I was about to start three new jobs as I departed from the unique/special Romford YMCA Community

Tuesday 2 April 2003.
Yes, I left the Romford YMCA community last night.

18 Years in this special community of hundreds of humans.
Gut wrenching to leave.
Yet I knew it was time to respond to the pull - to become a freelance worker at home & abroad.
The last car boot load of files and desk objects etc were loaded with the help of 
Richard, Jacky, Val with Mr Singh in support, 
and I got away by about 9.30pm. 
Feel I have been so busy that I have not had major feelings about going in these latter days. 
Maybe it will run and catch me up in the next four days which I have taken as holiday before I start my three new jobs on Monday.

The last 4 days I have been in Prague with the programme planning group regarding the European YMCA festival (3-9 August) for 8000 YMCA teens. 
It was a working week-end and , never having been to Prague, I feel I need to go and see and enjoy proper!. 
I was asked to go because of my big gig experience, and of course, my involvement with the Greenbelt Festival. 
So the last few days, since the big farewell, have been hectic.
It was great beyond words to get a text from the main man Charlie the creator of this web site. 
He said that this new creation website was now launched. 
At the best opportunity in Prague, I was encouraged by friends Jason and Oyvin as we 
grabbed the first ever look at my new website = www.pipwilson.com - Hey hey. 

It happened with a big help from the funky receptionist at our Prague hotel www.arthotel.cz  -
we jumped with joy seeing the first shot of art on my website screen and LOVED IT !!. 

This hotel is recommended if you like style and excellent standards. 
Anyway, this is the first blog of many which you can catch almost daily if you place me in your 'favourites' list. -
