Behold, All is Vanity and Vexation of Spirit
I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
As I suppose is not too uncommon with young people of a certain age, when I was young I was keen to ‘make a difference’.
It was not really about amassing a huge amount of wealth, although money would have been nice.
I suppose I was inspired by the times when I would attend Monday night Lectures at the Royal Geographical Society.
Each talk was so impressive and supported by so many amazing photographs.
Of course over the years, the process of lectures became very professional, but I was not always in favour of the PowerPoint progress and missed the times when the great and the good used to shout “Slide” every time they wanted the image to move onto the next; something which I used to think added to the charm of the place.
