To step out of the world, to stop for a little bit ... I discover that I am tired.
I discover so many ideas clamouring to be explored.
I see a need to change how I live.
My mind was still racing and so I began with one of those meditative visualisations ...imagine you are lying on a beach in a beautiful place, then smiled, as I understood my reality. I am here in a beautiful place, lying on a comfortable bed in a exquisitely decorated bedroom, in Italy.
Viktoria Mullova is playing Bach on my laptop, quietly, without destroying the peace of the Piedmont countryside.
Sitting outside earlier, just before Diana and I set out to the market in Acqui Terme, I looked up ... of course there are grapes growing overhead here.
