Can't See The Wood For The Trees

<p>What I love about life is that there is just so much of it, and no knowing all of it. I don&rsquo;t think I could ever be bored &ndash; there is just too much going on and I am almost overwhelmed by the information I have access to through television, the internet, the papers, magazines, just being in London.
