Writing this text has been a hugely beneficial journey for me, and I've only just reached the starting point! But it's a starting point I fully understand now and, as such, feel I can take in absolutely any direction. I'm not worried about that direction. I'm don't feel I have to know where Treading Air will end up, because I simply believe that from the right starting point, you will always travel to somewhere better.
Oh yes indeed. Hand-in-hand with Madani, Michael and Rob, I know we can move this story on to an even better place... a brilliant place... an amazing place! We are Dorothy, Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow on our very own yellow brick road. The sky is blue, the dreams will come true and the great wizard Barry Reckord shall look down from his Oz and be proud.
It's times like this, when I'm able to step back from the work itself, that I appreciate all over again the privileged position I'm in to be doing this work, under these very fine auspices, in the first place.
Thank you, to everyone who put me here. From the bottom of my hot-air-balloon heart.
