Overheard in the office ….

Oh, yeah … Hook. That’s the one with Robin Williams in it, right? Peter Pan? At Christmas? Well, whatever, it’s snowing, right? Hang on [clicking of keyboard keys – presumably looking up the movie on IMDB]. Oh. Wait. No … I don’t know if I saw that one in the theatre. It came out in 1991. I was five.

Oh snap. And that’s the first time in my whole life I’ve ever felt old at the office. I’m not going to tell you what I was doing in 1991, but I was definitely seeing movies in the theatre. All by myself. Possibly even on a date.


Like it or not, we either add to the darkness of indifference and out-and-out evil which surrounds us or we light a candle to see by.
