“Every life is a story and every story makes for equity, because if you value every story than no story can be better than another, just different places in a story -line. Story brings us out. Story privileges the person, the unique, and our humanity, but not our concepts or our roles.”

Such courage

While contemplating my ‘lot’, a friend recommended  I check out the video, ‘Riding with Larry’ on Facebook.  Swimming against the tide; very moving.

A personal reminder which I summed up as …

“Live with and in hope”

Nearly home time

I am teaching again tonight in Beijing and again tomorrow before crossing the city and teaching 90 students enrolled in our leadership degree for 3 days. Monday I fly home. Forecast at home will be 19° to 34°. I will leave Beijing with a low of zero and a high of 2°!! Start the engines

Waking up to -2°C

I start my second teaching series tomorrow, having flown from xi’an to Beijing this afternoon. And I am in the process trying to shake off a very nasty virus. Plenty of nasal spray’s. Hot water. Cough lollies.

 I’ve noticed that relentless coughing does seem to have an impact on the conversations you have on a plane. 

I was relieved to see the number of people that have earphones and probably were less affected by my barking.

I won’t mention some difficult conversations with airline staff on both flights, Adelaide to Sydney, and from Sydney to Shanghai, about the rationale for my continuing into China with the flu. Determination required. (instead of ‘determination required’ Siri had written ‘termination required’). Is this something subliminal about phones? Who is this referring to? Is this big brother? Or perhaps I am overtired.

And who welcomed me to a new day?

It was “moncha” (in the line of monchacino), a reminder of our coffee needs;- other methods weren’t as effective
