Thoughts on change

It's really nice to go away, on your own, to a place where the nature of your visit means that you are forced to spend evenings in a comfortable, warm room, with nothing to do and nobody to visit, lying on your bed and reading (or hooping till you can't hoop any more). There is something to be said for compulsory relaxation.

It's even nicer to return home and to realise that while you were perfectly happy being away in this state of relaxation - not emotionally torn or at a loss or missing people - the things you're returning to make you very happy indeed.

I like that the relationship I'm in is one that doesn't consume my life to the point where I'm lost without my partner, but that at the same time, coming together after a separation brings me great joy. I'm sure this is how it's supposed to be, but it's something I've never achieved in the past.

I know that a lot of you are off today, tomorrow and over the weekend, so I'm going to take this opportunity to say have a wonderful time, I hope you get everything you can possibly squeeze out of it, that you get the burn you need not the one you want. And if you would, please think of me while you're in the Temple.

See you all on the other side.
