Take note

Reading prevents your life ever narrowing down to the humdrum, the routine or the boring.

Extraordinary People – Arthur Goodland

Cheerful, bespectacled with thin gold rims, chubby-fat, cherubic Arthur Goodland, kindness in the very soul of him, lover of beauty in nature, art and woman-kind – one would not automatically at all see in him the extremely well-trained chemical engineer and hard-driving top executive in a highly successful company and industry. 

The Idea of Excellence

I interrupt my series on Extraordinary People to reflect on the concept of excellence which is involved, one way or another, with any life which is exceptional or exemplary.

Extraordinary People in My Life

Rex Nettleford I found people liked to recall the royalty of his name and nature but thought that King was too high and mighty so they named him a prince of men and that somehow seemed right.

Extraordinary people

In a long life I have been lucky to  encounter many exceptional people who have added greatly to the flavour of living and  the range of one’s experience of this marvelous world.


Many of us at some time or another, generally in a new year, have resolved to “keep a diary,” probably as part of some grand and comprehensive plan to organize one’s life better and achieve great things – plans, I am afraid, which very soon run aground on the dangerous shoals of everyday living.
