Do you have Ambition?

Have you heard of a card game called Ambition? It is now waiting for you as a really great app on the Play store! i should perhaps start with a disclaimer - i messaged Robert Acton, a friend of mine, who designed this game, to tell him i wanted to write a blog post. This is not for any benefit or gift or payment, i just thoroughly LOVE the game and want to see [...]

Season I recap: Out of the Fishbowl Codcast

With one Season of Out of the Fishbowl wrapped, i guess that kind of makes me a Podcaster. Which i have wanted to be and do for the longest time. And unless it had absolutely blown up and had a million listeners in the first week, i don't think it could have gone much better. Although finding one more person to listen to Episode I: Pineapple on Pizza, so that i can hit 300 [...]

How to discover a diverse group of friends: a Twitterer thread!

Would you say you have a group of diverse friends?  Two days ago, i shared a thread on the Twitterer that kinda exploded a little bit [in a good way!] With over 400 retweets and a whole lot of [mostly] positive engagement, it really felt like people were resonating with what was being said. So i decided to move it to a blog post as means of getting it in front of more eyes and [...]

Take a moment to smell the Lavender

i was privileged enough to get to visit Lavender Hill High School three times last week. Now i imagine that sentence will make some people curious. Heading into Lavender Hill is not something that most people might connect to the idea of privilege. But i will wager that those people have never pulled up at the gates and been welcomed to: The Best School in the Western Cape. Is it the best school in [...]

The Podcast has landed… and it was good!

On Monday, Out of the Fishbowl Season I, Episode I hit the airwaves - my very first Podcast episode.  After more than a year of planning - very unlike me, which you can read about here - and a few weeks of marketing and trying to build up some anticipation, i was more than satisfied that we hit the 100 download mark before i went to bed that night. But even more than that, [...]

Not my first Pandemic – a guest post by Ashley Brownlee

A story and message for everyone, but especially those who are hesitant about getting their vaccine. Ashley Brownless is a very good friend of mine who i have known for more than 20 years now. He has written a pretty viral post for my blog before sharing some of his journey as a South African living with HIV AIDS, and he is back to share some more, but particularly how it relates to his [...]

Both in terms of listening to them and in terms of recording my own. i started to try and get into listening to them when the Pandemic Lockdown hit properly last year and i had a lot more time on my [...]
