27th June: Mike Brearley, in conversation with Ed Smith: On Form? Or Off?
What is being ‘on Form’? How does it relate to being ‘in the zone’? Are these states in the laps of the gods, a matter of which side of the bed we got out of that morning? Or is there anything we can do to make their arrival more likely? From time to time we all take wrong turnings on our journeys. Though we miss the safety of the already known, this is not all bad. Form and change often grow from loss and difficulty. Losing our way is an opportunity for serendipity.
