Ice-skaters, James & Ciprès, The Sound Of Silence

I recently discovered this video of Vanessa James and Morgan Ciprès ice-skating to Disturbed’s version of The Sound of Silence – please, watch it – it’ll make your heart soar! It’s the music and the silent gliding of their skates on the ice, interspersed with applause. It’ll leave you smiling.

My favourite version…

 

Silent Reflections

It was a cool 2 degrees (centigrade) the last evening I spent in Ghent in January. I took a night walk, taking in the lit up buildings reflected in the still waters of the canals. There was a stillness about the ancient city enveloped by the silence of the night.

St Niklaas Kerk

I’m in a lovely city in Belgium and I’m in love with it. The architecture is awe-inspiring the old and the new side-by-side so naturally, it is as though things were built that way.

This is St Niklaas Kerk (or St Nicholas’s Church), built in the 12th century. St Niklaas was the patron saint of the sailors and merchants, who raised the money to build this incredible and impressive looking church. It’s built in the Scheldt Gothic style, its splendour showing off the wealth and power of the merchants.

There Is Only Growth And Development

I don’t have too many pics of me standing behind a lectern, speaking in public. I have a few of me facilitating workshops at various conferences.

The photo below was taken at the Agile Practitioners Conference in 2016 in Tel Aviv, Israel, of me, facilitating a 90-minute workshop on Leading in an Agile environment. This year I’m planning more conference talks and more pics of me doing such. That is one of my areas of growth for this year.
