Autumn: A Time for Letting Go – Rosaliene Bacchus

Three Worlds One Vision

Carpet of Fallen Autumn Leaves

Autumn has arrived in the northern hemisphere. Deciduous trees transform from hues of green leaves to blazes of yellow, orange, red, and brown. Fallen leaves carpet the earth with gold.

While the vibrant colors brighten my day, the shorter daylight hours and longer nights dampen my spirits. The fallen leaves remind me of all that I have had to let go of along my journey through life. Each leaf: a person who, for good or for bad, has touched my life. Very few friendships have survived the distance and time.

I have learned to let go of the pain of losing the people I love. I have learned to let go of places that held special memories and happy moments spent with family and friends. But I am a long way from shedding the dead leaves that drain my energies and rob me…

“When young build assets…Then build cash flow,” – by Rupert De Castro

“When young build assets…Then build cash flow,” by   A. Rupert De Castro, CMA

In most western democracies, inflation is a given.  It is how the politicians make us believe we are better off so we can continue to vote for their promises.

A cup of coffee today is say $1.20… that is 24 times the price in 1965.  24 times my salary of $58 as a clerk is 24 x $58 = $1392 per week x 52 = $72,384 per annum… do you know of any clerk making $72,384 per annum? That’s inflation.               Continue reading
