Well, it’s a short while since I completed the ‘About’ page and I guess a few things have adjusted in my life since then.
If you want to see more about me in a quick way, connect with me on LinkedIn and check out my Profile.
Life is always changing – and now I am more philosophical, more resigned, more laissez-faire and perhaps more hopeful than even six months ago (when I started this blog).
One of my ambitions – which I haven’t yet realised with this blog – is to do a lot more creative writing. I used to write poetry, and I have always thought that I should try my hand at a novel. I realise this is not a new ambition; but as a teacher the number of times I ask students to attempt things that I would balk at is embarrassing. When I actually do say ‘Right, I’m doing this too’, I struggle as much as them. Sometimes more so.
Another area that I am starting to get more interested in is blogging in general. I nearly picked up an expensive book in Waterstones the other day which had WordPress and Themes or something in the title. Nearly… I have noticed how much time can be absorbed by fiddling around trying to do things on a blog. How useful is this, I wonder? I don’t know. But I do know that it’s addictive. If anyone has any helpful tips for me to improve this blog I am very happy to hear them. Just drop me a line or comment on this page.
I may start adding a few more pages with the occasional poem that I have composed, or piece of creative writing. Look for these along the top of my blog, and if you don’t see any appear, badger me for them.
Another way of finding out more about me would be by following this link and listening to or downloading ‘What are our values’ and other talks from King’s Gate Church podcast. I hope you enjoy it if you do!
