Oppenheimer

I'm taking a break from my series of posts on the new culture scan, in part because I need to do some more work on the documentation over the next few days and a couple of long haul flights will allow me reflective time to complete that task. The schedule is pretty fraught with my having arriived in Copenhagen earlier today to deliver a workshop, followed by a presentation Thursday then a flight to New Zealand with a 12 hours stop over in Singapore before returning via Los Angeles the following weekend in the first Round the World...

Cold & bright (sic)

By Dave Snowden  ·  February 2, 2015  ·  Great places

It was a bright cold day this morning and I had to take the backroad out of the village.  The bridge that connects us to the main road is being remade or refurbished and the whole process is planned to take eight to nine weeks.   I was rewarded with a glorious sunrise in the clear cold air.   That put me into a reflective mode.   I love walking at this time of the year as the sky is clear, the air crisp and there is always a sense of danger.  I got some of the greatest pictures of my life recently on such a walk.  You don't want to...

Of a journey or two

Given a weekend in Brighton anything involving mountains is not really possible but the Downs and the Seven Sisters are all available.  So given permission for one day I choose to target a long walk combing the two starting routes for the South Downs Way (SDW).   I've come backwards and forwards on aspects of this route over the years.   I planned the first stage of the SDW back in January 2012 from Eastbourne to Alfriston.  At the time I was just getting back into walking with the Kennet & Avon Canal and the Thames Walk.  However...

It's odd how the past can come back and give you more depth or insight.  I discovered yesterday that we had a family bible, something that turned out to be unknown to most of the family.   My daughter brought it back from my sister's house and she had it from my mother who must have had it from either my Nain (grandmother) or grandfather but we will never know that.   Most probably the former as the latter died before she completed her degree but you never know as they were very close.   An interesting story there in that she won a...

The last 3000er

By Dave Snowden  ·  September 17, 2014  ·  Walks & Bike rides, Great places

Up to North Wales today for a series of meetings on SenseMaker® development and the start of an exciting new project on governance of which more in a few weeks time.   Now my view at the moment is that if I have a meeting in Bangor I am going to find times for the hills and today was no exception.  I got away later than expected and wasted time in Betwys trying to find a holster for the new camera without success.  In consequence I got to the Ogwen Valley after lunch and without the means to safely carry the new camera, so I...
