May our paths cross again soon. Thursday May 9, 2013

Do you do what's expected of you, or are you true to yourself? I suspect that for most of us the truth lies somewhere between these two extremes. It's not easy to progress through life without making the odd compromise.

I say this because as you probably know, today's my last day at Moodscope. Time to clear my desk, pack a metaphorical cardboard box, and set off into the sunset.

As I made plans to do so, I thought long and hard about what to say to you today, and wondered just what would be expected from me. In the end I've let my heart rule my head.

I leave with a complicated mix of thoughts.

Perhaps unsurprisingly I'm rather sad that despite all my efforts over the past five years, in the end it was largely a mundane lack of money that made it impossible for me to continue with Moodscope.

Despite this, I'm excited about the adventures to come (on which I'd love you to accompany me - so if you haven't yet done so, please register your details below so I can keep in touch - this is your final reminder):

I'm really quite proud of what Moodscope has already achieved. What began as twenty handmade playing cards in my pocket has grown to help many thousands; it has gained clinical recognition; it has been featured in the news media around the world; it's been recognised by generous public funders.

I'm happy to wish Caroline and Adrian success in continuing to grow Moodscope, and thank them for their friendship over the years.

Most of all, though, I'm bowled over (and a bit emotional it has to be said) by the raw intensity of the support and affection I've felt from Moodscopers. When I started the project in 2007 I genuinely had no idea it would be like this. If you could run a business on love, Moodscope would be one of the planet's best-funded organisations.

So for all this, thank you. Thank you so much. Please let's keep in touch.

For now, though, it's goodbye from me, and it'll be hello from The Moodscope Team tomorrow. Treat them kindly.

As it's likely that Moodscopers will want to comment on this, and also highly probable that our email In-Boxes will be pretty busy, I'll be eternally grateful if thoughts, reflections and questions could be directed to our Blogspot:
