Aye, there’s the rub…

There are two things to aim at in life; first to get what you want, and after that to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind has achieved the second.
Logan Pearsall Smith

I like this quote. Is it ever enough, when we look around at what we’ve achieved? I enjoy meditating and going back in my mind to invite an earlier version of me to walk into the room and have some tea. Will she be impressed and full of anticipation, or will she be appalled regarding x, y or z? Sometimes we can’t see the view for the mountain still looming up.

I’m possibly facing a long bike ride in the rain to see a new client about a very exciting job. I shall cling to my thought of rain being  ‘A thousand kisses deep.’ Thank you Leonard Cohen. Close to a billion kisses out there. A long hot bath afterwards could bribe this ‘cat’ into doing this trip. A billion kisses are best enjoyed really slowly, at like thirty kms per hour.
