this is a wiki. I just set it up with the user name docog, and i will send the password ( to do with cars and qld) ASAP.

The deal is, as you will soon see, that we can both edit whatever is here, and we can also track versions of the edits.

The down side is that it is public, but who would care? until we have something we want to publicize...then we????

Dear Bill,

As ever, you are right on the money, and so is Tovah, I suspect.

But more than that, I think for us as (dare I say it) intellectuals, the task is to struggle to clarify to articulate what it is that we have learnt, and to pass that on in some way or another.

What I am grappling with at the moment is meaning.

Anyway, just got in from afternoon and night of rehearsals, which was mostly good, but I must get to bed.

Much love,

== Author, 96, proves it's never too late ==

BRICK, N.J. - Into his 90s, decimated by the loss of his beloved wife, and alone at night with the memories of a rough and sad childhood spent battling an alcoholic father and vicious anti-Semitism, Harry Bernstein decided to write.

Bernstein began writing "The Invisible Wall" when he was 93 as a way to deal with his memories and the loneliness he felt after his wife of almost seven decades, Ruby, passed away from leukemia in 2002.

"I didn't know what the heck to do with myself. ... You know when you get into your 90s like I am, there's nowhere else to think except the past. There's no future to think about. There's very little present," says Bernstein, who gets around his New Jersey house slowly, with the aid of a cane, and is the sole survivor in his family. "So you think of the past, particularly at nighttime when you're lying in bed. And it all came back. So I began to write, and I was occupied, and it was really the best therapy I could have had."

Bernstein first sent the finished manuscript to New York publishers but, having no luck, he sent it to the London office of Random House. There the book sat for about a year until it came across the desk of editor Kate Elton, who described it as "unputdownable."
