Seven Days of Black & White Photos

The seven-day black & white photo challenge is doing the rounds on Facebook, and I took up the challenge. If you haven’t come across it yet, it is about posting a photo of your life each day for seven days. No photos of people. No commentary. Challenge someone new each day.

Day 1, a spring leaf…

Day 2, spinach growing in our garden. I planted it last summer and it survived the winter. Tender bright green leaves are growing again.

Day 3, I submitted my social entrepreneurship assignment, on time!

Day 4 I was in Cape Town. Don’t you just love how neatly the luggage trolleys stack into each other?

Day 5, book order arrived. I ordered it months ago and had given up on it when it arrived! Relieved and glad.

Day 6, shopping at the mall. It’s located on a high and is a beautiful vantage point over the valley.

Day 7, today, and the first cup of coffee I posted. Americano with cold milk. It’s so easy for me to post a cup of coffee! I held out until day 7.

Share Your World – October 30, 2017

Hello and I’m back this week. I went out of town last week, chasing my dreams. I came away having completed one more step towards that, greater clarity of purpose, and a bunch of new learnings.

For now, it’s time for Cee’s SYW…today’s edition.

Where do you eat breakfast?

The day is not started for Che and me without having coffee and toast in bed. We take turns doing this, and the person making the coffee and toast wakes the other one up.

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want have an evening with?

The Lonely Island comedy troupe. They’re hilarious, versatile, brilliant writers and producers of good social commentary using the medium of comedy.

If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be?

I’d love to be an Ent! From the Lord of the Rings! They’re patient, serene, powerful, tall, as old as the trees. Oh wait, they are trees…

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

Share Your World – October 23, 2017

Good evening friends!

Lately, I’ve barely managed to get one post out a week, sometimes two. Social Entrepreneurship studies are wrapping up and there’s still a fair amount to do, especially with my Action Learning Project. Oh, and 2 assignments are due on Wednesday.

Then there is work and I’ve also been away, both for work and leisure 🙂

I’m grateful to Cee to come up with such amazing challenges which I’m enjoying participating in. In this post, I’m sharing my world and if you like reading such posts, go on to Cee’s site and check out more entries – just click here.

Right, now for the questions and answers.

Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?

I remember it being easy. I was lazy and left things to the last minute, didn’t enjoy homework and didn’t study enough. I could’ve aced all my subjects but I don’t like studying so…

List some of your favorite types of animals.

Cats!

What is your favorite large city you have been to? What is the one thing you remember most?

San Francisco! The Golden Gate bridge without a doubt. I was gobsmacked when I walked on it. I was finally there. I never thought I would ever visit…until I did. So, keep your dreams alive and work towards them. You will surprise yourself, for sure.

I’m going to Cape Town on Thursday to do a talk, and I know I’m going to come back with more Table Mountain pictures.

Until then…have a great week!
