It’s a new world and changing rapidly by the day. I intend to change with it. I can no longer have the same goals and dreams that I had 10 years ago – or even 1 week ago.
Thousands of scientists aren’t wrong. I feel that if I kept on living my life as I always have, it would be tantamount to doing that in 1937 when people were still saying, “Nah – there won’t be another war!) Remember Chamberlain? “Peace in our time!”
So – no more air travel. I have been incredibly fortunate to have seen much of the world. I have fulfilled many travel dreams. I have hiked in the Alps so many times. I’ve done that.
I intend to turn the passion I have for those very long walks into a new endeavour – one that is different but, I hope, equally exciting and challenging and with, I believe, even greater rewards.
That’s how it feels now.
And it excites me.
Talking to Simon today – I haven’t laughed that joyously or happily in a long time. No one has ever made me laugh as much as him – in fact, that out-of-control laughing has led to more than one awkward situation. ‘Nuff said about that.
I love the way I am feeling right now at this very moment.
Love washing over and through me.
Sappy? Yup. And I don’t care.
