A Happy New Year to you and yours!
By the time you read these words, I will be cruising somewhere on the Caribbean Sea, teaching belly dance on the Allure of the Seas. But I will still keep an eye on my emails to check who finds the answers to the rebus puzzles of this issue. So keep your mind busy, use your eyes - which won't get any bigger - and stay young like Brahm!

Way of the Mind's Article - How to Stay Young: An Inner Process
If you want to know how to stay young, the story of my friend Brahm Memone may inspire you. I have known Brahm for years, and he hasn’t changed a bit! He looks barely 40 even though he is now 57. He is still the slim, smiling and spiffy gentleman I met at Toastmasters 10 years ago.
Wanting to discover how to stay young like him, I met Brahm for coffee in order to pick his brain, and this article is the result of our enlightening conversation.
Brahm's Life Story
Despite being a qualified Chartered Accountant both in England and in Canada, Brahm's professional success hit a wall in 1993. He was then 39. He wanted a life with purpose and meaning, and instead he felt like he was in jail. Unable to keep a job, he left everything he had – job, wife, children, house - and ended up living and sleeping in his car, which is not very comfortable when you are more than six feet tall!
In search of "something," whatever this something was, he moved several times to places such as Nova Scotia and North Carolina. For several years, he had the "anti-Midas touch," everything he became involved with turning into... a big mess! Things were not working well.
This is when he decided to stop looking outside for this special something. He attended many seminars and read extensively on transformation and motivation. He learned to meditate, hence starting his inner journey to self-realization. And he finally discovered that meaning comes from the inside.

Eyes, Nose and Ears
Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing. If only we could hear and smell better as we get older!
