"Do not go gentle into that good night, ....................................... Rage, rage against the dying of the light."

Background Information

I write to keep myself from dying of boredom, for I can't see what's so wonderful about this life on earth. And I try to publish for it's the only bulwark against my oppressors, and these are legion, very varied, and wholly determined. I have had only four years' of haphazard schooling, and the rest (including the highest French doctorate from the Sorbonne), I plucked mainly extra-murally. My working life began at nine and still continues in retirement. I get the feeling from my reading that the only things new I've ever learned have their origin in psychology, quantum mechanics, and astro-physics. My major influences I'd say come from having listened to all kinds of music, far from deafening applause. As for books, among the many,I'd pick "Don Quijote de la Mancha", Shakespeare's major tragedies, "Candide", "Gulliver's Travels", and the like. There's nothing like a literary master-piece. Not even Creation.


Birth Place
Kuala Krai,  Malaysia

I don't feel I have really achieved anything as yet, apart from bringing up a son, all by myself, in the midst of those who think a child is an expendable commodity and have handicapped him for life. As a former general practitioner who hadn't seen me for a decade said: " What! Still alive! It's an achievement just to stay alive so long!"
