A brief look at where we HAVE been. Where we ARE going, is on the panel to the right.

Life can not be summarized in paragraph headings.

A huge amount of work, life, laughter, creativity, traffic jams, exploration, travel, meetings, greetings, time, smiles, effort, inventing, flights, packing, unpacking, music, sights, sounds, corners to go round, doors to open, learning, thoroughly gorgeous new people, smiling faces, enjoyment, sharing of ideas, and time off…

This is not exhaustive list of our engagements, but it gives a hint of some of the places we have been lucky enough to be asked to spend time with folk.

There are gaps. They have been filled with a huge amount of work, life, laughter, creativity, traffic jams, exploration, travel, meetings, greetings, time, smiles, effort, inventing, flights, packing, hotels, unpacking, music, sights, sounds, corners to go round, doors to open, learning, thoroughly gorgeous new people, smiling faces, enjoyment, sharing of ideas, …and SO much more. Many colours of magic infact.

These are just SOME  of our events, remember…

For those people who think that it is all about playing computer games, I have to say you could not be any more wrong. Continue Reading
