Gideon's Blog

In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

Good old Derb, meanwhile, had a lovely appreciation for an author I had no idea he appreciated: Samuel Beckett. It was published during my hiatus, on the occasion of Beckett's centenary. I'm glad to see there's at least one Irish writer we both admire.

My only comment, addressed more to Derb himself than to anyone else, is that there's noble precedent to follow if one would be a man of firm faith without denying one's own dread of annihiliation. So if it is morbid contemplation that has banked the fires of Derb's faith, he should take comfort that a greater hero of his than Beckett has been there, and did not lose faith in consequence.
