Christmas 2018 approaches, a time for good cheer and to be thankful to your host, by resolving to both praise and enjoy life. Day to day we all aspire to enjoy good health and a secure shelter, so it is also time to give thanks for what we have and to offer a helping hand to those in need.
Our team wish to convey their very best wishes to friends, followers and supporters, whose loyalty and encouragement throughout this year has meant a great deal to us all, especially from this editor, as I battle cancer. Thank you.
The Culture Concept Circle in many of its posts uses the reflective power of art, design, music and style to assist in opening up inquiry into a deeper understanding and appreciation of the evolution of world cultures.
Holding the past and present in balance is always an ongoing struggle, as we endeavour to innovate and imagine the future of our world in the face of overwhelming odds, both natural and man-made.
