The temptation to go along with the madding crowd can be overwhelming. But if you take a moment to reflect and gain some perspective, the fear mongering and consequent frenzy seems a little ridiculous.
Stay in, drop out and gather insight. You’ll be the richer for it.
…so the world is going batty about the Corona Virus. I rather think this is a great time to re-evaluate our lives and make better use of our time. In short: Chill people! This could be a blessing in disguise.
We live like frantic hamsters on a wheel, taking 2 weeks out to spend time doing nothing is probably the most productive thing you will do!
If we consider that so much of our precious time is spent schlepping to work and back, it is obvious we are still stuck in Industrial Age behaviour about the work environment. It’s ridiculous that in the age of the internet more people aren’t simply working from home and using time more effectively. Furthermore, if you can do what is required of you in less time than your company allows, why shouldn’t you be rewarded with the free time to recreate yourself? This obsession with hoarding workers into a sweaty seat galley and driving them to the edge is so last century.
As a self-employed illustrator and cartoonist I have been working from home for the past 20 years and it has been GREAT! The work still gets done and my clients are delighted with what I produce, so why can’t everybody do the same? It’s about personal responsibility.
Margot Robbie totally stole the show and captivated me in the movie Suicide Squad. I was unprepared for the actress’s mastery of appearing delightfully unhinged. She actually made batshit-crazy utterly endearing.
I have never witnessed anything so beautiful being so utterly terrifying at the same time. Come to think of it, feminine beauty has always been able to corrupt even the most powerful men and make them putty in the hands of a wiley woman. Happily, most woman aren’t batshit crazy like Harley Quinn and want to see everything burn. Otherwise we’d be in big trouble.
Argos has made life difficult for Santa this year.
A local store called Argos produced a stunning Christmas Ad featuring a dad and daughter drumming up a storm to the Simple Minds song: Don’t You Forget About Me”. Needless to say Argos (or Santa) moved a lot of mini drum kits this Festive Season. Not so sure the parents are as delighted as the kids! 😉
