I know I want to write more because I feel I have some important things to say which may help other people. I have been busy over the last couple of weeks and I do have a bit of a “manana” attitude at times but these are really just excuses. I should be posting at least once a week without fail but I have to avoid both whinging and ranting.
I usually buy the i newspaper mainly because its cheap but also because its certainly better quality and not as biased as many others. I also look at the Guardian website virtually every day as I like Owen Jones and Polly Toynbee, they have superb powers of analysis. However, today an article in the i by Jarvis Cocker caught my eye about a writer called Richard Brautigan. I don’t know why but I feel compelled to now read some of his work. It may be pants or it may be great but I’m sure it will be different. I have become so (dare I say it) bored with so much “bestseller” stuff and its great when someone who you have time for makes a suggestion. I shall read one of his books but am determined NOT to buy it from Amazon.
