death clothes

What do you do with the clothes you wore on the day someone you love dies?
Can you ever wear them again?
Do you wear them separately and never together, never in the same combination that you wore on the day of the death?
Do you give them away?
Do you keep them?
What happens if they tear?
Do you throw them away?
Can you throw them away?
What do you tell yourself?

executive education

Yes, that's right fans and avid readers! Given that this is who I really am, it is only befitting that I spent all of last week attending an Executive Education workshop.


So here is my experience, summed up in a few key buzzwords. If you are a real Executive, you will be able to spot the fake :


1. Leadership
2. Strategy
3. Development
4. Goals
5. Entrepreneurship
6. Social Responsibility
7. Drinks
8. Smart Casuals
9. Networking


If you are unable to spot the fake, please go get yourself a drink and try again.

how to travel on a domestic flight if you do peritoneal dialysis

1. Drain out the dextrose solution from your body the night before your flight.
2. Take the earliest morning flight to your destination.
3. Arrive, begin a 24 hour countdown and get aclimatized 

4. Set up an appointment with a hospital for a session of heamodialysis - this appointment should begin approximately at the time your 24 hour countdown ends. 
5. Go for heamodialysis
6. Do what you need to do for the next 2 days
7. Go for heamodialysis again on the 3rd day

8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the entire duration of your stay
9. Fly back
10. Resume peritoneal dialysis when you are back at home
