Hello, I know I'm greeting you from Venice or near there, but I was brought up in the UK .... My home town was Walsall in the Middlands, home of Jerome K. Jerome and his Three Men in a Boat. In fact I lived quite near Caldmore where he was born. When young I was a novice in a convent for a while... but I always said I was there under false pretences... it's a long story. In fact that's what I write about, religious vocations because I find it fascinating. However, enough of me for now, I'd like to get to know some of you and what you get up to... especially here.
