I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

A card for Alan

(viewed 2192 times)
Bookmark and Share
This card was made by Libby who met him only a couple of times at most, but when she heard he had cancer she drew this for him

He made that impression on people.

Last night he left us - rather more quickly and suddenly than we were prepared for

Helen is with me and Beth will be home soon - there are no words

Our last ones to each other although we didn't know it was to tell each other we loved each other and he said 'Thank you again'
