Anybody who knows me knows I'm a man of few words so finding enough of them to fill this space on a daily basis is quite a challenge. Wish me luck.
Later: I've been spending some time this afternoon adding photos where missing and doing some minor editing on the Journal. There should be a photo on all the journal entries from December 8th on. Have a look.

The trick is not to forget, but to remember safely. Oh no, I know I cannot walk on the old pathways - use the old patterns to cut new dresses - but I must not forget them, or the experiences that gave rise to them. I am what I am, with the views I have, with the desires and skills and talents that I may possess, because of what I have been. I know what I know because I have lived what I have lived. To have any sort of wisdom without paying for the acquisition of it is not possible.
