In the words of Alice and Cat from Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll,
Cat: Where are you going?
Alice: Which way should I go?
Cat: That depends on where you are going.
Alice: I don’t know.
Cat: Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.
I have had the great joy to live and work in more than one place in the world. I became a Mum on the ‘other’ side of 40! I have a long standing vague intention that on the day that my time in this world is up, my bank balance ticks over to zero. Not because I do not want to leave anything to the afore mentioned child, but because I want to live until that day – trying new things, living.
Before you think I do not plan ahead – I do – I simply simultaneously allow unimagined opportunities to filter in and let new paths emerge. That way opportunity can lie, occasionally it is a wrong turn! More often than not the magic of life happens.
History: I formerly blogged as North Melbourne Mum for six years.
