What people thought – the last year.

In the last year I’ve had two most-trusted people reveal contact details for me to third parties without my prior consent. How did this happen: Person A: “thought” that I wouldn’t mind as person X was so trusted by them, a professional and a trustworthy person. Person B: “thought” thatRead More

FOMO, ROMO & JOMO

I’ve been thinking about FOMO for quite some time, in the background of course. Now it’s coming into the foreground. Then there is JOMO, which most people think they know about but know nothing. ROMO people will know about but haven’t attached the mnemonic. People – in general of courseRead More

No time to save time

Another knock on the door

Knock on the door

Well, I’m making breakfast this morning – around 10:00 AM – and I hear the doorbell ring. No – I didn’t think that the ‘authorities’ had come for me, finally. So I step into my storm porch and see a man and a child. He’s smartly dressed in suit andRead More
