It has been an exceptionally long week.
There wasn’t much corporate activity during the winter months while South Africa battled a third wave of covid. This was a good thing for me as my dad’s illness and Michael’s poor health and first operation in June challenged my resilience. My colleague and I used this time to prepare the regulatory training for the firm and to consider the impact of new regulations on our product offering.
In mid September, there was a sudden increase in activity among our clients and we have been flat out for over three weeks. I like to be busy but trying to do six months of work in just two months is a bit excessive. I am expecting to be overworked for the rest of this year.
Anyhow, despite being frantically busy, there have been a few nice book happenings recently.
My book won the Rave Reviews Book Club Best Book Cover Contest which is very exciting. Thank you to everyone who voted for A Ghost and His Gold, I appreciate you.
I was invited to submit some of my poems and extracts from my books to Diverse TV Writings on the Wall Europe hosted by Alexandro Botelho.
Here is Alexandro reading my poem, My Colour Palette of Dreams, from Open a new door, a collection of poems:
