• All or nothing. Always good or bad?

    I’ve long admitted to being an ‘all or nothing’ person. Yep. Hello, my name is Deborah and I’m a black / white thinker. And it’s something I consider to be one of my biggest flaws. But, I’ve been recently challenged to consider whether the idea of ‘going big or going home’ could in fact sometimes be a good thing.

    I have long been a lover of words. I love reading, I love writing and (sad but true) I love talking.

    I’ve now read a couple of books – a novel and a biography – about people who’ve also been word-lovers who’ve developed dementia or alzheimers and have become lost for words.

    It is, however, my first EVER stay in hospital. Well since I was born. So, that would be 47-48 years ago. Which seems like yesterday. #not

    I was at an informal body corporate meeting for my apartment complex yesterday afternoon and we were discussing a report we’re planning to have done to forecast major expenditure over the next 10-15 years.

    And yes, that sentence bored me to death as well. What surprised me however, was the reaction of a few people around the table.

    The witching hour is – of course – the hours between midnight and 2am, when it’s said that witches, demons and ghosts are most likely to appear.

    My own witching hour is – naturally – quite different.
