In the middle of 2006 I resigned my job as an academic at a world “top ten” university. I gave six months notice so that I could hand over my responsibilities in a well controlled and managed way. At the end of November my flat sale went through and I moved from Brixton to this rented accomodation in the country. I went from scheduled to the nearest five minutes to virtually nothing, nada, zip. I was unemployed and had only a few small pieces of consultancy work lined up.
You can see my mat where I sat come rain or shine to finish off my life recapitualtion.
I sat and I sat.
I had stopped the world,the hectic and crazy one which I once was a part of.
