On March 12th, 2008 I started a simple blog with the purpose of peering above the wall of conventional thinking to see what was out there. Over the years I have disappeared down a number of rabbit holes, any of which could have beguiled me for a lifetime. I have always been determined to keep my sense of humour while questioning everything, even the stuff that ‘feels’ safe and right.
My spiritual, political and personal outlooks have shifted, sometimes subtly and sometimes to the point I feel I barely recognise the person I once was. No matter how good your intentions, you don’t get to 54 without making mistakes. Some of these mistakes were so big that they still reverberate decades after the fact. I am not perfect. I do not have all the answers. However, I have lived an eclectic life.
When I write, despite being crippled by dyslexia and without the trophies of academia, I feel I have something worthwhile to say. Something born from a heart and mind that refuses to just go with the flow. The road less travelled is a bumpy one, but boy it does have some amazing vistas, not to mention some stupidly amusing dells.
I hope you consider following me on my journey, as life continues to take twists and turns that even I cannot yet foresee.
Thanks for reading.
Your support is much appreciate, it helps to bring my thoughts to a whole host of new people, I must confess to being very poor at self promotion as growing up blowing ones own trumpet was not believed to be the ‘done thing.’
