Note: I had an entirely different quote lined up & ready to press the publish button for Wednesday of this week, but an ambulance ride and 6 days in the cardiology ward of the  local hospital suggested a re-think.   All fine now, just a few days of R & R and a slower- than-usual pace of life in the future.

How lucky I am to be blessed with a simple life and minimal expectations.

Luckily, it rained while I was absent from home, so only a couple of casualties in the Balcony Garden.
