Webster's Dictionary states the definition of anticipation as 1. A feeling of excitement that something is about to happen and, 2. The act of preparing for something. Carly Simon says "anticipation is making her wait". I say, anticipation becomes reality Tuesday morning, the 15th of October.
This feeling of excitement something is going to happen has been a long time coming. It began in the middle of a sleepless night in 2008 when the only light in my room came from the flickering of the television. In awe I watched a program repeated from its original airing in 2006 of a doctor making discoveries in the world of altered states of consciousness. Not wanting to break the spell I was under, as if any sudden movements or introduction of increased light would arouse me from some dream, I reached to open a nightstand drawer and fumbled to find a pen. With pen firmly in hand and finding no pad to write on, I grabbed a Kleenex box, turned it upside down and began to write as the credits rolled.
Thousands of Internet searches, hundreds of emails and phone calls, dozens of case studies, a few well placed introductions and 5 years time have led to this moment.
9am tomorrow morning the journey begun in 2008 continues-but this time rather than on the outskirts-through the front door.
"We can never know about the days to come" - but..., Life as you know it CAN change in a moment - or, over the course of 5 years. Thing is you'll never know unless you try.......Anticipation is making me wait....
