Life is unexpected

Someone recently asked how I would describe life.  Unexpected was the only thing that I could come up with. We live life with preconceived ideas as to how things will turn out, but so often it doesn’t turn out the way we expect it to. When I was 20 I wondered where I would be […]

Damned Wisdom

I am 38 years old and until about 4  weeks ago had never experienced tooth ache.  Rather lucky. When the pain started, I was hoping to be able to blame it on my sinuses which have caused me endless grief because I would rather go through a whole sinus surgery again than sit in a […]
