The photograph helps.

Beanbags.

The beanbags at The Do Lectures are not very comfortable.

They’re too long.

They’re filled with unknown stuff that just doesn’t support you.

It moves somewhere else!

So that you are quite literally brought down to earth.

Landing with a firm ‘bump’ on your arse.

On the cold, hard floor.

So when I sat there one morning.

Eating my cereal.

Alone.

I felt, well, lonely.

It seems to me that those Do Lectures people really haven’t thought this through.

Rona

The evening before.

I sat on the same beanbag.

Chatting to Rona about life.

The beanbags at The Do Lectures are really comfortable.

They’re perfect for two.

They’re filled with unknown stuff that supports you beautifully.

Because one person balances the other.

You raise each other up.

You float.

Above the cold, hard floor.

So that when you sit there with gin and tonic.

Together.

I feels lovely.

Life.

When Rona and I chatted, we chatted about life.

About how life can be very uncomfortable.

And feel too long.

Filled with unknown stuff and people that just don’t support you.

They move somewhere else!

So that you are quite literally brought down to earth.

Landing with a firm ‘bump’ on your arse.

On the cold, hard floor.

Feeling, well, lonely.

Life can be uncomfortable.

Another Life.

After a little more gin, we chatted about life some more.

About the fact that life can also be really comfortable.

Perfect for two.

Filled with unknown stuff but the other person supports you beautifully.

Because one person balances the other.

You raise each other up.

You float.

Above the cold, hard floor.

So that when you sit there with gin and tonic.

Together.

I feels lovely.

The beanbags at The Do Lectures.

They really are a very comfortable place to be.

      Shaughn – you are a great chap to have around.

      I just wanted you to know.

      Thank you.

      Happy Friday.

  1. Blown away by this piece Michael. Really captured just part of the essence of the 4 days at the farm. The past few days at home have been really insightful as my brain is processing all that we experienced. Glad we can maintain these connections to ease us into the way ahead… xx
