Well you may be pleased to know, the heavy physical work is now finished. There’s so little to do now in comparison to what’s been done, its hardly worth mentioning.
So, I’m just relaxing in my favourite chair with a well-deserved glass of whiskey (all right, topped up with ginger wine!). Its nice to just relax sometimes and think about virtually nothing. Its not that I’m not still aware of some important things; just that I know I have nothing immediately to do about them.
Going to take a break from anymore writing tonight as well. Still have some material to read through so will probably do that later.
On reflection, I think I may have been inadvertently rude to dear Cat. I realise I’ve developed a habit of talking about him rather than to him, but its nothing personal. As a matter of fact, I’m pleased to see him back in a funny sort of way (note . . . ‘in a funny sort of way’!) as he cheers me up sometimes when he chooses to be ridiculous. Seriously, its good to have a sense of humour sometimes and I can think of one or two people who are sadly lacking in this respect. One great Eastern mystic once said, humour is the ability to laugh at ourselves; and not many people like to do that. I can actually; I really can! Maybe my early mystical training had something to do with it when I became of the importance of ‘going beyond’ the ego; that human ego that so often causes so much trouble. Some people can be so caught in their ego’s though, its so tragic as to be almost comical!
Gareth wrote me an introduction for the new book last night. Rather he’s done the first draught which reads OK to me. Not quite sure how to take his line of . . . (which read something like) . . . “where I had the good fortune (though some might call it ‘misfortune’) to meet David Farrant” . . . Etc, etc. Bloody cheek! I’ll have to let him keep it in though if he really wants as its his introduction.
He may actually have a point though. I retrospect, I do seem to have an effect on some people and it isn’t always an amicable one!
But enough of this self-analysis. I’m a little physically tired (never mentally!) and I do need to mix another glass of whiskey!
