Happy New Year!
Sorry I’m a bit slow off the mark. I’ve been travelling on the cold side of the world – reconnecting with friends, catching up with family, revisiting some familiar places and gathering ideas for my next project. I lived in England for 11 years, but there’s something very special about returning after a long break and visiting the old haunts with fresh eyes.
Nostalgia has a way of colouring the past, but luckily all of my favourite places were even more impressive than I remembered (although the traffic is much worse and air travel is a complete nightmare). And my friends – they haven’t changed a bit!
Travel is so rewarding, but it also has a way of altering time. My month away felt more like a year. Cramming every day with haunted hotels, crazy drivers, snow-capped peaks, grand architecture, wonder and laughter sure makes life feel fuller and longer.
So, it’s out with the routine and in with life for 2017. There’s just one item on my New Year’s resolutions list:
- DO MORE
I hope 2017 brings you everything you’re aiming for. Have a good one.
