Have you ever looked back through the years of your life so far and looked for patterns? I don't mean lessons you haven't learned, or may keep learning over and over, I mean just random patterns that don't end up being so random after all.
There are a number in my life, and each one explored is the stuff memoirs are made of:
Kid from Surrey --- CMO of large US company
Medical family --- Lover of words, art and images
Conservative corporate America --- Humanist realist liberal
American --- Canadian
Lucky the black cat --- Lucas the black dog
No kids --- Partner has four
Writer --- Writer
Ok the last one may not make sense at first. The act of typing words on a keyboard is the same no matter what is being written, but the part of my brain used could not be more different during workday writing and my writing.
So, opposites. They offer lots to explore, relationships to think about, connections to create.
