I finished reading:

"Journal of a Novel, The East of Eden Letters" written by John Steinbeck. 182 Pages.

This a journal that Steinbeck wrote for his editor, Pascal Covici, whilst he was writing East of Eden. Funnily enough East of Eden is one of the few Steinbeck books I do not own. This was interesting and enjoyed it despite the fact that I do not normally enjoy reading journals or diary's.

This is the 10th book I have read this year. 3728 pages ar an average of 373 per book.

I listened to :

"Farewell" a live recording of Petra's farewell concert funnily enough.

I listened to a new CD.

"Da Pacem Domine" composed by Arvo Part performed by The Hilliard Ensemble.

"Lamentate" composed by Arvo Part performed by Alexei Lubimov (piano) and the SWR Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andrey Boreyko.

This was an excellent CD that I thoroughly enjoyed.

40!!!! Wow, how did that happen? Where did time go? Amazing.

Well, I've had a blessed forty years. Many, many great experiences. I mean how many people from Hartlepool have been to the places I have? Lived in the places I have? There are way to many things to talk about, or, reminisce on. All I can say is that I am blessed with the family, friends, love that I have had.
