The Queen working in final days of life

The right, or choice to work until our own death, should be protected now, if the individual wishes.

The possibilities to complete your life work in your last days has shown us that people can achieve great things before they die.

The Queen met Liz Truss to confirm her as Prime Minister. Her last significant duty.

At the City Hall, when I was there this year I saw posters called ‘Dying to Work’, I want initiatives to support people who want to work. To be supported to work if you are facing a terminal illness.

With the greatest sadness we mourn, with countless others around the world, the passing of our beloved Queen Elizabeth II. Adored and enormously respected by so many as one of society’s truly great role models for her unrelenting hard work. Her commitment and service to her subjects and humanity at large. We are grateful for Her Majesty’s government over many years around the world, and through the personal service of so many of our veterans. May you rest in peace our dear Queen.

Communication difficulties and winning companies during hard times

Two people I know, who face real, genuine difficulties, are also very difficult to communicate with. These people talk, and keep talking, without taking a break or pause to allow the other person to reply.

Being bombarded with endless verbal communication…

It’s really a challenge, and makes the listener want to get away asap.

Anyone else, know someone who has this unusual communication style?

Too much information, makes communication difficult to understand, like this pixelated map.

Cars seem so much part of society, like people feel they have no other option but to use their car.

And companies or charities, making huge windfalls in cash like oil companies, maybe they get you annoyed. Or charities which are just the right size with exactly the best policies, that keep getting too much of the money for their causes.

In my neighbourhood, the garages seem to be the best performing businesses in the area. Adding more vehicles to the area, and the later and later the revving of motors goes on into the night.

Making working adults more sleep deprived.

Charities with too much money and too many policies. I just don’t like them.

It’s really tough for grassroots businesses or start ups, and small companies to grow.

Makes me really sad, seeing how dependent we are on cars, and how these businesses are growing next to my neighbourhood where small children live and single parent households too.

I am having quite a difficult time, my job isn’t the easiest and lots of things aren’t just happening for me, and I have to deal with lots of sensory stresses everyday at home and at night.

Is anyone else feeling annoyed when businesses or charities seem to be doing so well, when other people are experiencing such hard times?

Support for Ukraine – Art on Sale

Born in Ukraine and have been working as a professional artist for the last 10 years, ever since I graduated from UWE, Bristol UK. Painting has always been my passion, but I have also experimented with video installation, winning the Michael Barnard Award for one of my pieces.

If you have been moved by the Ukraine situation and would like to be signposted to an artist, who I know, she is selling her art with proceeds to her family in the Ukraine directly affected by War. She is based in Bristol and any questions about shipping or her work please contact her or leave a message for Sophie at sophiecoopers@yahoo.co.uk

If you have an events space which would like to buy or hire the pictures, please make contact. Many Thanks. Preferably UK based, however we are open to suggestions for getting the word out there about this great opportunity to support an artist with family in Ukraine.
