Moving In New Directions
I’m always moving and on the go, as I’m moving, I go with the flow.
In the middle of what I do my mind is always thinking, all the time on what to do.
New things to do, people to meet, make new friends and greet old ones and talk of pastures new.
Directions I take in what I choose to do with my life and directions on doing things new.
That’s my mind what’s yours?
Groups take place on a weekly basis at The Life House and the Hetton Centre.
