Greats and GOATs
There are giants who loom large for us all: the Greats who laid the foundations and those who shook them – men and women who broke through and shaped the world.
In a sense, who made us.
There’s no need to name them – we know who many of them are, and we learn more about them as we go. And besides, there are too many to name and most are far away.
And there are the smaller giants: smaller people who stand tall in our eyes because they stood close. They gave us a boost, helped us see, carried us before we could walk or when we couldn’t walk any further. I won’t name these because I can’t – or rather, I can only name some of my own.

Happy New Year – have a giant 2019.
** You could start by asking:
- Where am I standing?
- Who’s standing with me?
- Which way is up for them?
- How can I give them a leg-up?
