Pink berries! #ThursdayTreeLove

Most of them are non-fiction ones, dealing with technical or business mangement topics. There are a few fiction ones too, that were mostly contributed by colleagues. On that... Continue Reading →

Wisdom inspired by plants/trees... You walk towards the kitchen in the morning and what first catches your eye is the branches of a tree against the sky, seen straight ahead through the kitchen window. The fresh green of the new leaves gleaming in the sunlight. Each morning, you try to take in this view and... Continue Reading →
