By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk You start to think when the first tell-tale signs started to show. Was it the repetition for years of the same two jokes about being on a seafood food diet and where she sees food and wants to eat it, or that other one about how mangoes where women go? Was [...]

GREY MATTERS

Posted: 22nd April 2017 by We-Enhance in LIFE, Love

By Hans Ebert The sky is grey and so is my mind. It’s been grey for a while. Nothing is black and white. It’s being stuck in the Now and the Now is not what it was. Another birthday beckons and I wonder if I’ll see it through. Or want to see it through. My [...]

By Hans Ebert Depending on where you are in the world, today, October 9, would have been John Lennon’s 76th birthday. Actor Peter Sellers, also a Libran, was born on September 27.

Guess it’s all gone to Goop- the marriage that looked as if it might last forever and which, some of us, saw materialize during a Coldplay concert in Bangkok when Chris Martin sat behind his piano without his band members onstage and dedicated a song to “someone very special in the audience.” He then launched [...]

TIME TO STOP THIS DISEASE OF CRUELTY

Posted: 26th December 2013 by We-Enhance in LIFE, Love

Thinking back to when I was a kid and stupidly bringing down a beautiful and innocent kingfisher with my catapult still haunts me- and will forever. The words from my parents still echo in my mind. What on earth made me do such a senseless and cruel thing? No idea. All I know is that [...]
