It promises to be wall to wall rain this weekend so please pack accordingly!

Alasdair - our taxi ride will be in Ardrossan from 1900 - I've said we'll aim to leave no later than 1930. I can bring something to eat when we get to the boat but suggest that we might want to have eaten something beforehand- thoughts?

John - bring wellies, it's a dinghy ride to the boat when we get there.

Friday might be a big day - leaving the lagoon at 1000 and weather permitting arriving Campbeltown midnight ish. Tom's going to do some supper.

Saturday aiming for Tarbert for a night on the tiles and back to Ardrossan on Sunday in time for tea and medals.

thoroughly looking forward to it all.

I'll bring food.

Meditative

Cutting dovetail draws for our kitchen. The stage is set on my workbench. Hours go by marking and cutting these old fashioned draws. The dovetail saw needed sharpening before i started. They take a long time but they will last my lifetime and beyond. Craftsmanship future proofing our kitchen storage needs. The value of this meditative repetitive process gives my mind time to focus and relax deeply from life's distractions. My creative thinking goes into overdrive in this quiet time in the background new thoughts pop up for the next project, sketch book to hand. Some times its hard to explain the value of this seemingly mindless activity, my hands carry out this work almost autonomously while my imagination drifts into a turbo charged creative overdrive. My good friend in science says this is called flow by some famous mind scientist i forget the name of.
