recycling a cartoon!

Want people to be nicer to you? STOP wearing deodorant: Bad body odour makes others more generous and supportive Is this why cleanly Virgo gets such a hard time??

New Year’s Resolutions for Aquarius

Is an Aquarian likely to bother with anything as traditional as making New Year’s Resolutions? Quite likely but they might not make them at New Year.

New Year’s Resolutions for Capricorn

Nailing those New Year’s Resolutions is unlikely to be a problem for the ambitious and determined Sea Goat.
