Well quiet night tonight – no Gareth! He’s coming tomorrow instead. Actually, I’ve been racing ahead writing “The Trial” and I even surprised myself at how much I got done. I know I am a naturally good writer! but this really had the makings of difficult stuff before I started it. Don’t get me wrong, it still has. But I shall get it finished. I always do when I start something.
I guess I must be mad in a funny sort of way though. Because who really cares about an event of 35 years ago, even if it did make world headlines at the time. The honest answer is, most people don’t, but I am only too aware what can happen and somebody gets some obsession and tries to change events of the past in the present. That is much more of a sickness really, but the problem is there’s nobody else on God’s earth who can do anything about it except the person directly involved i.e. myself!
So that’s just what I’m doing. Setting the record straight for 35 years ago so people can still have the truth in the present.
That’s about it for the writing really. Just to keep my avid readers up to date!
Its been another lovely day. When I walked up the road this afternoon, the air was clear and I noticed how green the woods were. Everything is living again; not that anything ever ‘died’, but you can see the direct fruitage of life now. But that’s only if you’re looking!
One nice little compliment a couple of days back. A black girl approached me in the store and said . . . “David, I’ve been reading your book and can’t put it down!” She obviously knew who I was although I had never seen her before. Its nice to be appreciated sometimes, I suppose!
For the moment,
