    Put my what I believe post into coffee break as I am unable to blog!
    My blogging is unbloggable, I am blogless, bereft of a blog

    Bereft of a blog.
    I shall need to hog.
    A forum or two.
    To communicate with you.
    A a line or a few.

    Lifes a bit weird.
    Just as I feared.
    My rhymes are bad
    tragically sad.
    I'm going mad...etc

    I have often wondered what others believe in. How they see things, how different things might be if you could step inside someone else's head, would the world be a different place?
    I was wondering if you word clouders ever think the same?
    For the truth in someone else's mind is their truth and no less true than ours.
    I am going to put a post up about what I believe and how I see things.
    If we get enough respondents, maybe it could be the word cloud's first book!

    I thought I was the only one stupid enough to be up at this time.

    The collaborative story seems to me like a raggy toy being pulled by a bunch of puppies in all directions, interesting but weird!

    Erich Segal
    Has passed away, odd I met him in 1984 when I did his telephone, he was a nice guy and had a long thin swimming pool in his house in Hampstead, he told me he was a writer but as a laddish 22 year old BT engineer I didn't even know who he was. I only found out when the Mail on Sunday did a story about his swimming pool and I discovered he was the bloke who wrote love story.
    Read the book and liked it.
    Nice man.

    I had no idea, I thought it was like a general, place to go and daub your own graffiti Banksy style, but as a duffer I couldn't find it, and there it was.
