I want to do something different; so I did! I thought my books were rather too long (‘prolix’) and my ‘blogs’ limited to only one featured image? Publishing and printing in small numbers is exorbitant and they don’t sell well anyway. This is my compromise solution. My spouse Sarah was also a trite anxious I was about to burst out in print again; just when she’s trying to economise on space and eliminate ‘stuff’! I could be next; another COVID refugee? I think you’ll get the drift?
I decided on the title on a whim. Originally I thought of ‘Monographs’; which they are? I wanted to celebrate and record for posterity individuals in the thoroughbred industry I respect, revere and remember; for all the right reasons. I knew all of them. I thought vicariously I could both enhance and enrich their collective memory with modules or ‘digestible chunks of learning’? I trust the title captures both the premise and the promise.
