As a risk taker, I committed to taking on the first blog, lol! It’s been challenging but worthwhile! My reason for joining the communication committee was simple, I am not the best communicator. So how better to learn than to take that leap. So here goes….
In the middle of `one of those nights, where your thoughts are racing, the lights off, no sounds, except the sound of a humming generator and the soothing sound of the Vaal river, trying to think of my best highlight of the day. I recalled George, the last person I met during the network café session!
At 2:00pm the item on the agenda was the network café. I could not imagine how this would work, especially with the drowsiness that sneaks up on you after having lunch. I tried to imagine what a network café would be, with many random thoughts popping into my mind. Maybe in the cafeteria? Maybe round tables with cups of coffee? Maybe moving close to the beautiful natural scenery of the Vaal waters? With all these random thoughts, yet trying to keep calm.
Under the tall shady tree in front of the training room, we lined up from shortest to tallest. It still did not make sense to me. Seconds later, we started moving in our newly formed line up to the hall. Inside we had to sit short ones occupied inner chairs, and taller ones on the chairs in the outside circle.
