  • Many moons ago when I left my first job, there was a comment in my leaving card that has stayed with me till this day.

    It was written by one of the first people in New Zealand to die of Aids so to pass on the message and perhaps as a tribute I have done the same ever since.

    Life's little flashes of colour,
    Fun in moderation,
    A bore when too much.

    Good judgement.
