Some random musings
Computer scientists talk of an "insertion sort", a method of sorting things where you insert each item in its proper place in a list. When filing, I use a variant called a "deletion sort" which involves looking at each piece of paper, deciding I don't care about it, and throwing it away. Very simple. Now if I could only find that bank statement . . .
When I was a kid, I always thought there would be a time when I would finally feel grown-up. As the years passed, I waited for that "grown-up" feeling of wisdom and understanding to arrive. Eventually I started to suspect that such a feeling will never arrive - that there would be no big change from childhood to adulthood. Since that realisation, I've felt much more grown up.
