I started with Word Press today not entirely sure what I am doing and if this is the internet equivalent of a writing all alone  in a draughty garret. Still as gran used to say, every journey starts with a……freshly made pack of sarnies and a hot flask of tea.

‘Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose or paint can manage to escape the madness, the melancholia, the panic fear which is inherent in the human situation.’ Auden noted: Man needs to escape as he needs food and deep sleep.’

Graham Greene
