Yesterday I went to a castle owned by Sir Jack. He's 85, has 3 mad golden retrievers is as bright as a button and needs ideas on how to preserve his 'pad'. He is future planning and seeking innovation and knows that means change. I talked to him about fashion and music, he got everything. My skull scarf didn't phase him. I sat in the drawing room, the sun spilling in through the windows, mist rising over a loch with swans and a dreamy boathouse you can stay in. I wasn't happy for him, I was happy for me. This is life, not illness. This was my working day, valued and appreciated. Where was Parkinson's, nowhere. Don't write yourself off, ever. You have so much to contribute, so much to share. Knowledge, insight, information is a legacy we can all give. I gave up working a normal job a long time ago, it would be impossible to function effectively and I am fearful of being a weak link. I have a job now that I designed to work the way I work and that is good enough for the people who hire me. It may not be easy but it is possible. Never give up. 2014 holds some magic for us all. Believe in yourself. Kindest C
