Today I spent some time with a young business woman that I have been mentoring for about 12 months. It’s relatively informal, she had started a new business about 18 months ago. When she reached out, I was happy to help in whatever way I could. Our discussions are not structured in terms of an […]

One of my tasks in isolation has been to sort out the many photographs that over the years have ended up in the “photographs box.” It was always with the intention they would be sorted, culled and photographs of treasured moments stored in photograph albums.

30+1 days of posting

The urge to write will not be ignored. Combined with the positive feedback from a variety of people, I’m compelled to re-commence my daily posts. They harness my thinking during isolation.

Day 25 of 30

One of the changes that has come out of being in isolation is the ability to have quality time with friends and family. It’s not face to face, but it is on the phone or via Zoom/Face Time/Skype. Interestingly these conversations are much more intimate than ever before. During the past week in particular I […]

Day 24 of 30

Tonight I am reliving my childhood years. Getting dressed up, wearing my black patent leather lace up boots and my best dress. Saturday nights at the Greek cinema in Oakleigh. A black and white newsreel, followed by a double feature. They were special Saturday nights. Greek cinema of the sixties was formulaic, but uplifting. Invariably […]
