Sometimes Life can be downright miserable.
For a number of reasons, Tense Towers isn't a whole bundle of joy at the mo, but we will eventually come out of the other side of this dark cloud and find ourselves older and wiser.
Ok, just older then.
However, in recent days, on two separate occasions, I have felt very privileged to share in the roller coaster ride of others' lives. Or perhaps it was just my emotions that were sent on the roller coaster ride? See what you think.
One of Our Lass' Facebook friends put up a link to this Youtube film about a baby being bathed. It is a wondrous and tranquil experience, and if that is your only reaction then I take my hat off to you. Because watching it as a parent, it also scared the sh*t out of me, so that my adrenalin levels were probably the polar opposite of the wee bairn's. Roller coaster, indeed.
The other example was whilst reading Inspector Gadget's Police Inspector Blog. This particular post is a story which cries out for a "to be continued..." follow up, but either way, it brought a smile to my face and made me glad to be able to share the planet with such decent folk.
