How I’m spending my Quaran-time

I haven’t been on the blog in a minute. Quarantine is a lot. It’s an odd time.  The world is in the midst of the massively overused but appropriate – ‘unprecedented times’.  We’re locked down for safety. All over the world. People are dying and suffering in the thousands. It…

Working in an international environment in the Netherlands, I consistently take for granted my lack of language skills. Here I am awed, by colleagues and friends, who speak, two, three, four, five plus languages, whereas they see this as something as run of the mill. Depending on their backgrounds, they’ve…
