Been waiting for the night to fall
Now everything is bearable
And here in the still
All that you hear Is tranquillity...

There is a star in the sky
Guiding my way with its light
And in the glow of the moon
Know my deliverance will come soon
Made it to Singapore (busy work week)..
...the second part of the trip is looking to be a bit of challenge re SA travel restrictions i.e. I can get there, but the process involved with the return voyage is not so clear. ATM it's looking like I'll be doing an extended trip in Singapore without the leg to America; although things may change after November 3.
Busy work week + made 80L of beer, banded 20 goats & ended off with a goat with heartwater; 3 days & goat doesn't look like it'll survive. FYI goats usually perk up after a thiamine injection; fella appeared to recover but took a dive again; then started with oxytetracycline injections...

Sadly he didn't; heartwater has a 50/50 survival chance.
Goats are really cute, especially when they young < 4 months.
It's been a busy time.
A new client in Texas needed a lot of my time to get our consultant up to speed.
Friday I flew down to Durban; my mom is retiring on the Farm -- we travelled back this morning. Feeling quite exhausted now; a beer, some grub and then off to bed.

Period ahead is just as busy; I need to travel to Singapore for +-3 weeks, followed by Texas for +-3 weeks to be back in SA by December.
Anyone who studies the history of ideas should notice how much more often people on the political left, more so than others, denigrate and demonize those who disagree with them; instead of answering their arguments.

Black activists and white progressives stress racism because it serves their own interests, not because it actually improves the station of blacks.

Don't assume people who have your best interests at heart aren't also your biggest critics.
I want to see those whom I love succeed, and absolute honesty is a vitally part of ensuring that success.

Plus if you can't be honest with friends and family, then who would you ever be honest with.

Most people find the hardest person to be honest with - is themselves. Because, in your mind, you carry the perceived judgements of others - and often you see yourself through the eyes of others, rather than through you own eyes. But as you age and gain life experience - you begin to value the truth of your own ideas and observations.

Well said.... it's also hard establishing a relationship between family and friends that has absolute honesty (occasionally brutal)... but the rewards once you do are immeasurable. It's why friends and family need to be treasured; they afterall experience you at your worst and at your best, and they don't try to cancel you.

Good and bad are judgements made by society. So if a person conforms to these norms, they are seen as good. Those that do not conform, are seen as bad.
I don't miss the way it hurts
A blessing? It's a curse
For better or for worse
(Don't follow me, follow me)
Like a child, I have learned
Everybody waits their turn
Like a phoenix, I will burn
(Don't follow me, follow me)
There's a club if you'd like to go
You could meet somebody who really loves you
So you go and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home and you cry
And you want to die

When you say it's gonna happen "now"
When exactly do you mean?
See I've already waited too long
And all my hope is gone

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
And you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
