Today is the 9th anniversary of my enforced retirement from the world of business. That seems like a long time when you say it out loud; but it’s just a snap in hindsight, goes so fast.
And the changes in my life, our lives, since that day are far more extreme (and not unwelcome) than I might ever have imaged possible ten years ago. Different challenges, different pleasures, different skills, different vices, different speeds.
I’ll almost certainly have a long nap in celebration this afternoon!
You are magnetic north;
All my paths converge on you.
You are the tropics;
my Cancer and my Capricorn.
You are the forests;
the leafy groves where my dreams dwell.
You are the mountains,
with heights I could not imagine.
You are the seven seas;
I bob on your waves and tides.
You are the equator;
the widest part of my existence.
You are my world.
