Those illusive nutshells

One of the most difficult things for me to find after they have fallen out of my hands or they have spilled out of a bowl or plate are nut shells.

Just try finding these little things after they have done so and you're in for a game of patience. Yes, pack your patience as you go looking for them. Due to their makeup, they are light and somewhat slippery because of their lightness; they can easily be dislodged if you move too quickly and then they go flying and skidding elsewhere.

So how do I catch them? For me, I have to go gently and slowly. I have to start by having an idea as to where they have fallen and this is not always easy to determine, especially so when they have fallen on carpeted floors. If they have fallen on my counter then I need to ensure that I do not knock them onto the floor, bare or carpeted.

I also have to ensure that I do not send them skidding elsewhere for who knows where they will end up and it is not easy to find them then. So, at the end of the day, I need to be careful whenever I deal with fallen nut shells.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
