Blue shoes didn’t top list of things I wanted. I certainly did not need them, but when they came into my life almost accidentally, I fell in love with them. These shoes may look quite ordinary, but to me they are very special. They beg me to dance.
Working life has taken me by surprise. I had not expected to enjoy it so soon. There’s much to be said for saying ‘yes’ when opportunity knocks. In the past, I’ve said ‘yes’ to new challenges. Sometimes, I’ve spent a year or more working out what on earth I was doing.
A career twist, like a plot twist, sends a life in a new direction. I once promised myself I’d grasp opportunities as they presented. That was forty years ago. You’d think I’d have changed. But apparently not.
