On one wing against the odds

Some time back while sitting in the garden pondering on scripture and reflecting on my life and development as an individual, I noticed a butterfly sitting on a leaf just a few feet from where I was sitting (it wasn’t the pictured butterfly but their

Quality far outweighs Quantity

My line of work is predominantly male, especially in the structures where decisions are made. You rarely find women as part if those teams and committees. If there are any, there is one surrounded by men. For example, in a committee of seven people, only

Thank you and goodbye.

At the beginning of the year I did two reflections on myself and my life (The irony of a teacher and It has begun: new beginnings). In these reflections I took a look at my fears and some habits which I had come to believe
