The question of the day is: Do I pay $70 to see a doctor? OR wait till things get worse and go to the hospital and pay nothing?


She stood upon a rock

wondering if the waves

would take her

into the calm and shallow water

of some quiet lagoon -

or would they wash her off her feet

into the sea

where the ocean boils

with an excitement

so turnbulent,

her body would surely drown

in the ecstasy -

The Thoughts of Nanushka, Nan Witcomb

This was my favourite poem growing up
