Half a Hexagon
shaping simple ideas in a complex world
Monday 14 June 2021
Love really does make the world go round. But love hurts. Last week my very special friend Jessica Morris - pictured here in a loving embrace with Joe Biden as they discussed the Gliobastoma which took his son Beau's life herself died of the disease. The New York Times obituary of her is here.
Jessica embodied the essence of Hexagon Thinking and I've donated all UK/US royalties from The Simplicity Principle for the next year - the book was dedicated to her - to OurBrainBank as a result. She got things done. She connected emotionally. She kept it real. She reached out and made networks. She had heart and soul and purpose.
The Teeming Brain
I re-read John Keats' When I have Fears in memory of Jessica this week and I reproduce it in full because it's so beautiful. I think we all recognise the fear that we will cease to be before our time. I'm finding myself oddly galvanised as my book deadline gallops closer to do what Jessica did and keep going, keep going, keep going.
