Word of the week: courage

A couple of weeks ago I visited the De La Warr Pavillion at Bexhill.   There was an exhibition on called ‘Hang on a minute lads, I’ve got a great idea...’ based on the iconic final scene of the film The Italian Job where the coach hangs precariously over a cliff edge.

The exhibition re-constructs the scene, but with a coach precariously balanced on the rooftop of the De La Warr Pavilion itself…..scary!!

It must have taken the artist, Richard Wilson, great courage to persuade the ‘powers that be’ to re-create this ‘precarious’ scene on the rooftops of a well-known UK seaside venue.

And it reminds me that courage helps us to do amazing things for ourselves as well.

As I pull myself away from the sunny ‘south’ and base myself once again in The Midlands, I am summoning up as much courage and energy as I can for putting plans into process to (once again!) start my NIA Dance classes. 


Nia Dance is a joyful way to move and helps the body to move the way it wants to move.

There are NIA Dance events happening throughout the UK in September – find out more on the NIA     Technique UK facebook page.

Making plans to start my classes in Staffordshire in September too!  More news on this coming soon.

So this is not scientific at all. But in a couple of hours there have been more than 2000 replies and overwhelmingly they say @RoryStewartUK won the #C4Debate https://t.co/BBXQeKSp5w

.@RoryStewartUK again absolutely kills the others by actually sounding as though he is fallible. Whether it is sincere or a performance it is working. @sajidjavid also sounds human by talking about getting things wrong as a dad #c4debate
