Hello world!

Today, as they say, is the first day of the rest of my life. For the umpteenth time I’m trying to get my blog up and running. Here’s hoping!

The reason I’m keen to get this going is that I have only limited mobility following cancer and heart problems and I figure that this may be the best way to stay in touch with the world. Unless you’ve been in this situation yourself you’ll probably not think muuch about being in the world but ourt of touch with it most of the time. Believe me, just you and a computer screen can be an unexciting life. However, it beats no life every time.

The great passion and mainstay of my current existence (other than my wonderful wife, that is) is poetry.
