I live off the grid – literally and metaphorically.
Our remote, hilltop house is solar powered, so we are off the electricity grid. And the small Spanish town where it is located is well off the grid of creative business thinking.
This suits me. It gives me a different view (see my talk at the Do Lectures). It means that wherever I am, I am always out on an edge.
The picture above shows this happening for real. I was out for a walk in the first snow, just a couple of miles from my house, when Gary called. From Disneyland. Where he was working with the Disney executives. Not much of a contrast then.
