In three weeks I will be finished in the business – forever.
We have decided to go away for nearly 4 months. That’s locked in. And although I don’t have cash to burn, the truth is I can take my family anywhere in the world. I’m not used to such freedom. 9 years of specialisation – working on a business and raising a family – has so many of the upsides, but freedom is not one of them. Today, again, I’m a little daunted by the prospect of freedom. Where there is real freedom perhaps the only thing that propels and contains is desire. My desire is a muted voice in the recesses of my soul. Speak up!
Then there is the much bigger question of where, after our travels, my (and Emma’s) desire takes me in 2013 and beyond. For now, that freedom is way too big to be matched with my timid (furtive?) desire. One step at a time.
