The three things that presently give me the most enjoyment in my day is (1) spending quality time with my lovely wife, Sheila, and giving daily prayer and time to fully relax a more regular slot in my life. (2) Being out in the fresh air surrounded by nature. I intend to gradually resume regular daily walks that are within my capabilities and spend as much time as the weather and my health allows me to spend with my wife at our allotment. (3) is to continue with my daily singing practice and reallocate my previous time spent writing stories and lengthy 'Thoughts for today', singing instead. In order to keep my daily thought in an amended form, instead of writing what are sometimes essays which often incorporate more strands of thought than any reader ought to be expected to consider, I will simply place one thought per day in my introduction to my daily song.
Fifty-five years ago, I gave up a singing career because of foolish pride and a character flaw that led me to conclude, if I wasn't the best singer in the world (and there were many as good and many more better than I was around at the time), then I would prefer to withdraw from the song field. For the next fifty-five years I never sang in public again; indeed I grew to greatly fear the prospect. Having been practising singing daily again for the past six months, I find that my love for expressing my feelings through song has grown as strong as they ever were expressed through the written word. I am now willingly prepared to lose my daily literary voice and instead focus upon the singing voice I am starting to find again.
Thank you for reading my intentions. I hope that you all have a better understanding of this complicated man and his proposed change of routine. Believe me when I repeat that I am happier with my life today than I have ever been, and proposed changes to my daily routine are being made to sustain and maintain that degree of happiness in my life. Love and peace. Bill xxx
