Wish me luck. I am about to go on an epic journey.
I have been planning today’s trip forward in time all my life. Everything I have done, everything I have said and written has brought me to this point.
I will soon be 68. To some that is pretty old, to others I am still a spring chicken. I have not achieved as much in my life as I hoped for when I left University in 1968. Then I had ambition and now I am retired. My 3 children have each had far more successful careers than me and I am delighted in sharing their successes.
I am married, and have been for a quarter of a century – three times longer than I was married to the mother of my children.
I do not yet know what I will find on my journey into the future, nor can I yet report it here as I have not yet learned how to travel back in time. I suspect too that I will never learn that or I would be reporting it here!
So off I go. My journey has started.
See you on the other side..
