About meFormer Brit, ex-seaman and retired International Contracts & Projects Director.
No more airplanes, airports, business trips.
Lots of time for reading!

... Oh all the places I have been, and the all things that I have seen!



About my libraryBorges:"It is not the reading that matters, but the re-reading."

Life is first boredom, then fear.
Whether or not we use it, it goes,
And leaves what something hidden from us chose,
And age, and then the only end of age.

Just "Larkin (Phillip) about" although it is very apt at my age.
