I reported on my pet friend Pongo's death in our last newsletter. Thank you so much for all your messages of encouragement, and empathy. Perdita, his sister, mourned a lot, became timid and clingy. So she now has a new companion, Cody Bear, who came from Yorkie Rescue (where older dogs sometimes don't easily get new owners). He is 7 and fitting in very well.

I'm being treated for PTSD (the sensory and emotional power of the impact when Pongo was killed (allied to previous and recent events) led to an accumulated stress situation, and was a tipping point). The nightmares and flashbacks are reducing - so getting there!

I'm running the HR module of their MSc in Project Management for a local University. It's proving very insightful to guage the differences between academic and "real world" business approaches, and the different value that they each provide.

Thomas Merton:
If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair,but ask me what I am living for, in detail, and ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for.

Henry David Thoreau:
The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation

Thomas Merton:
It has never been more true than now that the world is lost in its own falsity and cannot see true values.

Let your life speak

Henry David Thoreau:
If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal - that is your success
