It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn.
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you.
The journey is part of the experience — an expression of the seriousness of one’s intent. One doesn’t take the A train to Mecca.
“We must use every means possible to find and track down this individual.”
My question remains: why is it so important Simon? By making this into such a big deal, Mr Grindrod is creating the impression that he is rather touchy on the subject of his own sexuality. A more suspicious person than myself would begin to wonder whether Grindrod does not have something to hide. Does he perhaps suffer from internalized homophobia and is he perhaps gay?
By pursuing the matter “mercilessly”, he also runs the risk of appearing thin-skinned, prissy and vindictive. We now all know that the author of the Blog is an unstable publicity seeker, so few people would take the claims on the Blog seriously.
If Mr Grindrod had more political sense, he would just let sleeping dogs lie. By making such a fuss he is creating more suspicion than he might think.
