Only time will tell….. (2009-11-30)

I have arrived at an intellectual chaos (2009-11-30)

Not my words but the words of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, one of my favourite authors. Describes me quite well at present, I really do not know where my head is at. I’m not sleeping as well as I should, not eating that well either, I can’t concentrate for long periods and I can’t be there for […]

The times they are a’changin……. (2009-11-28)
