I Live Among Superheroes

I live among superheroes!

Superhero, defined by the Cambridge dictionary  as “a person who is admired for having done something very brave or having achieved something great.” 

Think back to your day, your week, your month or year. Think of someone who did something brave. Think of someone who did something great.

Brave and great things are done daily by people the world over.

It could be you. Well how about that?

Perhaps you are like Superman, with a strong moral compass, helping people who need help. Making a difference in people’s lives.

Or perhaps you are like Batman, able to convey hope and a vision for a better future to those around you? Batman gave Gotham City hope and vision for a better future.

Are you like Ironman? Well…Tony Stark cannot hide who he really is. During the press conference in the first  Ironman movie he tells the world that he is Ironman. He values transparency, and an honest and open approach.

Maybe you are like Spiderman? Trying to figure how to navigate the obstacles and opportunities life presents him with and which he courageously turns to his advantage?

People need superheroes. The modern mythology of comic book superheroes tell us stories about humanity, they “reflect and examine mankind’s struggles, its hopes its fears and its dreams.” (Hubpages)

I live among superheroes. Don’t you?

Happy Spring Month…

…if you’re in the southern hemisphere that is. The long awaited spring season has arrived with not much fanfare and loads of fabfare 🙂 . It’s about time. The winter was cold for us people here who are used to hot weather 9 months of the year.

This is also the first post since the middle of last month. I’m not going to count the days this time, they’re too many to mention.

Even though I wasn’t writing, I was taking photos. So to celebrate my return to this space, here’s a selection of photos taken during this period.

I had loads of these…

Set a pretty important intention for the now-future…watch this space…

 

 

 

Stayed over at the Southern Sun in Hyde Park to be close to the venue for facilitating a team set-up and experiment setting workshop…

And this week flew to Cape Town for a few days for our spring coach camp, ate at a fancy restaurant and drank champagne…

And so here I am…

Cheers for now.
