Hello, Good People.
I haven’t been in touch for a few days as there wasn’t anything of note to relate. But what a difference a single day can make.
My printer gave me grief. Paper kept jamming when I was trying to print off a 19-page document from the Internet. I was reminded of one thing, learnt another: patience can be a virtue, and also to going the re-boot route. Mmmmmmmm!
I’m still into research for my final ‘BoCheK Tale’ – ‘BLOOD’. As with ‘PROMETHEUS ASCENDING’, my most pressing problem was how to present the narrative of the ‘Tale’; for the first part, and then the second part, each quite different in their turn. I wanted to do so in the first person singular, which presented its own problems. I went to bed one night, still mulling over my possible options. I awoke in the night, ‘hearing’ myself mentally narrating the story. In so doing, I found I had answers to my questions. I got out of bed, went into the lounge, scribbled out two paragraphs; one beginning the ‘Tale’, the other beginning the second part of the ‘Tale’. That done, I returned to bed and to sleep. Kinda neat, huh?
One slight wisp of cloud on the horizon. I went to the Docs for a six-monthly check-up on my overall state of health. All was fine. Then, as I stood to go, the nice young lady Doctor asked me about a tiny spot on my forehead, which I was aware of, but it had been hitching a ride on my bod for years, without hassle. Although she believed it to be a dormant, minimal form of skin cancer, she has decided it must be checked out. Hey-ho. At the end of next June, I’ll have reached my Biblical three score years and ten. I’ll be quite a happy old bunny. So much so, as long as nothing has happened re my health in relation to that ‘spot’ up to that time, nor does so beyond it, I’ll let sleeping dogs lie. Mind you, I could invite it to pack its bag and sod off for a holiday, ‘Monty Phython’ style!
So, Christmas beckons, but that’s another story! Hopefully, my next posting will be to let you know the details of the two ‘books’ about to go on kindle.
That’s it. Yoiks and Tally-Ho!!
