Having passed my biblical span (and a level par score on the golf course of life), and semi-retired, I now have more time to reflect on my career and many blessings.
I am extremely fortunate to have had a stimulating and rewarding professional life (not entirely over yet), which has allowed me to travel widely and to associate with many extraordinary people in many countries. I have recounted some of these adventures in my recently published memoirs, called “The tunnel at the end of the light; my endoscopic journey in six decades”, details of which are attached. In the process of writing and publicizing this book I have reconnected with many friends around the world. This web site and blog are intended to allow me to continue and to progress those connections in a way that I hope will be mutually instructive and fun.
At the same time I rejoice in my family, which now extends to 8 grandchildren and one great grandson. My personal web site (www.petercottontales.com) is designed to keep us close together, despite the physical distances, and to keep track of the adventures of “Fred-Fred”. The first book is called “When Fred the snake got squished and mended”. It will be followed soon by “When Fred the snake goes to school”.
I shall be blogging away to both audiences, and hope to stimulate your interest and responses
