Where as much as when.

For me it all began, back in 1962. At the time I was  trying to balance an 5 year Apprenticeship, and its encumberant day school, with further studies at night. Our local library was my study den as well as my peace and quiet.

Walking out one night I noticed a display set up by the American-Australia League. One of the books which I can still see now propped up on its display stand, resplendent in its white dust cover, even amongst the other books on display, caught my eye.

'A Stillness at Appomattox by Bruce Catton'

And that was the begining.....

Regards
