Well, that was a very good birthday: climbing Cadair Idris with Lotte and Tan, sampling my very first homebrew at the summit (a truly excellent American style IPA - thankfully, it would have been such a downer if it had been rubbish). Then a phone call with my wonderful granddaughter, Olivia, and of course her wonderful parents. A night in the pub with good mates and a beautifully still Cardigan Bay in the background (though my food in the Glen was a bit crap and expensive!). Some nice cards and a lot of best wishes on that Facebook they have these days - much appreciated, strangely moving actually). A couple of good book presents, including China Mieville's 'Three Moments of an Explosion' which I'm SO looking forward to. Finally, a nice present (parting gift?) from the academy, page proofs for 'The Radicalization of Pedagogy' in which Kye Askins and I have a chapter - a piece of fourm theatre, 'Who Cares?'
Cheers everyone for making my birthday such a good day in so many ways
I am he as you are he as you are me, and we are all together
What's going on?
A story, essay, lyric or rhyme with no reason almost every day...
