Decided to start an online diary. I’m an avid reader, mostly historical and fantasy fiction but have never made a sustained effort to write. So I thought starting an online diary would be the perfect opportunity to perfect my writing skills and instill some writing discipline.
Joined the Conservative party, mainly because I’m interested in the leadership race. Supporting Caroline Mulroney. Trying to figure out what politics is all about…..and people for that matter. Read a letter to the editor in the Tribune this week. The female writer was taking exception to a previous letter where the male had referred to women as ladies. She inferred this was a derogatory term. I thought lady was a woman of refinement the same as a gentleman was a man of refinement. But what do I know.
As I wrote on my Facebook page on my birthday:
My name is Len
Three score and ten
The biblical age
For leaving life’s stage
But I’m not done yet
Anyway this is my introduction to day one of my blogging diary. I enjoyed the experience.
