He is stable now, but the reality of his illness will never fade. We will always cut our watermelons with butter knives. My brother and family have not lacked Christian support since his disease.   More than ever before, we are living in a world that is being transformed and disrupted. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is here and while people across the planet enthusiastically embrace the new convergence between the physical, digital and biological worlds, there is also uncertainty and apprehension. Businesses find themselves trailing in the pace of change.

The image is included in the post for this.   Gwyneth Paltrow urges others to 'write a book, learn an instrument' during self-isolation after shopping in mask and gloves at LA farmer's market.
