Nigel Morris-Cotterill's blog

Sitting at home doing all kinds of things - including researching and writing both "Sun Tzu and the Art of Litigation" and "How does that make you feel" as well as other work that kept me locked to my desktop for, in total more than a year, I've just been re-introduced to the delights of long distance travel. I was looking forward to it: I used to spend as much as 200 nights a year away from home, often sleeping on a plane between leaving a meeting at the end of one day and just getting to the next early in the morning.
