‘Some people as they grow up become less. … Other people as they grow up become more.’*
This is a choice we make.
Today I become 57 years young, and I am moving on. Out of the organisation I’ve been with for 36 years and into dreamwhispering and doodling.
A number of people think I’m retiring – I certainly I know people my age who are doing just that, but this is a beginning.
I have come to know what I must do and am moving forward.
All those 57 years ago, my parents Marjorie and Jack gave me a name, and life got personal. And I remember when Christine and I named our own children: Matthew, Charlotte, and Luke. This was a thing of hope.
My work with others is on first name terms, journeying together, something hopeful lived towards the future. About life being more, not less.
How we go about it is our choice: it’s personal.
‘Life is a continuous exploration of ever more reality. Life is a constant battle against everyone and anything that corrupts and diminishes it’s reality.’*
