Over this festive holiday period in Australia it is summer time, a time to go to the beach, a time to celebrate life with a little wine and sweet words, to be thankful to your host, to resolve to give joy to others and, to praise and enjoy life.

At The Culture Concept Circle we will all be taking some time out from Christmas Eve to Epiphany (January 6) to spend time with family and friends for rest, recreation and refreshment.

This is the key to good health and well being in the year ahead.

Our team, Carolyn, Jo, Helen, Janet, Ross and Paul send our very best wishes to all our readers.

We have all appreciated your support and interaction and look forward to renewing our acquaintance in 2014.

As we reach another New Year we all have yet another chance for us to get it right and to make things happen.

Words are how the world works so as we welcome the arrival of 2014 let’s offer some sweet words to those we perhaps forgot to say thank you to, those we forgot to offer kindness to, and to those we love and cherish.
