An Introduction


I have just noticed that new bloggers seem to start with their reasons for blogging. I did not: Firstly, GK Chesterton once said something about every man needing his own newspaper, like every man needs a swimming pool; both for swimming about in no doubt, so I have a blog!

And secondly, I have a blog so that I can engage in ecumenical dialogue a la Belloc, who, at their first meeting told Maurice Baring (a non-Catholic son of one of Europe's most celebrated banking houses) that he would certainly go to hell. Twelve years later and Maurice entered the One True Church. Success!

Swimming is very good for the figure. I am sure GKC must have done a lot of it. And Belloc. And yourself?
At any rate, it is good that you do get to have a regular swim in your own blog. I heartily approve!
