Not-so-mindless Chatter

Not-so-mindless Chatter

Rain patters
The mad hatter
should not be blamed for mindless chatter
I would too, trapped as I am in an endless cycle of sunrises and sunsets without a clear distinction of what day it is

The days of the week start to look like a mindless invention of ancient past
When it’s clear that we’ve needed just 3 days needed all along: yesterday, today and tomorrow

Does it matter?
As long as things get done and we awake again,
pressing a bit closer to the mark of the high calling,
as we gear up to an unexpected unveiling of the unique giftings that the Spirit laid in us.

Maybe, maybe not.
The mundane may have been overrated, the overrated mundane

But as hours roll into days,
time stands still, as it races straight for the end of this age

Did I catch your attention?
Now that we no longer are chasing our tails,
and the passage of time,
as important and weighty as the personality of our prison-partners…

Does it matter?
The character that you were asked to pay attention to…
The values that you thought didn’t count…
The voice of your children, their questions and insecurity –
The yawning voids that you should have filled

Can we banter?
Delve into what it means to have arrived at this point –
And what it would take to get us out…
And headed to where we thought we were going in the first place

With over 15 years of sewing under her belt, she has over time in her experience with a wide range of female clothing and the female form, constructed entire wardrobes from the scratch. She brings this wealth of exposure and experience to bear in running her fashion house (Hadassah's Stitches Fashion House), guiding the production of dresses for sale, leveraging on her gift for fabric selection to suit contexts and soothe sensory needs. She also teaches classes on garment construction, pattern drafting and the business of fashion.

An International Youth Council member and Global Youth Ambassador, she sits on the boards of several youth-led organizations in an advisory capacity; and continues to work with others to help develop children and young people to create a life of impact.

An avid food lover, chef and food critic, Hadassah spends her time creating new dishes, working as a private chef and running ZoéSpice Kitchen and Events. She is also curating her uniquely crafted kitchen secrets to be passed on. She puts all of her medical and nutritional experience together with over a decade of cooking and crafting recipes to create meal plans for her clients, helping them achieve a healthy lifestyle and desired body goal, based on everyday food items.

At the heart of her entrepreneurial ventures, she is the Executive Director of CriArt Skill Academy, a tech-driven school for creatives and neurodivergents to learn creative, social and life skills as backed up by their school curriculum. The wide array of options mean that no one is left behind, and there's an option that works for every student.

An avid writer, she uses her books and articles to educate, inform and entertain, making them valuable supporting resources in her work as a coach, mentor and teacher. They are available as e-copies, audiobooks, and in print.

At Phronesis Lighthouse, she continues to link people with knowledge, and ready to share, with people who are hungry to learn via programs, training, courses, and networking events.

At the very core of her being, Hadassah keeps chasing after The One who keeps her balanced and finds the ultimate fulfillment in her fellowship with the Holy Spirit. She quips that He is the real super power that keeps her functioning as an autistic person with ADHD, and often shares the insights He teaches her on Personal Development, Business Development and mindset reorientation according to the Word with Deborah's Court (her ministry expression).
