This is my first ever blog posting. I've spent six months posting thoughts on FB and, although the discipline of using only 420 characters is good in restraining any tendency to wordiness on my part, it makes it fiendishly difficult sometimes to really say what I want to say. I intend to continue to post on my FB pages, and then expand the thinking here if I can summon the energy - and especially to capture any thoughts stimulated by, or even borrowed from, the conversation with my lively friends. I shall try to have the grace to attribute all borrowings by reference to "wise friend".
Please consider this the rough draft for my book of commentary on the world I live in. That's the book that will never get written. I don't have the patience or the discipline or the energy to write a book worth reading.
