Introduction

Here’s a photograph.
Me.

It is flattering, chosen from a number of much less flattering photographs. It’s the one that goes on the cover of my books. Me on a good day. I have combed my hair and am trying hard to be photogenic. I’m not sure I like the way my head tilts to the side. I don’t think it does normally

What else? What other salient facts? …

Well, wife, children will wish to speak for themselves.

My deeds, such as they are, vary with the seasons and my inclinations, and anyway isn’t that what the blog is for; to divulge slices of information – should anyone be interested – on my miscellaneous musings and other indiscretions.

I’m currently working on a book about my travels in India, with attendant history thrown in. It’s funny and informative, or so I think. If it ever sees the light of day, it might amuse you.

One other thing I will say about myself is that, besides writing, I meditate (vipassana) for 3 hours a day. Me is a difficult and (hopefully) vanishing topic for meditators. This – the impermanence of me – makes the author of this page flinch from setting into permatype anything further.

So, enough. Look at other pages. Buy my books. Tell your friends.
