Running is my escape. It’s easier than cycling in that you don’t need to concentrate on the road. Clears my head, sorts my world. I’ve run through all the big stuff, life and game changers. Running gives me time out in the face of challenge and it rewards me with unexpected euphoric bursts when I least expect it - a right good pal. But recently I’ve been neglecting my pal.
Work’s busy at the moment with the seasonal spike and I need clarity of thought for focus and process. Head space and energy to keep on top of the Christmas rush whilst mentally preparing for the new season launches in January. We're producing so more in-house now too, which provides an exciting platform of design and experimentation for growth and learning.
So the kick are back on and I’m running again, visiting places of interest in and around Glasgow. Of interest to me I should add. Buildings and businesses, hills and moors, in use and abandoned, sometimes derelict and at risk and sometimes in the middle of nowhere. It’s a nice wee incentive, particularly as I spend increasingly more time in the workshop and this escape fuels the engine.
As always, I’m shooting on the go and documenting what I see on my travels that might float your boat - keep yer eyes peeled for these as you never know where they might turn up . . . . .
