I’m working on a particularly involved project at the moment which requires a great deal of time, attention and concentration. It is quite enjoyable but can be intense and so I find myself sometimes looking ahead to the end point when it is finished. After long periods of concentration you also find yourself getting sidetracked into frivolity from time to time. For example I was reading a book last week where the author referred to gin as ‘Mother’s Ruin’. It wasn’t the first time I had heard this but suddenly, during a downtime moment I wanted to know why gin had the power to destroy a mother and not vodka, brandy or whiskey. Of course such a thought sparked other thoughts about alcohol names and so the quest began in earnest.
