You are going down a long, very steep grade.
The brakes fail.
But the steering still works.
You have about one chance in one thousand of avoiding a crash.
If you don't avoid it, you at least have some discretion as to where it happens.....
Are you out of control ?
There are days when life rather feels like that.
Today was one of them.
...and there have been a lot of todays lately.
[For the record, I am not depressed, just watching the passing scene with a not quite detached state of mind.]
