I don’t write this blog too much any more because I now realistically assess the situation, especially including certain individuals who wish me harm. Like I don’t know?
Nevertheless, the distillery in Oman is working well and producing excellent oil, (myrrh too,) and the production is regular. Because of the complete arbitrariness of the rules surrounding shipping from Oman, we felt it would be better to ship our oil in bulk to the US, and then to clients from our New York offices and so that’s what we are doing. It's way better! Less shipments from Oman means less headaches for everyone, including those lovely guys at OmanPost.
We’ve got a steadily growing product line from our essential oils now, cosmetic, culinary, and, of course, simply aromatic. We’ve got some new and cool clients. It’s taken a long, long time to get here, and I am very proud of these two companies, and our wonderful staff, in particular Tom, who does the work of ten men.
We’ve got a few things we’re working on now, including a new look for the American company, and some new projects you can’t imagine!
Remember that things don’t always look like you thought they would, and maybe that’s better. It’s a fact anyway. You might have a goal and reach it, or you might reach it by a different path than you anticipated. You might not reach it all, but reach something else.
The important thing is to get up once you’ve been kicked. Bleed away if you like, spit out some teeth or let go of an organ, and do whatever you need to, but ultimately, if you’re still alive, you’re still in the game. So why not make the most of it? You might just win.
