I'm doing another talk to the Rotary Club tomorrow. About the trip they sponsored me on last summer with JST.
I did have plans to write a lot here about that but the words don't seem to want to come and I've been sat here with this screen minimised thinking (and playing chainz 2) for twenty minutes or likely more.
It does feel like that trip was a lifetime ago to be honest... and my focus is more on the one that is to begin on Saturday. But it's always nice to look back in order to look forward.
This talk is another interesting to me thing - I used to hate speaking at engagements like this but now I love it and I'm looking forward to it. Another way in which I have changed, I have grown. And one I could never have anticipated coming too. I am still a bit nervous but it doesn't scare me and make me shake and feel sick. Before it would have - in fact it likely would have made me physically sick. Instead they told me that I've got a half an hour slot as guest speaker and I just said OK then that's fine, 20 minutes to talk and ten for questions.
It makes me wonder where I will be and who I will be in another years time.
