The Welcome Stranger

The "Welcome Stranger" was the name given to the largest alluvial gold nugget found in the world, near Ballarat, Australia, in 1869.

My search in this blog is for the 'gold' that may be yielded by my 'Unwelcome Stranger'. I have seen some of it shining already.....

The unwelcome stranger is mine: it did not result from outside infection or some similar circumstance. It resulted from an incident within myself, the cause of which I will probably never know, though I do have my theories. But it is because it is mine, I have to recognise and accept that, and deal with it on those terms
