Back to the Future. Enjoy Today.

Back to the Future day

It’ll Be Alright.

pop quiz: the lyric above is from what song and artist? clue: super monsters with a sprinkling of stardust.

Back in 1985, on back to the future day, I was a fresh-faced graduate starting out in a career in chemicals; who could have predicted the alternate reality that is today?!

In 1985, I

  • had never stood on a pair of skis.
  • hadn’t met most of the people who today I call friends.
  • was living and working my first proper job near Manchester.
  • never gave a thought to what my world would look like in 2015.

In 2015:

  • I love skiing and have booked a ski touring course with the AACUK in Ischgl this coming season.
  • A series of events, involving brothers and houses, mean I need friends more than ever; has anyone got a spare bed?!
  • am attempting to describe my status as semi-retired.
  • I don’t want to think about what my world will look like in 2045.

21st October 2015 is Back to the Future day; enjoy looking back, but enjoy today more. …and if all else fails, you could always ski backwards.

pop trivia: “It’ll be alright” is from ‘Up the Hill Backwards’ from David Bowie‘s 1980 album, Scary Monsters.
