    I am your friend and my love for you goes deep. There is nothing I can give you which you have not got, But there is much, very much, that, while I cannot give it, you can take. No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in today. Take heaven! No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present little instant. Take peace! The gloom of the world is but a shadow. Behind it, yet within our reach, is joy.

    Giovanni Giocondo

    Talking of being late, I once arrived for work at 8:30 am when I should have been there at 8:00 am.

    The boss barked; "Where were you at 8 o'clock?"

    I replied; "Why? What happened?" and was promptly sent home and docked a day's pay for insolence!

    I used to arrive at work at approx 7:30am rather than the 8:30am I was contracted to be there, as I found the hour before everyone else arrives allowed me to complete a lot of system tasks without the problems of "the users".

    This stopped when one day I arrived at 8:05am due to problems and was greeted with "Oh there you are, we thought you were ill and not coming in" (I also had not missed a day for illness in fifteen years).

    From then on I "worked to the Clock"
