Steppin’ In A Slide Zone!

For all of us who have experienced awe and wonder and then those days where we tread water…

The Moody Blues – Still the best band I have ever seen live…

STEPPIN’ IN A SLIDE ZONE (John Lodge) The Moody Blues

I took a ride in a limousine, I took a road I’d never been. I met a stranger by the way, His coat was torn but his eyes were clear.

Standing in a slide zone, Steppin’ in a slide zone.

He told me where a river flows, He showed me how the apple grows. He told me of a magic stream, His face was worn but his eyes were clear.

Standing in a slide zone, I could be steppin’ in a slide zone. Standing in a slide zone, I could be steppin’ through a time zone.

He went to find a shooting star, Around the bend, that’s where they are. I went along just for the ride, Suddenly I began to slide.

Standing in a slide zone, I could be steppin’ through a time zone.

The air raced by there was no sound, We drifted high above the ground. And then he said you know this place, And then a smile lit up his face.

Standing in a slide zone, I could be steppin’ in a slide zone. Standing in a slide zone, I could be steppin’ through a time zone.

I turned my head and I looked below, Slide zone… And there was something there I know. Suddenly I began to fall, I looked around and tried to call.

Standing in a slide zone, He had me steppin’ in a time zone. Standing in a slide zone, Falling through a time zone.

Help me please, I thought I said, Then something happened in my head. Music came from all around, And I knew what I had found.

Standing in a slide zone, Falling through a time zone. Steppin’ in a slide zone, He had me falling through a time zone. Slide zone, slide zone, Slide zone, time zone.

Hitting the Road For Some Time Out

For the next four days, we are heading up the coast to visit some of our favourite places. Apart from a bit of an airing ourselves, we are taking my mum along too.

We are fortunate to be in a such a position, but it has been due to some serious and very hard work by the governments here and everyone (well almost – you cant help stupid) getting in behind what has to be done.

There has been true leadership (this is the framework, adapt it to suit your particular situation), unity (it’s sad to see in other parts of the world this is lacking) and a serious test regime followed by ongoing, trustful information.

So, it is back to the Pinnacles:
