The gentle revolution

Had a great chat with Kim today about a whole lot of stuff (as always). Can’t remember exactly what we talked about and am clear that it doesn’t really matter as these conversations have a way of seeping into my life in ways that would not be possible if I was actually trying to do something.…

Learning to relax

I am finally learning to master the art of relaxation. My need to be constantly on the move – doing, seeing, experiencing, working, striving… is falling away. Replaced by a contentedness (is that even a word) with simplicity. We are now day 6 of our Thailand trip and the past two days have been spent…
