So what of the next decade? At the start of every year I wonder what next? And every year interesting possibilities seem to emerge. I start this year with optimism. I am looking forward to meeting Doug Cole who is interested in joining me on the lifewide education project which I feel is need of a serious injection of energy and new ideas. I am also thinking about my new book project although I have yet to decide on the idea I will explore. But I am confident that with a bit of imagination and an open disposition something will emerge as I interact with this beautiful and unpredictable world.
As I drove past a cemetry near where I live which looks onto Box Hill .I was struck by the brighteness and beauty of it all. The hill was covered in low cloud, but the whole scene was framed by a deep blue sky. I could not imagine a more peaceful and uplifting final resting place. It seemed to provide me with a rich metaphor for the past, the present and an eternal future fullof hope and possibility.
