Making things starts with breaking things.


Thanks for sharing your overnight experiences. I go through similar mental grills a number of times too. Glad to learn there is someone somewhere on the planet who offers me consolation that I am not being alone.

In fact, the hangover of last night's celebrations and sharing of a thanking dinner was so much on my mind this morning, in spite of an early morning 3 km walk, that it lead to a search for some solution to beat the hangover and get on with today's mounting task with a glaring deadline of 30 April.

And I found you.

And thanks again for putting me back on tracks by making this article available at just the right time.
