DAVID PEACE

WHY?

Why write a blog?  Why now?

It’s been an interesting and stimulating life, and it still is: from working class home to world class universities, and onward to Africa, the Gulf, senior executive positions in global industries and more, operating in so many sectors – charities, oil & gas, foreign armed services, defence, security, civil engineering, career support, law, voluntary organisations and others.  Adventures, dangers, triumphs, disasters, huge lifetime friendships, lots of fun, a current and future illness, and a number of things I’ve not spoken about in the past.

It’s April 1 2020.  Why now?  I’m 72 and at home under semi-house arrest like everyone else, dodging the coronavirus.  My illness is ‘progressing’, as the medics say.  To write a book would be a task too far.  The mind is still active, or at least I hope it is. There’s plenty to talk about quite apart from David Peace.  I need another hobby, and to enjoy it.

So this is the latest adventure, hopefully interesting and fun.  We’ll see …..

It’s been a year.  A year and a few days.  Friday 13 November 2020.  That’s when they finally succeeded in installing the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube.  For those who weren’t...
