This week blessed me with a client visit to Glasgow, which gave me great opportunity to meet wonderful people and visit a good friend from Oxford. I have had a rather quiet time recently so travelling to this magnificent city was a pleasure, despite the gloomy, almost romantic views of Scottish landscapes. Glasgow itself welcomed me with extremely kind and warm people (is it just me, or is it really worth working in various places to taste a bit of local reality?), whose interest in social media, openness but also honest feedback gave me great boost of inspiration for the rest of the week and probably more days to come;) All this followed by meeting a friend, spending all evening talking – yes, simply talking about things that matter to both us and discovering how much we have in common and how much we can learn from each other- until we get so tired we can hardly think (this bit applies to me, of course!). Chilly, bright morning on the way back to the station with a short visit to the Glasgow School of Art gave me the opportunity to study more the architect and great designer, Mackintosh, whose roses are flowering on my coffee table since my first farewell present received in the UK. All this finalised by sunny, seriously dreamy hills on the way back was simply extraordinary!
Thank you to everyone who made this trip so rewarding!
