‘It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see’ – Henry David Thoreau

A quote to live by. Quoted in a book that should live by your bedside. Midnight Library by Matt Haig. It makes you think, doesn’t it? So often in life we see things differently to how other people see them. Things, words, situations can all be interpreted in various ways and it is important to… Continue reading ‘It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see’ – Henry David Thoreau

One of those days

Some things I’ve learnt in the pandemic…

In a crazy world where good things happen.

12. Ever tried to write two novels at one time? I think I may have just taken on the challenge. Initially I struggled to find the time to read during lock down, let alone write. Work has been so busy and my breaks were mostly spent coming to terms with what just happened. As if… Continue reading In a crazy world where good things happen.

In a crazy world where good things happen.

11. At risk of sounding big headed, I’m proud. The more I hear about and witness the challenges many people are facing with the current situation of the world, the prouder I feel. It’s kind of gone by me unnoticed how at risk myself and my colleagues are each day that we show up to… Continue reading In a crazy world where good things happen.
