Life Knocks by Craig Stone

Life Knocks

Craig Stone

Reading this is something like having buckets of glitter and water dumped unexpectedly over your head, and then watching the resultant mix flowing down river - startling, disorienting, beautiful, surreal, twirling in random side pools and tangents, but ultimately all heading to the same destination.

Extract

Wake up fellow co-workers! This does not give us our purpose but takes our purpose away.

You could be a polar bear if you want.

You just have to turn around and swim away from the iceberg because every dead end, if you turn around, is a way out.

Yours Sincerely
