seeds // from behind a desk

I’m not quite sure when author John Le Carre would have said these words of wisdom.

He is now in his 80s and still writing novels, has a Twitter presence and an official Facebook fan group but says “I hate the telephone. I can’t type. I ply my trade by hand. I live on a Cornish cliff and hate cities”.

I find a touch of irony in his words, particularly for me as I spend much of my days at a desk and unlike Le Carre, don’t have my years as a spy to draw on.

But what resonated with me in these words is how easily it could be updated to be “From behind a keyboard …”

Take from it what you will ~ I think it has many interpretations ~ but it’s also a good reminder to get out from behind the desk/keyboard occasionally.
