Out walking this evening, our lad turned to me and said, “What’s happened to you? You used to be such a calm man. Suddenly you’re… you’re so… cross… angry!”

“Am I?” I asked, surprised.

“Yes, for like the past month.”


“I admit,” he said, “our behaviour isn’t helping.”

“Do you think?”

“But that’s not an excuse. You’ve changed suddenly.”

“Hmm,” I shrug. It’s as if I exist in isolation, unaffected by the buffeting forces all around me. “I don’t know, lad,” I muttered, sauntering on in silence.
