    Haiku is normally 5/7/5 syllables but I still could be wrong. As I get older I have more random memories pop into my head but I guess that is a function of as you get older you have more memories. The irony is that for many the closer you are to death the less memories you have. As I get older one of the very few regrets I have is not having a diary – but now there is facebook. One of the greatest pleasures I have had is in my younger days, having sent postcards to you Andy, and you having collected them and then giving them back to me was the reigniting of forgotten incidents. I still have them.

      Yeah, shows how much Ian Fleming knew about haiku. I forget the context but Bond is responding to someone quoting haiku to him and he makes one up on the spot.

      Glad I didn’t throw any of those out, John. I’m a bit of packrat with paper. Be interesting to many I think if you scanned those cards and posted them on your Facebook account.
