How do you judge your life?

Here's an interesting question that occured to me the other day. Do you judge your life by the number of those you can hurt or the number of those you can help?
And who is the better person one who measures by the former or the one that measures by the latter?
From my point of view, the latter is always the better. After all, you may be able to hurt plenty of people but if your actions benefit only yourself then your life will be a lonely one. Alternatively if your actions, hurtful or otherwise, benefit more than just yourself then you will almost assuredly have a rich life of social interaction.
I think what I'm trying to say is that surely, where possible, it is better to help rather than to hurt (of course there are situations whereby you may have to hurt one to help many). This principle is one that we should encourage in our future generations, as it may be the only thing that saves the human race from a fight to the death that results in our extinction.

A Recital Of An Unitdy Mind - Part 2

Just a quick one to say how fantastic Helen was at this mornings recital!

I know that I'm a little biased, what with Helen being a lifelong friend of my other half, but she does have a fantastic mezzo-soprano voice and really deserves to have it heard by as many people as possible.
She sang some beautiful peices this morning and exceled herself once more.

If you ever see an operatic society peformance featuring the name Helen Anne Gregory then check it out. :0)

A Recital of an Untidy Mind

So it's been a while since my last post (I seem to type that alot - lol) and I thought I'd drop a post in , but I'm not sure what to blog about.
Then I remembered that this Saturday (tomorrow for all those who struggle with what day of the week it is) Helen from Diary Of An Untidy Mind is performing a recital at St John the Evangelist, Hall Cliffe, Baildon, BD17 6ND. It start's at 10:30am and finishes around 11:30am.

Helen has an amazing voice and if you can get there to hear her then you won't be disappointed.
