Certificate of Existence


This is an announcement that I am, to the best of my knowledge and belief, still alive.

Also, that I have been caught up in rather a whirlwind of different distractions.

One of these is tilting at the windmill of trying to save something with a long and valuable tradition – which is still vibrantly relevant – from the ravages of the woefully ignorant, self-centredly greedy, and inappropriately conceited.

Another is a burst of creative urge on my current novel, to which 6 777 words have been added in three days. Β 

Yet another is the inexorable progress of a lifestyle change.

    Well done my friend, its good to know
    that life still has you in its tow
    just drift along, do not despair
    enjoy your life without a care.
    Just keep them little legs a kickin
    that will keep your heart a ticking
    then you will reach a good old age
    you will be called ‘ the wisebold sage’
