Dear Lady,
I hope things are well with yourself and pick-up for you this year. it's been a rough year and a half for me. Things are picking up though. I'm absolutely ploughed under with work on my site which is getting programmed right now. It will take some time but then I want to get it right. I'm developing about another 28 games which I'm kind of 3 qualters of the way through on to make my site more diverse. It's good that things are taking longer as I want them too. Besides wishing to meke films , I'm also looking at opening a publishing house, It's kind of coming together a lot now. It's better when I pace myself. However even though I got worn out a lot and it took it's toll on me doing the 43 books I've written and 19 finished games I had to push myself there as I would not have got them done. I'm looking at a new way of working to enjoy doing the work again so that i@m not it's prisoner, it's slave if you know what I mean. I kind of want to live life for myself and not the work so much just now...I don't want to die for my art it won't die for me....
Sorry to have droned on about my stuff, I'm really interested in what your doing and would really love to hear from you again. Although i do understand that the pressures of life can overtake us sometimes and so it's not always as easy as all that to reply straight away to people. Please drop me a line wheen you can, if you would to let me know how you are getting on and how your work is going. If you are doing alright with the cafe. Have to sign off just now. Having to use other people's computers just now so it's been frantic because of this for the past 1.5 years. All the Best, God Bless you A. x . Chris

"If you are doing alright with the cafe."

Cafe?

Droning is just fine :), but you're going to have to remind me of how we met, because I'm absolutely terrible at remembering names. Once you've done that, that will help me to dig up your e-mail address so that I can drop you a line.
