I have been thinking this for as long as I can remember now - and trying very hard. But being better, not forgetting so much, not making so many mistakes, seeing the world more clearly through other's eyes, seems as elusive as catching the brightness at the end of the rainbow. Some of you are so kind and think what I do is good and the books are lovely, and I worry so much that if ever I forget to send you something I promised, or don't reply quickly, or you receive a wrong order, that you will be more than disappointed. You will not only be disappointed with me, quite justly, but you will be disappointed with all the good aims we are trying to foster, with all the heart we have put into our products every single hour of every single day for the last 5 years. And more - that you will lose heart in believing that things can be good, and with persevering in all the good things you try to do, trying to be that bit better every day, as I try, and often, fail to be. Believe in perfection, certainly, try for perfection, look for perfection, foster perfection and when you experience less than perfection, don't let it turn your whole world grey. Compassion is the eye of the rainbow, its colours and brightness dazzle, remain with you all your life and never fade. I am just like you at heart. A little girl, who tries to walk in dreams that perhaps are too large for her feet and trip her up sometimes.
