✈ Modern Hero Revisited

About a decade ago I started a “spool” of the comments I had been making on my personal website (which had been running since the late 90s – I actually started editing web pages in 1992, for IBM’s Person to Person product). It became a regular feature, and I decided I needed to manage it […]

✈ In Sunlight

Today has been a beautiful day in Paris, spent walking and talking in the brilliant autumnal sunlight with dear and charming friends – which has been the theme for the whole weekend, actually.

It’s getting close to the time the berries need harvesting, although as we discovered last time we tried it the work involved to make coffee from them is substantial. Anyway, watch out for news of FISL and more […]
