I Wonder

There is some good in the world #FridayReflections

March 24, 2017

At present, there seems to be so much hate and evil in the world. There are people killing innocent people. There are individuals vilifying all individuals of a certain religion because of an evil minority. There are women being beaten, bashed and raped. Children are being abused – sexually, physically and emotionally. It’s a wonder that we are not constantly consumed by doom and gloom. Even if we ignore things on a global scale, it’s hard to watch the bad in…

Why I need to be cloned

March 22, 2017

Do you remember many many years ago scientists cloned a sheep? I think I was still in high school then. Somehow, after cloning the sheep, I can’t remember them doing much more on the cloning front.

Misunderstood #FridayReflections

March 3, 2017

When I’m quiet in a group, it’s not because I’m shy. It’s because I’m thinking, observing and listening before I speak. When I’m spending time on my own, it’s not because I’m lonely. It’s because I’m an introvert and that’s how I recharge. When I’m speaking my mind in a fiery manner, it’s not because I’m rude and obnoxious. It’s because I’m passionate and need to have my say. When I’m particular about how things need to be done, it’s not…
