Yes Ted, it is me - at least my virtual blood and flesh. I have some
free time for once. They call it winter quarter when everything is
quiet. Even I am getting more quiet, at least my life. Actually I always
was A Quiet Man...

I am sitting here in my old house writing, playing tin and low whistles,
reading in front of the fireplace in the kitchen, or downstairs in front
of a beautiful Irish stove. It is not cold here, but I like fire during
these dead months of the year. 

The cameras are also quiet - as a matter of fact I haven't used them for
a while. I have put an end to my photographic period. Now I am doing a
little teaching at the Art Academy of the nearest bigger town. It is
nice taking the train through the wood for an hour, meeting young people
full of belief, walking through the streets back to the station after
the lessons, having a glass of wine or a beer, and then by train slowly
back again to the stoves and fireplaces up the hillside above this old
Gaelic village where we still live. 

I watch your book regularly
- - indeed a nice piece of work, which I warmly recommend.
