Lionel Bart's Musical interpretation of Charles Dicken's novel, Oliver Twist, simply entitled 'Oliver!' has the criminal ring leader Fagin, considering his options when confronted by a change in circumstances. The version I always think of has Ron Moody in the role of Fagin, hunched, crooked nosed and grubby in attire and demeanour "Reviewing the situation," prior to making his next move.
That's the gist of my absence for the last few months. I'm working on a shift in emphasis regarding the naughty old bird and a move to a more considered approach to the writing and blogging.
Life, bless it - it's a damn sight better than the alternative - has a way of chucking a spanner in whatever works you have going on and sitting back to watch the resulting antics.
The situation reviewing continues, it's just taking longer than originally anticipated.
It might be a couple of steps forward and one back, but then the progress inches forward.
Keep smiling, people will wonder what you are up to, and have a good day, wherever you are.
