Too Hot to Talk to a Peanut - A Collection of Articles is, as the name suggests, a series of short observations on society shaped by the experience, and in part by the philosophy, of an ex-pat mother living in Saudi Arabia and Cyprus. As we move further into the 21st Century perhaps this is the right time to pause and take stock before we make irreversible mistakes. Should we take more steps to curb global population growth, to protect the environment, to better educate? Today's children are tomorrow's decision-makers, are they up to the job with current educational standards tied in with a shallow media-driven me-culture? From cold weather to queuing Barbara Steel Knowles voices qualified opinion before finally focusing the lens on herself: A once driven professional woman now reflects and decides that multi-tasking is mainly a preoccupation for careerists and that perhaps there is, or should be, a time to dream and reflect ... and write.
A dedicated teacher for twenty plus years and counting! Barbara Steel Knowles has lived in Germany, Saudi Arabia and Cyprus and finds inspiration in life's small moments.
