I come to the idea of writing a blog with mixed feelings - do I have anything interesting to say? But some people seem to think I should, and it is not as if I lack the time to write it. If it is satisfying, I shall continue, and if it is not, I will not.
Who am I? I am English, male and in my mid twenties. I am a recent convert from Paganism to Roman Catholicism, entering RCIA just after Candlemas 2009, baptised on December 10th 2009 and received into the Church on Easter Sunday 2010.
I am currently undergoing treatment for complications arising from a congenital heart defect which flared up in March 2010. I have, it must be said, an awful lot of time on my hands.
These, then, are the basics.
