I’m having bale coco milk tea in my Lang and Wise collector mug. It features “Family of Felines,” a painting by Lowell Herrero.

I’m feeling a bit anxious.

On my mind are the riots we had two weeks ago, and the meeting I am attending a few minutes from now. A major shake up at work is in the offing. The Ministry of Education is understandably not happy with the loss of control over erring students.  As my responsibilities do not extend beyond teaching duties, I am not directly involved in anything that happens outside the classroom. I will be affected by repercussions though. And that is what’s making me anxious.

Rumor has it the vice president for academic affairs is assigning me full-time courses in the university and I am saying goodbye to my job at the business institute. My question is will the price still be right? I am going to find out.

A friend’s Face book shout-out last night made me chuckle:

How true although I did not cry in a Mercedes. I just witnessed my ex in-laws arguing in a Mercedes.  That memory connects me to a possibility I am facing in the coming weeks: changes. I am not that keen on faith but I do believe it does wonders. It is perhaps time for me to have a little experiment with

Matthew 6:26 – Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
