All of my reactions are an entirely rational response to a completely crazy world

Hello, welcome to my crazy disorganized world, spend as long as  you like. Think of this I guess as a comfy armchair for your mind, squirm about, toss the cushions onto the floor, join an astonishing 120000 visitors, across now some five years, who came, and who stayed a while.

Pull up your feet and make yourself at home, 'Me Casa su Casa'.... Oh and if you leave with even an iota more than you arrived with, then  I think we are both growing from this moment of union..... Much more inside including information about four books in print, including the brand new 'Wise Hermione' the recently published 'parable of responsibility' commentators have observed as 'a tale for our times'

 

May the universe treat you well

 

Warmly David

And the architect spoke, and he said.

‘How can I be the victim of something that I so carefully designed?’

Reality check -

 

A FRIEND RECENTLY SENT ME THIS POWERFUL MESSAGE:

 

'And the day came when the risk it took to remain tightly clenched in a bud became more painful than the risk that it took to blossom'

 

I ALSO DISCOVERED THIS QUOTE ATTRIBUTED VAGUELY TO HENRY FORD WHICH I RATHER ENJOYED

 

'If I asked people what they wanted when I started out they would have said faster horses'

 

AND LASTLY MY THANKS TO GEORGE ORWELL

 

'It is important to examine yourself and sort out your real motives. After all we can make ourselves happy or we can make ourselves miserable, the amount of work involved is the same'
