Our capacity to love depends on our capacity to be individuals in our own right.
To love, essentially means to give, and giving effectively requires maturity of oneself.
Love does not mean neglecting one's own needs but rather giving when one has something of value to share, and the strength within to do so.
Often we try to purify love from aggression and competitive triumph by identifying it with weakness.
Common prejudice is that the more someone loves, the weaker they are; the strong person does not need to love.
What is often forgotten is that tenderness goes hand-in-hand with strength: one must be gentle yet know when to be firm; otherwise the vulnerability that entails gentleness can be mistaken for neediness.
To be a person of virtue one must have strength yet be able to love and care!

Created in 1994 as a spoof of that more serious competition, the Bald Archy Prize provides artists of all styles and standards with a genuine opportunity, ranging from the hilarious to the bizarrely vulgar, to create portrait paintings of humour, dark satire, light comedy or caricature.
Now known internationally as the only art competition in the world to be judged by a sulphur-crested cockatoo named Maude, the satirical side of this event has its basis in the irreverent, larrikin Australian comic comment, with great appeal to people from all walks of life, the reason why the exhibition of finalists keeps breaking attendance records wherever it is shown.
On now until 11 March at the Watson Arts Centre,
1 Aspinall Street, Watson
Daily: 10am – 4.00pm.

🚨🚨 CANBERRA FRIENDS 🚨🚨would anyone know of a business who could take Bella to our wedding & take her back home? We really, really want her at our ceremony but logistics are proving to be difficult as we require someone to bring her to the ceremony and then take her home after photos are done 😭. Our home is too far from our venue for us to sort it ourselves. If you know of anyone, please let me know! I’m a desperate furmum who wants her girl with her on her special day 💗
