I love the road and the road loves me! I love cars, roadtrips and everything they represent … nature, time with loved ones, discovery, adventure. Cars … and all their parts … fascinate me. How each part works with the others to ensure a smooth ride and how when one part is off, the ride […]
“Waiter! A plate of salt please.” Sorry, what?! A plate of salt! No-one goes into a restaurant to order a plate of salt. Even you nyama-choma (char-grilled meat) loving Kenyans may ask for salt on the side, but not a plateful. I am Salt! I love to cook and experiment with new recipes. It has […]
Every time I’m in a meeting or a session and someone tells me to set SMART goals, my stomach sinks and my mind goes into automatic lockdown. I hate SMART goals. I’ve never really had a bad experience with them, but I cannot say that I have had an amazing experience with them either. So, […]
