Having just survived a condition that would have been fatal (true, but let's not fuss) I'm enjoying an unplanned opportunity to sort out the important things in life. Beyond my love for my wife and family, our family dog, friends, and a lifelong thirst for musical expression, I intend to carve out a firmer place for painting and gaming, which brings me so much pleasure and relaxation. I'm rarely personal on this blog (beyond exposing my part in our shared obsession with toy soldiers) and I'm certainly not a Facebook type that thinks every trivial aspect of my life will be of interest to a diverse audience. So this is just something of an interim bulletin and provides a usable excuse for not having posted anything in the past fortnight. In the absence of a Facebook account, I felt I had to write something somewhere. It remains for me to express my deep-felt gratitude for the kind and brilliant staff of the hospital in whose care I currently lie.
