Before this blog I’d never written for people who weren’t contractually obliged to read my words. Design specs, data migration plans and screen designs – these were my deliverables – and any attempt to insert humour or entertainment into them was frowned upon by management.
The crafting of words is a task that helps me to craft my ideas and understand what’s wrong about some of the things that trouble me. That’s probably one of the main reasons I write. I sent some of my writings out by email and on Facebook. and then due to public demand (actually, just one person) started my own blog.
I hope you enjoy these articles, and encourage you to comment and share – since good dialogue not only informs us all; but helps me seem less of an idiot to friends.
A bit more about me
I live and work in London. My nine-year old son lives with his mother but also spends a goodly amount of time with me, too. I may have had a rotten day, but I seem to be able to remind myself of something he has said and done, and lo-and-behold, there’s a smile on my face. Sometimes he asks me to tell him something about science or maths; and I love doing this – as I love him. I now understand what Victor Hugo meant when he said, “To love another person is to see the face of God”, even though I am an atheist.
I may mention him in other posts and pages, but I will avoid waxing lyrical about my son on any page or post other than this one. This is my promise to you.
