The new school year 2013-14 begins!

Dear English students, and visitors in general:

The autumn is coming, the leaves are falling, the nights come earlier, the cold substitutes the sun...God bless October!
Like everything in life, seasons are cycles that have a beginning and an end, that come and go...and that remind us that nothing lasts forever. Let's enjoy, then, the present moment, as Ekhart Tolle suggests in his wise book  The Power of Now, and let us forget about tomorrow...This doesn't mean that we have to live as if there was no future...it means that we have to live our lifes the way we want, chasing our dreams, making projects, looking towards our future, yes, ...but above all, enjoying the way we are walking directing ourselves towards our goals. It may seem utopic, but it is not: it is not the goal in itself that matters, it is the way towards that goal.
So now, this new school year, let's set up some goals to reach: give up smoking, pass all my exams, find a better job, get married, get divorced, learn Chinese, learn how to make bread, have children, find inner peace, lose weight
...whatever it is, let us fight for them with determined faith in ourselves and let's enjoy the way!
 And, changing topic: check this original bed out!:
