Study Visits

Fantastic study visit to Arduin in Netherlands last week, more about the learning to come. Thoughts include "outcomes are not a monitoring exercise" and creating social businesses takes enterprise....

If I was going to be supported, its them I would want to support me. Not least because I could choose a doing kind of life and I am a doing sort of person... well most of the time anyway.

Whilst you wait for the more learned parts of my learning here's a short story that reminds us why resting on tour matters. I will be back with the real lessons soon....

Post Script to a Study Visit......

I went for that massage I had planned on Saturday afternoon. The masseuse said “do you want me to massage you lightly”, I said “no, pummel me with a brick”. ......She did..... apparently.

My friend Valerie and I shared a session and Valerie said it was pure comedy. This woman was belting me and poking me in the back with her elbows and I was face down snoring like a pig. 

All I remember is.....” I would like an absolute and unrelenting pummelling” please and then “excuse me madam, excuse me madam”.... as she tried to wake me up. She came close to having to douse me with ice cold water and shove me off the massage couch..... I think....

I hope the massage was good.... It cost a bit that little snoozette......
I hope I learned a lot in Holland. I need to rest a bit to find out........
