OK, a bit random: I was reading a poem today (time to do more of that these days!) which centred on the word “Otherwise.” I thought about that word for a while. Why don’t you? What are the associations that come with it; good or bad? What is the instinctive tone in which you hear that word before having time to think of it too much? Does it promote fear or trust, anxiety or thankfulness, resentment, joy or something else? It showed me quite a lot about myself, my outlook, my view of God…interesting…
