So the week has been very exhausting and as I said earlier, very humbling with the response. I'll probably do national TV next week so keep watching Bloggy thing for details. This whole journey is about creating opportunities for myself, not sitting down feeling sorry. Seems lots of people are relating to my story in some way because that is what my future DotsHQ is all about, sharing experiences which will create opportunities. Which leads me to a moment I wish to share, because THAT is what my DotsHQ network is going to do, share our experiences.
With the recent publicity I receved an email from a friend of mine who I haven't seen for 30 YEARS! Vanessa was my PA back when I worked in the Public sector. We were very close friends (Vanessa was blessed to have known her husband from basically childhood) and shared a very close network of friends at that time. We shared and laughed about the good old days and I cried when I tried to recite my poem Mister SomeOne Out-There to her. My emotions are seriously playing havoc with my soul at the moment but just that one friendly connection has put a smile on my dial to last a lifetime. Thankyou for coming back into my life Vanessa. I love you.
This journey, MY journey is going to be full of these moments and I welcome them. DotsHQ is my dream. It is all about connecting the dots, about sharing our experiences as happened with me today. As I have said it is not FaceBook, it is much, much more. It is about becoming ONE with each other. As Vanessa and I (and Steve Jobs) know only too well :
"It Is The Journey That Is The Reward"
