Scarecrow: Pardon me, this way is a very nice way.
Dorothy: Who said that? [Toto barks at scarecrow]
Dorothy: Don’t be silly, Toto. Scarecrows don’t talk.
Scarecrow: [points other way] It’s pleasant down that way, too.
Dorothy: That’s funny. Wasn’t he pointing the other way?
Scarecrow: [points both ways] Of course, some people do go both ways.

You wouldn’t recognise me. No really, I’m not stressing, no tears and I haven’t even felt like stabbing anyone in the eye with my pencil recently. This is the new confident, chilled out Dorothy.I’ve been feeling like this for a whole 2 days now, oh yes, it’s long term.

The reason? People…. great aren’t they? It won’t surprise you to hear that I have been chatting to/arguing with/boring anyone who would stand still long enough about my project and they have been delighting me (unless they were just humouring me, darn hadn’t thought of that). The positivism and forward thinking is heartening. The thing that is puzzling me now is, if so many of us want change and have a vague agreement on what that should be why aren’t we making it happen? Obviously I ask this of my rather long suffering colleagues and so far have had the answers that “Munchkin Land just isn’t ready” (not sure what that means) and “the cause needs a champion” that means, we need to play the game and get a VP to sponsor it in a loud way.

Is it me, or has someone hung a shiny disco ball at the end of the tunnel? There are little spots of light everywhere.
