Today was quite a day in terms of the Football world cup. At noon there was a huge support drive in Sandton where approximately 180 000 people got together to show the South African National football team , Bafana Bafana, their support. I wasn't there but I did take a drive from Cresta to Auckland park and back. The spirit was everywhere. I even took the time to blow my own vuvuzela in the back garden. Took the kids to McDonald's tonight as Renita was away and my big boy wanted a hamburger.
Today I felt a little flat even though I completed a project and even started on the next. Nevertheless I was busy with all the daily activities. I'm afraid the orang jacket will be there for a couple of weeks, at least until the end of the world cup I'm sure.
Another image of my study. I want to record this as this is not (yet) what the perfect home office (for me) looks like. Enough space, yes but some organisation required. Yup, this too will change. I see it.
Sunday evening - this is a section of my desk. Time to tidy up or what?
It's very cosy around my work station to the point where sometimes there is just no space to put a piece of paper to write some notes or even do some sketches.
Notice the book there on the right? " Now discover your strengths" by Marcus Buckingham. Very interesting, fits right in with the Wisdoms program. It is a program (the book) about how we, as a society, spend too much time worrying about our weaknesses instead of recognising and really building our strengths. Definition of a strength : consistent near perfect performance in an activity. this is achieved by combining Talent, Knowledge and Skills.
Hmm, best I tidy up soon, regardless of my talent.
Northcliff mountain (hill) - The boys and I love come here and walk along the path and even scramble along the rocks. The view is always great. You can see the smog layer over the city in this photo. We really should try to take better care of our environment, our earth. Let's stop taking things for granted.
We are so blessed with our country, our nature, our weather, let's get out there and see it.
Oh, if you come up here by yourself , find your self a little spot on a rock right on the face of the mountain and do some serious meditating.
