My Red File
 
I suspect that most of us develop a collection of papers that we think we ought to hang on to for various reasons. I did. Over time I added various items that inspired me, moved me or made me smile. Eventually they finished up in a big red plastic file that sits on my shelf. Now I find I can't resist putting some of those things onto this website, as part of my concept of 'The thread that runs through everything in life'. My only justification is that they might provide someone else with a bit of the entertainment they have given me.
