We’re all citizens…. of the world

I’m a firm believer that no one can ever take an iota of credit for having been born in Malta, or anywhere else in the world for that matter. Nobody can pat themselves on the back for having had the random and haphazard good fortune of having been...

Words as weapons

Sometimes life takes over and it whooshes me up into a conundrum of very unimportant stuff like politics with a little ‘p’. Every so often I give into my propensity to over analyze the trivial stuff and forget about the bigger picture. That’s when...

Marketing 101
