Fresh Expressions

As worlds collide interesting things happen and having people who inhabit different planets sleeping under ones roof brings nothing but joy.

Earlier this year I played host to a Russian diplomat posted in Africa. En route home to Moscow he talked about the fall of the Berlin Wall as being the day "Russia gained its independence from the Soviet Union."

This week it has been my pleasure and delight to host a guest who talked of being "diagnosed as intelligent" at the age of three.

Language is most frightfully limiting.
