        We know that Seneca was describing fear and I thought of Sofagirl’s post ‘Nothing to fear but fear itself’ – and then of people who have hypochondriacal tendencies, where reality comes last and reason and logic give way to the inner machinations of the mind (not the Spongebob variety!) – No boundaries can be a terrible thing, but, like you, I prefer to look at the terrific side of endless !! and Winstonmoreton’s pearl in the oyster !!
