My Dear Reader,
Roughly 2000 years ago, the poet Juvenal wrote, “It is difficult not to write satire.” He wasn’t the pioneer of that genre, for it existed a relatively long time before he wrote that oft-quoted dictum. But a truer line, I think, was never written that could be applied to the age in which that poet lived or in which we ourselves live.
But I won’t be writing satire or anything for a little while. Why? Not because it is difficult or not difficult or difficult not to write satire but because I am writing something else and shall be while I am traveling. If it is published, you shall be the first to know.
Greetings from Lviv, Barcelona, Rome and… we shall see.
Thanks for your patience,
H. R. Jakes
