Tuesday this week was not a good day. While in south London in the early evening the car my wife and I were travelling in was rear-ended as we paused on a congested road to let oncoming traffic go past. Luckily my wife and I are largely intact although we have been suffering the after–effects of whiplash but thankfully no serious injury or bones broken. Whiplash however is not pleasant but in the scheme of things not life threatening. Our car is under repair as are we.
But this experience just reminded me of how vulnerable we are. Life is precious. I re-learnt a new word this week: vulnerability.
