A Snakelet Post

I spent the last weekend in the wilderness, on a mountain, doing exercise. On the first day I came across a tiny snakelet, quickly slithering across my path. I take that as a good sign. We are tiny snakelets but we are growing and our fangs are developing!

Snakes are a good metaphor for the change of the seasons here and for the clarity which is the characteristic of autumn. Also for the skills we need in the political game: Agility, venom and the ability to use obstacles to advance.
