"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Expecting The Unexpected

Having lived in India for over five years, suddenly confronting the unexpected no longer truly surprises me.
But finding myself in the midst of a wrestling match, while walking to our local shops this morning, was one experience I had never even considered.

“If you do not expect the unexpected you will not find it, for it is not to be reached by search or trail.”
Heraclitus (c. 535 -475 BC)
