Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...

A Real Blast From The Past

Round about a year ago, I wrote about finding a fifty year old airmail letter in a second hand book and being so intrigued by it that I just had to find out more. (Scroll down to ‘Bookmarking the Past’ if you’d like to read all about that.)


Imagine my astonishment when an old friend came across a postcard that I’d written to him around the same time. Only he and I understand the significance of the text and I plan to keep it that way, but I’m staggered that he found it after all those years. It’s caused me to wonder how many more of my missives are dotted around the world and whether they’ll ever turn up to delight or mortify me.
