James S Newcomb Lang
Biography of James S Newcomb Lang
I am an ordinary man, but with an abundance of passion. I write because it gives me pleasure to do so and because I enjoy words in both the written and oral form. I have known euphoria and I have known pain. I have seen and heard things that I wish I hadn't. My mind is my own nemesis, as I cannot switch it off. I usually find sleep difficult! I have served and been in conflict. I still believe in true love. My pet hate, is people promoted beyond their ability (The Peter principle) .

At peace just now, but will it last?
