Winnie the Pooh Wisdom……

Like most tots I use to watch Winnie the Pooh and now looking back I see the amount of wisdom that is in this cartoon that I once thought was cute but silly. It’s weird how when you’re a kid it has a different meaning and when you get older you can see things from a different perspective, (in some cases things become a lot more clear and others its gets a bit fuzzy lol).

A Sprinkle of Sunshine……..

So we’ve been experiencing some beautiful sunshine here in the U.K., which inspired me to write this little piece, although today it’s been pouring down with rain pretty much all day!

Jean-Paul Sartre: On Why We Shouldn’t Live In Bad Faith

“His voice his eyes express an interest a little too solicitous for the order of the customer.” Jean-Paul Sartre

I couldn’t help but think if people do put on a mask wherever they go by playing a role other than who they really are; both out in the world of work/school and at home.
