The world is watching and shaking it’s collective head..

So as having lived in Vancouver Canada for the past 16 years and now returned to live in New Zealand I recognise the cognitive dissonance and anxiety that listening to the latest cringe making tweets from Trump, is better at a distance. Thank you ‘Can he do that?’ For giving me what I need to know while remaining curious about the most incredulous time in American politics played out on the world stage. Bravo !

Always listen

This always explains stuff that I have not paid enough attention to - which allows me to do that! So, I understand complex information without having to work through all of the details myself - Great!
