The Lovely Ian Orford

Many many moons ago when I was just a slip of a girl I worked with a chap called Ian Orford. He was funny and clever and shiny bright. Working with him was fun. Today I found him on Facebook, through a friend and went to look at his profile page. He lives in America now and there's a video of his house and his dog and his wife. He seems genuinely happy and I'm truly thrilled for him. I wonder where all the years went (nearly 20) and then when I think about it I realised that I have all the same fears and all the same worries about life in general that I had when I knew him. That made me very sad, and I cried...a lot :(

  1. Oh Tracy! What a touching post, I just want you to know that I also have all the same fears that I had back then as well.

    One thing that Denise has taught me is 'face the fear' and do it anyway. It seems to work.

    Well it has taken us on some fairly hairy adventures but we always seem to get through by the skin of our teeth.

    And the great thing is we get through way beyond that most times.

    Lots of love,

    Ian
