Today my past came rushing up to meet me, in two very different ways. In the morning I saw an old familiar face, belonging to someone who knew me – back then – better than I knew myself; and in the late afternoon I discovered that this former employee of Freehills has become a news item on the company website due to my speech last week (see posts below).
Life twists and turns in ways that we don’t see coming and often don’t understand at the time. People and choices and experiences have consequences that change our lives; what comes next along our path is inevitably some reinterpretation, however tangential, of what came before it. Like the infinity symbol, repetition and transformation, in time and outside it, all at once.
