Towards Better Democracy

Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

Plaintive in tone


I don’t want to come across plaintive in tone. Simply because I am overwhelmed, over emotional – an ex-engineer feels emotions, well, yes, he does – struggling to cope with all the demands which are, after all, self-imposed.

This is not the case; I am thrilled, pleased, grateful, for all the support I receive. I could not have expected the response I continue to receive, not that I had any expectations in the first place. I said to my wife two or three days ago, look at how far I have come since you encouraged me to do something with the work I produce.

What appears to be happening is that, as successive individuals see the work, they like it. I would never have thought such a thing possible. After all, I just produce it. And would anyway. Be that the case, I still feel driven, compelled, to get the work in front of as many people as I possibly can, and to find as many venues as possible.

Yet, it all seems incredible. But, as my wife says, that person, who, more than any other, encourages me, the work speaks for itself.
