Finally got around to a long delayed walk across the Millenium Bridge with my old chum Bob Kelsey today. I’m working down near his office at Metrocube so we had a brief lunch at the Tate Modern. He’s quite happy apart from contemplating a nervous breakdown from overwork and the fact that his book (in which I was character assassinated for the cause of writing) had recently been written up in the Times as he’d done a pastiche of Enron in it. Book sales are up, but it hasn’t done his Bank PR business start-up much good.
Things have been quite strange for me over the past few days. I was out for lunch on Tuesday with my dad when I got a phone call asking if I wanted to do a photo shoot… all very bizarre and I have to make a decision on whether I do that by tomorrow. Then, about ten minutes later, I got a call from someone else offering me five days of consultancy work as an Information Architect doing UI review! Not quite sure what to make of this, I’ve been big into “things happen for a reason” of late so I’m just going with the flow.
Sometimes, of course, the flow doesn’t want to go with you even when it seems to be heading the same direction… Go figure.
