I am also trying to make sense of all of this information overload... in a concise sort of way... which is proving difficult... as one idea trigger off another question or two or four and then another theory with even more questions... how am I going to discover my answers if I keep asking questions all the time?
Oh well... maybe time for a coffee, a moment or two to soak up some sun... and with time for reflection things might make more sense?
