I have spent the afternoon obsessing over a difficult situation. One made so much worse by a momentary but colossal lapse of judgement on my part.
For hours I have hoped that I would wake up to discover it had all been a dream!
I see now why the invention of a time machine holds such great appeal.
Alas, I am not dreaming.
