The Magi – a poem

Today is the 6th January, 3 Kings day in several countries. But who is to say if the Magi were Kings? They were astronomers. Perhaps they were not even only men, and nowhere in the bible does it say that there were 3 of them The Israelites had a tradition of personifying wisdom as a…

Coping with challenges

I have been in my new job for 4 months now. Today I got a call from my old job. The lady who had taken over from me had not been able to cope with the challenge. She was being replaced by a new person, and had gone off sick in protest. Today she handed…
