I had a moment of creativity…

…and I just wrote this thought down into ello.co, but I know no one will see it there, so I am re-posting it here. As I looked out over the glassy surface of the calm South China Sea, that was lapping at my feet, I was filled with an utterly profound sense of longing; to […]

If wishing made it so…

I need to find a way to make the ideas in this video a reality for some of the awesome people I have worked with and do work with now. There really can be profit and balance, growth and humanity – there is no need to work “every hour that God sends”, there is just […]

Dela Costa Street we spent Saturday-gone moving into our freshly found, permanent […]

Our Man in Makati..?

So, finally, after two and a half weeks of being here – a BLOG POST! We arrived in the Philippines after a remarkably easy journey… Seriously both Lee-Anne and I were experiencing a considerable amount of anxiety over how the kids would fare with two eight hour flights back to back, but they were fantastic […]
