When I was young, a favourite activity on the way home from school was to stop into a magic shop in a tiny arcade in the centre of Melbourne. Sometimes, if we were lucky, the owner would show a group of us some trick to encourage us to spend some money. I remember specifically standing in that shop one afternoon, agog with its delights when I finally spied a sign on the ceiling that said “what are you looking up here for?”
So I can start posting on this blog only if I am completely honest with the reader and admit that I cannot pretend to offer anything yet. Please look in on me some other time and there might be something here of value … but not just yet.
