excerpt from "Blindness" by Jose Saramago

"I think that we are all going to die, it's just a matter of time, Dying has always been a matter of time, said the doctor,"  Blindness by Jose Saramago  p.280.

Reading this at the moment and thinking how up to date it is on so many issues. Not least...the banking ones.


  1. I had to Wiki this one..Jaysus that sounds like a book I might like. The dying quote though Gerry *shrug* I believe a lot of spiritual things but to sit here and think Jesus is coming to gather me up in the sky is a fools dream. I may be a fool but I am not a dreamer. I will die, peacefully, by accident, or violently but one thing is sure as I am still able to type these words-I will die.

  2. My wife banks with Barclays, and as she said recently 'who's money is paying this fine? The clients, of course!'

    Funny old world.


I'm always glad to receive a comment so a big thankyou to all those who leave one.
