I didn’t decide to hoard books. I was born this way.

  1. I nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award. Please see my last post on Swansongs and Prose Pam if you would like to accept it.

    1. Hey thanks, but too much πŸ™‚ I don’t know. The draft novel has to be finished in next two weeks and then it is out doing the rounds. If it doesn’t fly then it will go out on ebooks for download. It will be available one way or the other πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you for ‘following’ my blog. I will not attempt to relate to ancient books, many I have read, enjoyed, and worried over during my youth. I will not read them again. Strange how what was gleamed years ago will still leak into a person’s current thoughts; there is so much current energy being laid in current books and music; what time I have left, I will absorb a small particle of it.
    I look forward to reading your book when you put it on ebooks or if it gets to a library. And I hope it does.

    You talked about an event that really stopped my heart briefly. Images seen around Dylan during concerts! Oh yes… I do believe ‘they’ visit us. We see them often and never realize it… I believe that.
    Your music. A dreamy sound that reminds me of Pink Floyd; don’t ask me why; it just does.
    I wish you much success. It is my pleasure to visit and listen to you. thank You !

    1. Hey thanks very much. That is so appreciated. I’m way behind with catching up so hopefully this weekend I can get round all comments on here. Thanks again πŸ™‚

  4. Thank you for finding and following me. I jumped over to take a look at your blog and read your posting about finally finishing your draft. I know exactly where you are coming from, I feel my isn’t perfect, I keep ‘tweaking’ it. You put so much into it, it’s hard to hand it over to an editor… because I can make a few more improvements… and what if no-one likes it and what if.. I get what you are saying completely! πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you. It is always good to hear I’m not alone with my thoughts and experiences . I have managed to leave it alone now and I’m waiting to hear back. Starting my next one properly this weekend πŸ™‚

  5. Hi there,

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comments and for stopping by. I am following your blog now which looks so good. You have a fascinating career to date and I am looking forward to reading more. Thanks again.

  6. I’ve been trying to make my novels (2) available via the blog, and am also trying to integrate my music into written text. I completed a soundtrack for the first novel, and may do a second CD for the second book. I like the music you presented (song1520 on UTube). Keep going.

  7. Thank you so much for visiting and following my blog πŸ™‚ I like what you write and I’m gonna follow you. Looking forward to read more of your stuff. πŸ™‚

  8. Hi GJ, I wanted to thank you for the follow!
    My blog is a bilingual one. So you may get links to poems in English as well as to some in Italian… Pictures, on the other hand, have no language barriers πŸ˜‰
    Keep up the good work.
