Akkk! I wasn’t expecting you this soon.  For now let’s just say I’m a volunteer coffee drinker in NYC.



  1. I am glad to see you take your eggs the same way I do. Also … I eat the white first and leave the yolk until last, eating it in one go. It’s how life should be lived. Thanks for your Follow. We are obviously two very discerning people.
    All the best. Kris

  2. Thanks for following my blog. As you’re a writer and a back-packer, there are certainly things in common and so I’m following yours.

    • No, thank you. I saw you comment on a post today, and followed to your blog. You write about things that I want to know. I honestly don’t have a passion for keeping a daily or weekly blog , and rarely come for that reason. When I do, it’s pretty light , and hopefully humorous. The thing is, as much as I can do on my own, having a place to read about history, style, technique, and personal experience by the work of others like yourself, well, that is just a huge privilege. I love what you are writing about. Thanks Simon!

  3. Anyone who drinks that much coffee must be a pretty good person. Pity we can’t have some kind of competition! 😉

    • Thanks so much Margaret Rose. Competitive coffee drinking? I think you might be on to something there. Let me know. 😉

  4. I like your about page!
    Thanks for reading my Revision, Revision,
    Enduring Threads.

    • Thank you so much, bk. This was hard to do and has changed about one hundred times before I came here. Hard to write an ‘about’. It will change again as things always do.

      I liked that piece you wrote, especially the part where you were thinking about structure. I think about this stuff all the time. As far as adverb overuse, well, it is important, but not really really important.;-) I mean, some characters just talk that way. There are no rules, but I get it. What other people say is good, very good, very very good. Critics have their rules. The masters make the roads we write on. They were criticized for driving in the wrong lane. Then they owned the road.

      Okay this comment is turning into a piece now, so I guess I’ll write it.

      Enjoy the day and thanks again.
