Roald Dahl: White Hot and Passionate

Sometimes, perhaps especially on Sundays, I might like someone else’s words do the talking for me, especially when the job is done as well as it is here, by Roald Dahl. Thanks to The Joyful Mother for sharing this image on Facebook: I am not sure I am currently white hot and passionate about anyone or anything and that seems like a shame.

It is my intention to blog every day during 2014. That’s 365 blog posts. That’s quite a tall order. I love blogging but am sporadic.
