Perfect Storm


I have always found it such a romantic expression

Perfect Storm

But when it finally hits you, it loses all romance.

This last month I have been buffeted by the cruel wind of business events almost out of my control. I have suffered the chill of much that has always been close becoming cold. I have felt threatened by the edgy frailty of my own body, once so reliable.

And finally I have been stung by the cruel, hard rain of careless rejection.

I have realised the nature of my Perfect Storm.

It is that I am suddenly becoming old.
