Spike certainly had the situation summed up well even if he did pinch the first three lines from the Sound of Music. He and I share a common view of the modern world in which we find ourselves. Multi-tasking and seamless communication fill in most of the gaps that otherwise would have been ‘wasted’ on relaxation. Rest is apparently only for the departed. Another year has vanished in the rear-view mirror of life and the new one is upon us with its own unique challenges. Let’s hope that the tragic circumstances of 2009 will never be repeated.
