Have a Break

It seems that there is finally light at the end of a very dark and long tunnel.  The resurgence of nature with spring brings with it the return of some welcome normality.

I also remember thinking that the “lack of energy and always tired “phenomenon only happened to “old” people. By the time I was thirty I realised that I was THAT old person.
