The final frontier*

We call this, “landing the idea.”  Once your idea is out of your head and onto a piece of paper (we prefer paper to pixels on a screen), you can have a proper look at it and get to work on it.
Martin Amor and Alex Pellew

An idea is a form of presence –
Something that could happen with
commitment and investment. 
For this,
Ideas need space –
To be able to move from the mind
to the heart
and onwards into action.
I know this full well because,
This morning,
I was seduced by emails and
setting up meetings,
Bread and circus being replaced by
dopamine and serotonin these days.
As Hugh Macleod has noticed,

Good ideas have lonely childhoods.^

And Captains Kirk, Picard and Archer may well be right,
Though with a little twist from Baines:
Space to explore in,
Rather than exploring space,
Could well be a redefining frontier for us.
