Combining aspects of me – personal, consulting and start-up/entrepreneur…
Far other worlds… is about the relationship my life and work has with time, geography, human existence and the potential for making a difference, creating and working towards a better version of what ever the context.
This was an inspiration to get started – A partial and fitting quote from The Garden by Andrew Marvell …..
Meanwhile the mind, from pleasures less,
Withdraws into its happiness:
The mind, that ocean where each kind
Does straight its own resemblance find,
Yet it creates, transcending these,
Far other worlds, and other seas,
Annihilating all that's made
To a green thought in a green shade.
