Wednesday: I'm going to Luxemburg tomorrow for a few days - Luxemburg radio, showcase in a cafe and a client party in town... never been to Luxemburg before. Very exciting.

Where is it I'm going? What is it I'm for?
What is it I’ll find when I walk outside my door?
Bilbo found adventures with some musketeer dwarves,
But he had to ride a pony. He was too small for a horse.

Me, I’m going to Luxemburg to share myself anew
With a bunch of folk that I have never met or spoken to.
My hope, my expectation, is that I will shine a light,
Like a candle in the window that is always burning bright.

But expectation leads to disappointment, don’t you know?
So now I must endeavour to surrender to the flow;
The flow of life. Wherever it may lead, I cannot say.
Offer up my expectations? Why should I? No way!

But quietly I know that if I seek something specific,
The outcome will be disappointment; painful and horrific.
It’s not like I’m Obama with another 4 year plan,
“So surrender your agenda. You will blossom then, young man.”

Who said that!?
