Three Butterflies

I've always felt that I receive communications from my grandmother via things with wings. This week I had three unusual interactions with butterflies. On Thursday I was working at my desk and a butterfly flew into the lounge and hovered by my desk then turned and flew back out. When I was telling Norman this …

Judged

On Tuesday the second impeachment hearings began and Mr. Trump's attorneys and the House impeachment managers were each given two hours to present their cases to senators for debate over the constitutionality of the impeachment hearings. The 8 impeachment managers were appointed by House Speaker Nancy …

Hats and High Teas

It has been so cold in Cape Town for most of this week. We had horrid weather on Monday, stormy, dark and wet with howling wind. Lola decided she was cold and needed to snuggle up under my neck despite me trying to work. https://www.instagram.com/p/CD_MeDlpG8T/ Last Sunday we held a family Zoom meeting with my …

A Decent Man

We had beautiful weather last weekend and it continued throughout the week. South African winters are the best, we usually have sunny bright days and cool evenings. The mornings are often misty or cloudy but it usually burns off leaving us with bright blue skies. Regardless of the weather, it is always beautiful. https://www.instagram.com/p/CDNy3FVp89j/ Lola …

Living on the Knife’s Edge

It was lovely having a three day weekend both last weekend and this weekend, especially as that resulted in a three day work week and everyone loves that! Assuming that you are getting paid of course. I am very grateful for paid holidays, especially in such a stressful time as the Covid Era with so …

There’s A Light *for external use only*

It is lockdown day number 'I have no idea' and we have 'who knows' how many days of lockdown ahead. I have completely lost track. Does it really matter? The only thing I can quote are the daily stats of those affected, those who have recovered and those who have passed away. As with all …

The Matrix of Oneness

Another week of lockdown is in the bag. It has been 19 days in total since I left my home. My very wise friend Michelle was saying that we need to flip the terminology around the lockdown, rather to call it 'Time Out' or even better 'Time In'. We should treat it as a time …
