Another Quaker commitment?
Will you join the Quaker alphabet blog project? she asked. A hesitation in my mind. What does this mean? As I get older I get more possessive of my time. I have already refused to join one of the many of Brighton's philosophical/cultural/arty talk shops, because I have spent too much of my life talking and going round in circles and ending up further back on the circumference than when I began. So another project? I sit lightly nowadays with labels and here I am with a Quaker label. When I was young I had to wear a hat to keep my head covered - that's what orthodox Jews did. Now I hate wearing hats. And I have no desire to wear the Quaker broad-brim. Still I'll give it a try. Keep the mind open - old men should remain explorers. What on earth will begin with A. Activism? Apathy? Antediluvian speculation on the nature of divinity. Well, let's see.
