You may be clear where you want your destination to be. You might think that you have a very clear pathway ahead of you, but then all of a sudden the direction doesn't appear quite so straightforward. The distant horizon has been replaced by the swirling fog in front of you. It now feels as if you are looking through a glass darkly. What was once certain has now become uncertain. The fixed points have begun to disappear, your champions are nowhere to be seen. It is not always that easy to get used to the fact that the tide has turned. Sometimes it is only by forcing yourself to be patient that you are able to recognise that a tide can ebb and flow.
