Patience is a virtue, procrastination a problem!

I'd never consider myself to be a patient soul and I suppose this post is more about procrastination than anything else.

Fifteen years ago I stumbled upon an unusual grave. It had one of those inscriptions that just caught the eye.

From that moment I needed to know more and there began a chase across Europe to Russia as I traced the life of the man buried beneath the intriguing headstone.

So what to do with all that research?

Well I finally got my act together and pitched the idea to a magazine. That was in July. By the end of August the article was emailed off and last week it appeared in print.

In a month's time the article will be added to the magazine's website and I'll add a link then.

Until then...
