Thought for the Day

It is almost one year since I started this blog. During that time some one hundred and forty two pieces have been posted and the site has attracted almost two thousand hits. Now, I accept that, compared to some blogs, two thousand is not a large number. However, I feel that such a number is a happy start. It is also rewarding to see that some readers stay for anywhere between 5 minutes and one hour, reading many pages at one sitting. I only wish more people would add a comment or two; feedback is always helpful and interesting to have, even if it is sometimes controversial.

The most recent problem has been finding the time to write for the blog. I do realise that writers are always making such excuses. However, I can assure you that it is true! I am reminded of a quote, although I am afraid that I cannot attribute it:

I'm just catching up with yesterday; by tomorrow I should be ready for today.

That just about sums up the current situation. However, one of the New Year's resolutions is to re-light the blogging candle. So, thank you for your interest and, in the words of a certain television programme, stay tuned...

How kind!

However, as time (or the lack of it) is the most significant limiting factor in my endeavours, and as I am writing this at 05.30hrs, I am reminded of yet another (unattributable)quotation:

'The trouble with getting to work on time is that it makes the day so long.'

I guess, however, that we cannot have it all ways!

Thank you for your continued interest.
