Last night I was overwhelmed, this morning I cried in the shower, then I wrote these words.
We need a New Story
Today I am shocked by the cataclysmic change that has occurred during my sleep as I wake in Los Angeles.
I see a country who outside of London is not happy with the way things were.
I see fear from my middle class friends who seemed, like me, quite unaware of those millions that felt differently in different generations and geographies around the country.
And in this narrative vacuum that our decision has created
I can see an opportunity.
An opportunity for a government that will engage those who voted for an unknown adventure.
An opportunity, with a blank canvas to reconsider our global position and relationships.
An opportunity to spring two steps forwards from what may seem like one big rock back.
A space has been created
It will either be filled with isolation, division and hostility
Or it will be filled with the imagination of a new story
A global story.
A new way of relating to the countries of the world,
A new way of inspiring our common wealth & wisdom
A new way of using our tools to create connection
We need mutual deal makers and lots of them
There is plenty of work to be done
We cannot let the rock back be our generations legacy
We must start.
We must imagine a new story
