The latest in my Shapes of Life series, "One Too Many" is about how we constantly add to our burdens and obligations. Normally we can keep them suspended, under control and even when we can't we have an "umbrella" that shields us from the deluge. But sometimes we add just that one thing too many and it comes down on us with such force that our umbrella cannot hold it back.
Some people can get under shelter before even getting wet while others have to be close to drowning before they realise that beating the same old path is untenable.
I was once close to drowning. It wasn't fun. I've since swum free and dried off. Life is much more fun now.
