Thought for the Day 24 July, 2017


Thought for the Day 24 July 2017

My wife and I were in Cape Town, on business, from Thursday until Sunday so I missed the thoughts for Thursday and Friday. Not that I wasn’t having any thoughts, but they were about the business activities, so they are probably not appropriate to this forum. Now it’s late on Monday and I have been playing catch-up so this post will only get to you tomorrow.

In Cape Town we stayed Thursday night in a hotel and Friday and Saturday nights in an apartment that we booked through airbnb. Purely, by coincidence, the managing agent who met us at the apartment was a fellow author named Michael Smorenburg. I recognized his name from a Facebook Group we both belong to and we had an interesting chat about writing and the challenges it brings. He has written a number of books and I’m planning to read all of them and then review them on Amazon. He gave me a bit of an overview of a couple and they sound enthralling and intriguing. I think I am going to enjoy them. I looked Michael up on Amazon and found his author page at Michael Smorenburg. Check him out there – he’s definitely worth a read.

Anyway, this chance meeting leads to my thought for Monday 24th July.

“Everything happens for a reason!”

I don’t know yet what the reason for this particular meeting is, but I’m sure there will be one. And, when I find out I’m pretty sure it will help both of us. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Life is sometimes stranger than fiction.

Cheers, Dave
