"Thank You for your Newsletter. The story about The Fog reminded
me of my trip to Scotland 4 years ago. I still remember the beauty
of climbing the hills and the friendly Scots. I can close my eyes
and its almost like I am there again Thank you for reminding me."

very much for allowing me an insight into your brain - I really
enjoyed the stories. I especially liked the part about how you can
never say the wrong thing to the right person, because I often speak
without my brain being engaged."
Robert - This is good. I liked the story of the Athlete,Warrior
and Statesman. Out of interest why do you have Magpies on your headed
You for your newsletter - very inspirational.
Robert..Story number 6 about Old Father Time was good. It makes
you wonder how much time people waste in the predictable 9 to 5
newsletters are wonderful and Inspiring. I would like your
permission to forward to my Team. Cheers.
Joanie, Colorado, USA.
Robert. Thanks for the Newsletters. Number 6 is very topical for
me at the moment. I am currently reading A Brief History of Time
by Stephen Hawking. - your man Einstein and his relatives get a
good mention. That's if you have the time, but hey it's all relative
after all. Looking forward to your book.
Robert. I always enjoy reading the Newsletter. I also remember the
kind words you shared with me.
you for sending me your wee book. What a great tonic. I've been
gradually reading through and laughing my head off at times.
enjoyed number 16 - nice story.
Thanks for story number 8 - I have just had a little cry ,but it
has buoyed me up for the weekend after a long hard week.
don't often have a spare afternoon these days, but today I do and
sued it to take it easy and read your Newsletters. I feel glad I
did (Number 9).
Thanks Ian, London
great to receive the Newsletter. I particularly enjoyed Number 11
about The Fog.
you for your inspiration. Wishing you and your family joy and peace
you for your Newsletter and the delightful story of the Shopkeeper.(Number
12). I sent it off to friends of mine who know my views on the shopping
experience on crutches or in a wheelchair. Your Newsletter is a
for your Newsletter. Have you read the book "Fish"? It's
a book that illustrates just what you have been talking about in
your Newsletter and shows how we can all develop this attitude to
work. Of course I'm preaching to the initiated!
New Year Robert. I was stunned that you have never heard of the
Emperor's New Clothes. ! Your newsletter has once again got me thinking
so it is serving its purpose.
Uncle. My Dad just emailed me your newsletter and it is really cool..
I knew you had been lots of places in the world, but I didn't know
Thailand was one of them. The story of Mr.Koo ( number 12) was neat.
How did you get to all those amazing countries, I mean what was
the purpose. My lifeplan is to see the Seven Wonders of the World
and Paul wants to take me to the Taj Mahal. Havea wonderful Christmas.
for this Robert (Number 18). When you read stories like this you
realise we take so many things for granted. I was singing with my
Dad on Sunday night and you know, you never can tell when a "special
moment" ( something that touches you deep inside) comes along.
As I watched him, I could actually feel the pleasure he was getting
from performing and he sang to me, I'll never forget the joy on
his face, its things like this that make life priceless.
is giving me huge challenges just now and I am not sure why I have
invited them in. Funny I was thinking of you yesterday reading the
newsletter(Number14) because when we met last year I felt there
was something, some wisdom you had to give me but I didn't know
what it was
so I think our paths have to cross at some point.
Anyway, thank you. Jane,London

Robert. I managed to open your newsletter Number 21. Brilliant,
and so say all of us about Mothers.
number 20 brought a ray of sunshine into a cloudy day. Thank You.
Not one usually to feel tearful, I felt a big globule of salty water
roll down my cheek as I read about your friend making time each
day to tell his daughter how lucky he is to be her Dad. I hope he
never underestimates how much a powerful influence that will be
in her life. The story was magical - a lovely one to share.
Pam, Carlisle, England.

Is this to make us think or is there a problem? Can you please add
my friends in Malta to your mailing list.

them later. I have just read Number 16 and just to let you know
my screensaver has the words " we make a living by what we

New Year. You are doing a wonderful job with the Newsletter. I have
attached a few special words I found the other day. I hope you like
them as much as I do. Orra best for 2002.
raced around Sainsbury's at 8am this morning, it was good to come
into the office and find your Newsletter(Number 13) waiting for
me. It made me pause long enough to realise how much I am grateful
for, memories of places like the Barras, and the time I give my
son - just the juice that makes life flow.
story (Number 2). I loved it and believe that is what life is all
about.Who cars what type of fool you make of yourself as long as
you advance - I don't. You only know your limits by going past them
- but then, by going past them you suddenly have stretched them
and moved the goalposts forward, and that's what life is about.
for the lovely little red book. You've inspired me to get my website
for all your stories they are truly inspirational.
You for my first Newsletter. I enjoyed it and hope to receive more.
Richard Wallace, Marysvile, California

You so much for Evolver number 39 and your inspiration and positive
attitude. Wishing you a glorious day. I think there is room for
a new business in Scotland the manufacture of outrageously bright
and cheerful raincoats!

Jay, Oklahoma, USA
is a wee note to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful
newsletters. Number 41 ( The Sunshine Letter) found me pretty low
and feeling like the one small candle in the darkness you wrote
about. But this small candle will no longer be extinguished. Thank
Hazel, Hampshire, England

a lot and because I am generally like that, it is nice to see someone
like yourself passing around good cheer.

Australia since 1964.

Life feels like a HUGE transition right now. I am confused and not

it possible to have your newsletter sent to my work email? It would
be nice to read it especially after a challenging Customer Call.
As the old saying goes, what you concentrate on expands. So I like
to read something positive right after a situation that is trying
to pull me down. When I concentrate to read something Positive,
there is no space in my mind anymore for the negativity to expand.
You across the internet for the booklet of stories you sent me.
live in Korea and would like to read your stories. Thank You
