Believe it or not

Convince someone
to believe in an
imaginary
creature who
lives in the sky
and takes an
interest in
the outcome of
football games
and the purchase
of lottery tickets
and the number
of survivors in
airplane crashes,
and you can get
them to believe
in anything.

Age less

Reading the

life stories of

the famous

achievers of

the past and

present, you

reach a point

where they broke

through, became

recognised,

touched by

genius, ranked

among the

immortals of

literature, or

science, or

film, or art.

But my

breakthrough

moments

were papered

over, muffled,

erased from the

historic

photographs.

So I remain

disappointed

and unknown,

and largely

anonymous.
