About Me

So I am not working at the moment...trying to do things that make sense to me like travel and figuring out how to set up a business somewhere.

I recently did a 10 day course in Vipassana meditation and then went back and did another 5 - loved it...total silence for the whole duration (no communication whatsoever with anyone, just meditation, walk, eat sleep). It was a great way to slow down and is something in great contrast to my ambition to do something entrepreneurial where you have to be quite neurotic and keep doing something till it works!
