About me

Gender MALE
Location Brockville, Ontario, Canada
Introduction The blog title is from the Bob Dylan song Visions of Johanna - "Ain't it just like the night to play tricks when you're trying to be so quiet?" The purpose of the blog is to share my thoughts and impressions as I continue my Sisyphean endeavour to discover a Unified Theory of Peter's Life.
