Shortly after my retirement I conceived the idea of starting to write these little essays, piecemeal, randomly, in a little book I carried around with me.

Only after about 30 of them did I begin to realize it was a kind of autobiography – non-linear, of course, episodic – through the songs that have peppered my life. It’s inevitably a very personal series of reflections, then, and so you’ll meet my family, friends, kids, without much explanation and we go along.

You’ll discover the patterns and changes of my life, the work, the Christian faith, the period of living abroad, the family life. The whole thing has got to be more interesting for me than for anyone else! But I would be interested to know if this works as a blog, and if others can find some points of contact in it too.

    • Yours is one classy blog, Thom, with some great, probing reflections. just been reading the ‘Fathers Day’ post. Loved it; and will be reading often! Mine will be a more modest series of personal reflections, I think – but I hope you’ll dip in and enjoy! Jeff
