I ‘come not lightly to the blank page’ this morning. Stephen King’s words serve to remind me that it’s not just an act of will on my part, putting words on this page, but it’s also a show of faith - faith from the reader that their time reading what I have to write is worthwhile. I look forward to sharing the results with you, when the time comes.
Number Ten Downing Street, a famous house built between 1682-1684 with a particularly interesting history, click on the link to a brilliant blog to read more.
Ten, my number of today. A nice round number, the number of fingers on my typing hands and a number of the greatest significance to Christians and Jews alike. I like this little quote from Faust by Goethe,
"If nine is one
Ten is none
