it's never too late to start

This being my first foray into blogging, I have been wondering how to go about it. Actually, I read only two blogs on the net;Raymond's Bliss, not me (how wierd would that be?), some chap in belgium, got to know his blog from Izak, who is a brother to my friend Mark. Why am I explaining all this? I guess because it's my blog and I can write almost anything I want. Oh and the other blog is Minega's World, Minega is a friend of Raymond's. I've never met these two chaps in my life but I find their blogs interesting. Think I will drop them a comment one of these days.

Anyway back to the point (if any), I read these blogs and thought to myself; "Hey, I'm not going to run for political office any time soon, so let's go blogging (Ooh la la la, trumpets) and so here I am.

Got a new book to read, "The moral intelligence of children", only gone a few pages so can't really tell how good it is. According to the cover it's about how children acquire morals from the people around them, how you can be a better moral model or reference for children you come into contact with. Reads good so far.

Most recent poem I read

Batter my heart, three-person'd God ; for you
As yet but knock ; breathe, shine, and seek to mend ;
That I may rise, and stand, o'erthrow me, and bend
Your force, to break, blow, burn, and make me new.
I, like an usurp'd town, to another due,
Labour to admit you, but O, to no end.
Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend,
But is captived, and proves weak or untrue.
Yet dearly I love you, and would be loved fain,
But am betroth'd unto your enemy ;
Divorce me, untie, or break that knot again,
Take me to you, imprison me, for I,
Except you enthrall me, never shall be free,
Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.
---John Donne
