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, [...]

On being Different and why that should be okay

Some thoughts about being different: It is okay to be different. After all, we all are.  i have spent a lot of time over the last few weeks doing a lot of self-reflection.

This is definitely a book i would recommend. No surprise really that the short stories - and there are many of them [...]
