My hotmail email inbox had six messages in it this morning.
Six little lines
Five names that I knew
Six people that wanted me to know something.
There they were, silent and waiting.
One from a dear friend shared sad news of a family death.
The next was an upbeat message from the blind cockerel's previous owner seeking information on a much missed pet
and the next was a chatty story from a friend suffering from depression, that could not quite hide the mental pain in her heart, despite an effort to be upbeat and positive.
The fourth,was from a work colleague, excited at her imminent trip to New York (she emailed from the airport I think)....and the fifth was a business like news from a rural animal feed company offering cheap poultry wormer.
The sixth was some spam which had somehow made it into my inbox....it was marked " top secret" and was supposedly sent "from" someone called lawel Garba.....lawel was deleted away without a thought.
Six messages...four of note.
All sent within minutes of each other.......It's a strange world.......
