Graham Michael Drake's
I'm just going with the flow.
It seems that I'm not
alone, as I've experimented
with the potential of a diary on the Web, a sort of 'weblog',
for exploring shattered-beliefs and, as yet, unfulfilled-dreams
and found myself at a time, now, where I'm enjoying doing something positive.
Explored Facebook as I work out Who I Am
As my Diary pages have been more of a report on Sally's condition,
I decided to pause my updates till I could get back to my life.
2004 Web Diary
Thanks to those who have been there for me of late
and given me so much support, kindness and a nudge, when most needed.
Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it."
Bits and Bobs from Graham's Online Journals.

6th January 2004
Enjoyed listening to 'Freebird' again
but know that I must change.
Friday 19th December 2003
Received the first three Modules
of a "Certificate in Life Coaching"
'remote learning' training course.
Monday 15th December
Started reading (properly, but slowly)
The Spiritual Dimension of the Enneagram—Nine Faces of the Soul
by Sandra Maitri.
Wednesday 26th November
Tested as an Enneagram 5 at Tickle,
but why do I want to be a 9,
and was led astray by the superb range of Tests
that are also available on their site.
Sunday 23rd November
I took the 'full test' at The Enneagram Institute
and was kindly offered another, free go, in a couple of weeks,
when my head should be more focused,
as both the 5 and 7 were equally prominent.
Wednesday 19th November
Enjoyed a session of readings from my 70s copy of the Lüscher Test
and was pleased that I hadn't varied much.
Monday 3rd November
I started to read an article on 'New Age' concepts,
and was intrigued to be led to The Enneagram.
Wednesday 20th August
My Wife, Sylvia, after handing me a very large Brandy,
informed me that she was exchanging me for another bloke.
Saturday 16th August
Our Son Michael, treated me to the wonderful new LP,
greendale from Neil Young, via play.com,
OK, it's really a CD + video DVD.
I enjoyed listening to a 2002 radio chat with J. J. Cale.
Friday 11 July
Found out that Warren Zevon's
last/final album 'The Wind' will be released in August and
while I'm personally "Still Looking for the Next Best Thing"
I also saw that there is something new from Leonard Cohen soon.
Friday 27 June
Received a nice return E-mail from Al Kooper.
Thursday 26 June
Took advantage of my explorations of the Internet,
at a leisurely pace, via our new found Broadband connection,
to send an E-mail to Al Kooper
thanking him for his contribution to my life.
As a long time listener to Bob
it seems that I now fall into the 'Classic Rock' category
when browsing the numerous Internet Radio Stations,
such as Planet Rock, DR Rock and Station6070S,
while Media Player has me as 'Folk Essentials'
when Radio@Netscape Plus has me as 'Psychedelic'
but it all adds to my life's list of meta tags...
John Mayall, a Psychedelic Macclesfield Man... Mmm.
Monday 16 June 2003
While I've long-time enjoyed my 'dial-up' Cix Internet connection,
I've recently also taken the jump to 'NTL' Broadband
and I'm intrigued about how to best 'freely' promote the Cix concept further.
