I am half way into Sheryl Sandberg’s book titled, ‘Lean In’ and I must say its been a good book so far. I think she deserves to be commended for the research she has put into each chapter and I particularly love the way in which she was able to tie her arguments into her personal life stories. She also does a good job of not only celebrating her successes but also acknowledging her failures thus making it humane.
I recently accompanied my mum to the hospital to have an x-ray done.

So, this is an article, I wrote way back…lol. Thought you might enjoy it. Got a newer more refined account which I would share with y’all soon. Of course, I feel differently about driving these days. Enjoy.
Life is something. Daily, we go about our business and “busyness” and 24 hours may not even be enough. From time to time though, we need to literally, step out of time as we know it and examine life from the “outside”. If we do, we will recall something oh so simple: We need to know: What to do?

As human existence has evolved through the centuries, our thinking and lifestyles have followed suit. We have formed and reformed archetypes on how life should be lived and how things should work. These ideals established by the highly intellectual human species, have been passed on from generation to generation. Many of them are the
