“Remember to breathe. It is after all, the secret of life.”

says Gregory Maguire, revisionist reteller of children's stories.


Today I've been Out There Doing Stuff. Good stuff that will make a difference to lots of people. Other stuff that will make a difference to Alfie and Poppy, like arranging for their saddles to be refurbished...

One appointment after another appointment since 7 a.m. with no break in between.

I've just arrived home completely out of breath as though I've been racing with Usain Bolt.

(I'm in Lane One, just out of the picture)

My to do list was long.

Nowhere on it did I write 'remember to breathe.'

So I forgot.

Remaining alive is quite important if you want to change the world.
