I'm writing again, after a month or so away. God Almighty, it's a painful process! I take comfort in this truth, uttered by Christ:

"A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world." John 16:21

Anything of true value usually is preceded by pain. I suppose the intensity of the pain, or the arduous task one finds oneself in is a direct reflection on the value of the result.

OK...back to writing.

Thank God for Belgian beer. The Trappist Monks seem to be my guide in this book!
