I am using it here for several reasons. The first to celebrate INTERNATIONAL WOMENS' DAY and the embrace was not staged but the symbolism was very significant because they are her children's GRAN MOTHERS.
But my visit to Uncle Allan yesterday ,March 8, 2018 had an unusual twist because I don't watch news at my home . But the news reporter sent an introductory alert that RBC was closing down more branches and being a RBC member myself the sensational alert sparked my interest. However ,after the interview I could only conclude that some people and some news agencies still want to keep us in the STONE AGE .
Thank God, at retirement I have embraced the NEW TECHNOLOGY. Being around some of my old colleagues is so fatalistic is like they are just waiting around to die, they forgot about living quality lives. For quality to me means KEEPING ABREAST.
With the help of my young support, my computer & my camera I am staying alive and abreast with what is cutting edge. And I was happy that I was there because after hearing the reporter Aunty Cynthia contemplated hard on issues of removing herself from the bank and I promised here that I would passed on what I learnt and learning BECAUSE THE TECHNOLOGY IS USER FRIENDLY(you see I even using the peoples' jargons) and they infused WE CULTURE IN IT.
You see , there was a time when this process was the other way around(she imparting to me-she was a teacher ,mind you, at the primary level, not mine but I lived in her home). So I see this simply as giving back.
I began my work life at around 17 and My first job was in teaching. So I had my registration for this profession very early. I got my first dismissal when the principal found out that I was leaving to attend University. The pathetic old man had to give me a speech which explained his doubts about pinning the concept SUPERIORITY COMPLEX or INFERIORITY COMPLEX on me. But by giving me that letter I had no doubts which of the complexes he pinned on me. But the respectable and bright old man gave me the most POSITIVE MESSAGE BY HIS USE OF NEGATIVITY.
