You build up a life that rolls along like a contented coal train
then, without you noticing, after going along in a straight line
for decades, a fork appears . . .
cracking your self confidence. How to tackle what you
least expected? Your ordered, if not orderly existence, is turned
on its head. It creeps up on you for years, you try to close your
eyes . . . till one day you can not look past it any more. You have
to face the unpleasant truth and accept the unremitting changes
in the very fabric of your life.
Often when we are at our lowest, life springs another lesson on us
and we just have to cope.
