IMG_0414I’ve written before about the flow of work and the seasons, and how my energy waxes and wanes according to the time of the year. This, and the ¬†different time zones inhabited by my friends and colleagues, makes for some interesting connectedness – or not!

So I am very much looking forward to the next few weeks. A road trip holiday followed by my favourite conference for learning, being challenged, inspiration, lots of laughs and reconnecting with some great mates – the Applied Improvisation Conference in Portland, Oregon.

It’s this combo of ¬†time-out and challenge, new experiences and familiarity, awe-inspiring nature and living simply, day-by-day with no plans, no itineraries, no-where in particular to be for three whole weeks, that best recharges my batteries. Top this off with a dose of improv and you have one happy Viv.

Things might be a bit quiet around here – or maybe not.
