A little later than we'd intended but the system demands that forms be filled, I’s dotted and T’s crossed. It all takes time. More, much more than we thought. No matter though, for the first time in years, time was something we had in spades. Well, that and ambition. Motivation too.
Throughout the finest West Cork winter in memory, we walked up hill and down dale - dog in tow. Thinking; always thinking. About the past for sure but mostly about the future. "What is and what should never be" as Led Zeppelin once put it. As we crossed woodlands carpeted with copper and russet leaves or ambled high above crystalline waters, we challenged long-held beliefs and refined our thoughts. Digging deep, we thought then thought about values and loyalties; the things that matter above all else.. Refreshed, with sharpened instincts and a narrowed focus, we then sought counsel from trusted sources. Forging fresh alliances, we drew upon familiar talents (as well as the odd favour) and learnt new skills on the fly. We knew what needed to be done. All done now, we think. But, in truth, you’re never really ready. Nor should you ever be. That's what keeps it interesting.
To blog or not to blog? That is the question.
Well, we're new here but we’ve decided to give it a go. In our minds eye the blog will be an allusive, freewheeling narrative on whatever we’re at, our many inspirations or whatever it is that takes our fancy at any given time. We've much to draw upon from life's rich pageant. It's all fair game and if we’re in the mood we’ll slay some sacred cows and settle a few scores. Just because we can. And because we've earned the right.
"The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there".
Don't they just...
Oh and before we go, best introduce you to the Boss - the one that must be obeyed; the one that calls the shots; the one that gets us out of bed in the morning. As you can see, those walks have taken their toll. Clearly, its never just about the thinking; its always about the doing. Always.
Tomorrow's a new day and we can't wait. Talk soon.
