Sounds of Silence

No matter what is going on in our lives we can usually still find something to be grateful for and opening up our consciousness to that gratitude often makes us aware of other blessings we should be grateful for.

The Power of Knowledge

It is now over 3 months since I started self isolating. There have been 1,293,608 people tested in SA.

Fire and Rock

In a recent blog I mentioned the two old farts who sit near me at my current client who were reminiscing over 'the good old days' and now I am starting to be aware of all of their ridiculous conversations. It doesn't help that Old Fart #1 has a voice identical to Kermit the Frog. …
