This is a blog for my 43rd year. Today I turn 42 and I have been waiting for this age since I was about 16 and I learnt that 42 was the answer to life, the universe and everything, according to Douglas Adams, who is one of my writing heroes. So this blog will be a poem a day for the next 365 days of my 43rd year. This is to challenge me to write and share with others so comments are welcome. The title is also a tribute to “Sonnet 43” by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, which is the poem featured on the WJEC GCSE Literature examination, that I have been marking this year.
