    Martain, today you commented “Seems you lead an interesting life” referring to me. I’ve read some of your words and I picture you with pen and paper under a tree somewhere in this vast world doing your magic. I too think yours is mighty nice too.
    Be well my friend!

  4. Hi Martin,
    I just spent some enjoyable time reading your impressive blogs, following down the line from month to month, year to year, but there is an endless melancholic thread Martin, stringing all of what you write together, and I am not sure what to feel about that.

    I will keep reading………..


    • Forgive the late reply, but I was on travel. Thank you for taking the time and energy looking at my posts. They are rather ambiguous and ech person brings their own experience to bear in discerning their meaning(s). I would just suggest that perhaps rather than merely being melancholic, that they ask you to you look through like and dislike and hope, disillusionment and hopelessness – to what might lie beneath these, and beneath all our concepts and constructs. If you do look, Paul, please let me know what you find. :- )
