“Once we were blobs in the sea, and then fishes, and then lizards and rats and then monkeys, and hundreds of things in between. This hand was once a fin, this hand once had claws! In my human mouthTerry Pratchett – A Hat Full of Sky
I have the pointy teeth of a wolf and the chisel teeth of a rabbit and the grinding teeth of a cow! Our blood is as salty as the sea we used to live in! When we’re frightened, the hair on our skin stands up, just like it did when we had fur. We are history! Everything we’ve ever been on the way to becoming us, we still are. […]
I’m made up of the memories of my parents and my grandparents, all my ancestors. They’re in the way I look, in the colour of my hair. And I’m made up of everyone I’ve ever met who’s changed the way I think.”
It’s been a while. Much has changed in the past year. Firstly, there was Riaan’s diagnosis with Juvenile Onset Parkinsons Disease. Then, I helped out with tutoring some English.
When that happened I relearned something. I am an utter and total English nerd. I love being able to deploy words like hyperbolic and hydraphobic in conversation when the opportunity arises.
And so, I made a decision. I am no longer aspiring to be a WordPress professional. I will continue to love WordPress. I know that I will stay involved in the local community. I am still keeping going to WordCamp Europe and WordCamp US on my bucket list. (And to get WordCamp Africa or Southern Africa to happen.)
Now, I will continue to play with code and I am pivoting to teach English professionally.
Love and Evolution,
