Perspective.


Perspective.

.

My metaphorical and physical view for much of the last 7 days.

.

This time last week, I was brimming with excitement at the prospect of beginning a 6 month sabbatical with a trip to visit old friends in Montreal on route to the @oregontimbertrail.

.

Sadly - due to a spectacular series of (mostly self-inflicted) cock-ups ranging from forgetting to get a Canadian visa (who knew?) to UPS ‘losing’ my bike and camping kit - I’m still here and I’ve had one of the most emotionally difficult weeks I can remember.

.

In fact I’m sat on a (stationary) train en-route to Gatwick and it’s here that I’ve been handed some pretty solid ‘perspective’.

.

The reason that the train is stationary is that some poor soul is trying to jump from the platform into oncoming trains. I suffer from depression and anxiety and this week has been ‘hard’ but I cannot imagine how deep their unhappiness must run and I hope with all my heart that they can feel better.

.

Perspective indeed.
