I'm being a bit 'pro-active' and setting plans in place for some world cookery touring/teaching in 2006. I've starting correspondence with my contacts in Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town, Italy, Lithuania, Latvia, Russia, Croatia, Finland and Estonia, letting them know that I'm available to come and set up cookery workshops.
After planting all the idea seeds I will see which ones sprout into real events. So far there is some positive response. Next comes the painstaking assembly of an itinerary, loads of 'back-and-forth-ing' via letter, and vast amounts of fine-tuning.
I enjoy the challenge of a world-tour. Maybe it's my Capricorn Dragon nature. Anyway, from past experience I know that there is just time separating the conception and the actual birth of the ideas into real tangible events.
In the background to my vigorous planning, I always keep firmly fixed in my mind that whilst 'man is the architect of his own fortune', I also must never forget that, 'man proposes, God disposes', and the interesting axiom, 'first deserve then desire'. With all these ideas of universal balance firmly embraced, I will proceed forward, and leave the final results in the hands of the Supreme Planmaker.
