When you can hear your own heart beat

Is either because you have stopped to listen and pay attention or something scary is about to happen that took you by surprise.To me it’s a bit of both. I sleep next to a doctor every night and he goes to work daily. The ‘hello and goodbyes’ aren’t the same anymore. It comes with exclamation […]

Knock! Knock! Who’s there?

It’s your interruption: there is always one… ||: Ask(receive)Seek(find)Knock(open)And then yourINTERRUPTION>>guaranteed :|| It seems to me that waiting is not really a passive action it’s more like playing in your sandbox until the red spade makes it’s appearance. What is ’work‘ when it’s ’play’ for you because it comes naturally to you because it is […]

NO means ‘Not Overnight’.

It’s not easy hearing a NO. But if you turn it around it works like a button and reads ON. It is a switch and you just need to flick it again…No means… no never, not now, not today, not this season, not this year or just ‘ask again later’… We once had aMcDonalds play-toy […]

The Seven Year Plan Is Coming Together

It’s ok to blink. But blinking without having a plan- that’s a problem…I was thinking: How can I sell you my newest offerings without making it look like my Office desk’s chaos? Well- it might look like chaos… but it’s planned chaos! It’s stuff I engineered more than seven years ago… You see I had […]

When the lights go out but the sun still shines

You must be in South Africa because it is load-shedding. The benefits of load-shedding is you get to spend time with your cat. And plan your day better: computer on, computer off #Restart #ShutDown And everything works in pockets of 2,5 hours. Just like the show for Valentines day at De Warenmark: 2,5-3 hours. With […]

We find trained quality carers you can adopt into your home to keep you in control of your care and independent longer.This is my press release. “A project […]

Fly on the wall

My dad always used to give the flies names- especially the ones who were frequent flyers(and landers) when we would visit Blenheim Farm on December Summer holiday visits to Stellenbosch. Since those days I have discovered inventive ways of keeping them away. You have to keep your finger on them if you know what I […]

There’s always a mountain. Wire?

There is always a mountain… or a long passage way with an end you don’t know if it should be your destination. Today I found out that that foreign territory is somebody else’s every day life and comfort zone. If you give it(or them) a chance there is always a good samaritan who will point […]

Hello Vancouver-Doing an autopsy on the year

What went right?What went wrong?What needs a second chance?(dream on…) I really wanted to feel depressed and sorry for myself last week: ✔️how hard I work, ✔️how much stuff was still left to do and ✔️how I failed at what was important to me.Then I started making a list starting from January and it did […]

The La-La-Nurse Is Back

December is when everything falls in place. My year planner is laid out with holidays, crazy days and work. And I know I only use a day-planner Jan-Feb-March but it makes me feel my ducks are aligning. I decided to share my one song that stood out as a duck not to be missed: ‘Twee […]
