      • I concur, Doc, as to your enigmatic question, I believe, distraction is something that prevents one from concentrating on something else and as such, we all have things to do at times, that doesn’t necessarily fill us with glee, if we should put them off, then perhaps it’s procrastination.

        Thank you for this fine opportunity of indulgence in a bout of literary fencing and of thrusting and parrying towards enlightenment and clarity…
        I love it!
