An Online Presence


An ongoing Blog with contributions from my alter egos Rafe Beedeeeye and Godfree Finker at Spindriftpages - Blog which will be mainly used to report updates to the website. A website which as far as is possible will match the content of my written autobiographical book at Opvscvla

Sullen - A collection of writing in a poetic style, book form (a continuous project)

71 - A collection of auto-biographical chapters, texts, tracts, essays, rants, my theories, ideas etc. on various subjects, book form (a continuous project)

I am 71 years of age and I choose these things to guide my efforts and define the remainder of my life. I thus restrain and contain myself. I have already had a life worth living. I have often been unhappy but never, never for one smallest thought or moment, have I been discontent with my lot.


I make no recommendations but these:-

Above all love and be yourself and do your own thing!
Love all the other animals and respect their rights!
Demand the same in return!
Fight for these things your whole life!

Oh! and also Beethovens String Quartet Opus 130
And lastly Kind of Blue by Miles Davis!


This is my life and I love it. I wish myself luck to see it through as I would hope.
