Life Before Basil

August 20th, 2014

I can hardly remember it, but people ask a lot, so I wrote down the story, and posted it as a new page here on the blog.  It’s kind of a The-Path-to-Basil post.


The best part is the way it ends:  Irresistible, irrepressible Basil changes my life!

(tl;dr for the Before Basil page: It’s never too late to find your bliss.  Or to get moving!)

    When asked why he enjoyed cycling, Robin Williams said that it was the closest you can get to flying.

    Good to see the “Life before Basil” post, just as it has been good to see all the other blog posts (starting with the pre-Basil excitement). Thanks for all the fun.

    just the pic of Basil should elicit comments.

    Was there really life before Basil, or was it all just a journey to the promised land?

      Getting to this very late, owing to various exigencies here — and hoping, Saul, that you’ll be back in the saddle sooner rather than later.

    God bless Basil.

      Basil’s a heavenly creature, no doubt. I hope you’ll love your new Brompton, when it arrives, just as much, Scott!
