One Man's Year
The last days of any year are more than usually filled with memories. It is in the nature of things. The reward of trying to look back with detached and clinical curiosity at the end of a fixed period of time, is that every so often a distinctive pattern of impression and experience emerges from a chaos of untidy and unrelated incidents. At this point of revelation existence becomes life!
Sometimes we have a 'vintage' year; one finds oneself flung about the globe, and at the receiving end of so many new ideas that one's mind can hardly take it all in. Such a year 1964 has been for me. In the course of twelve months I set foot in sixteen countries (one of which was England), spent Christmas in Bethlehem, Easter in Russia, sat in the lowest sea upon earth, stood on the highest building, threw snowballs in Bucharest, and cooked breakfast on a log fire in Canada, sun-bathed on Long Island, and paddled in Bannock Burn.
Most of my journeying was by air, so I brought back the lightest souvenirs I could - gramophone records. I hope to share some of these with you in One Man's Year.
