I went away for a bit; for work and a bit of r and r to a friend in Knysna. And I came back this afternoon. I couldn’t check email while I was gone; I had no Big Friendly to make cyberspace magic for me, so when I switched on my lappie I was a bit nervous. I’ve been catching up and watching the Obama inauguration. It’s been a pretty cool way to get back into things; filled with intention, integrity, hope and straight talk. I want to just hang on to that feeling and those ideas as I start my own work this year. And I am wishing that for all.
