Every day is women's day, however...

... it being International Women's Day today, I was asked "If you could meet your younger self at the start of your working life, what advice would you give?" Took me back to a talk and blog post a few years back. Sharing it here, for all of it means as much today as it did then!

ONE: Listened to a discourse on the appreciation of western classical music…. hmm… was almost convinced, but not quite… Pancham sent a link….take a look at

TWO: Read Shakespeare (Julius Caesar) with my 16 year old daughter, Ada….. more interesting that no 1) above.
