Looking Back

I know we often are told not to look back, supposedly it's bad for us, but really isn't it quite nice every now and then to just pour ourselves a glass of wine (because most things in life are almost always certainly better when accompanied with a glass of wine), pull up a pew, and to take…Read more Looking Back

A ‘Pre-Adventure’ Adventure

Thoughts... It's become bog standard protocol to want to get to wherever it is we're heading to in as quick a time as viably possible, hasn't it?
