We took a train this morning to Beecroft, where Andrea (Spencer-Cooke) now lives with her family, and then she drove us out into the countryside – where we took a walk alongside Berowra Waters and then ate a truly delicious al fresco that she had prepared on the dock at the nearby marina.
Andrea was a colleague and Muse during the time I was developing my thinking around the triple bottom line, in the early 1990s. She is now part of One Stone Advisors, a networked consultancy whose name refers back to a conference we did as a joint venture between SustainAbility and The Environment Foundation (which I chaired then – and still do, though it’s now The Foundation for Democracy & Sustainable Development) almost fifteen years ago, introducing the triple bottom line, and called ‘Three Birds, One Stone’.
Later in the day we headed back to pick up her children, Erin and Cameron, and then went home with them for tea. Elaine saw on of their water dragons in the garden, but I missed it – though I did see some of Andrea’s photos on her Mac. Impressed that they can stay underwater for 90 minutes – but was even more impressed by Erin’s impromptu headgear that accompanied us to the station when the time came to leave.
