The safest road to hell is the gradual one – the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.
C. S. Lewis
I just reached a milestone. After incorporating another round of feedback from my supervisors, I sent off my proposal for the various signatures it requires before being submitted to a review panel. Milestone number 1, six months in, tick!
It’s a small but important achievement; the culmination of 6 months of thinking and writing, summarised in 15 pages. I’m joining sober October, so I won’t celebrate with a wine, but I will get onto my tax return which has been patiently waiting for its time in the sun.
