A momentary lapse of reason

Some surprises hit you. And once the initial shock has passed, and the reality of it sinks in some more, then that completely floors you. The reality that is, it knocks the wind out of you, or does whatever else it is that it has to, to leave you gasping for air.Most days you can sidestep the blows. Unfortunately the ones that don't miss tend to be the worst ones. Mainly 'cos they land too close to home. Too close to the bits of your life that are not so easy to gloss over once you get to thinking about them. I suppose once you are at that point, it might be worth while to think it through. So far as circumstances allow that is.

Maybe it is best to let go. Holding on too hard never really helps... no?
