Reasons to be cheerful (Ian Dury & The Blockheads 1979)

I write not in the hope of achieving fame or fortune, I know the potential for either is infinitesimal, but for the simple pleasure it gives me, the satisfaction I get as each chapter is finished and the joy of reading the finished work. Selfish perhaps, yet by sharing the results of my efforts, there is always the possibility that others might find that I’m not entirely egotistical.
