The way this site started was when I started to log the activities of a group Anne and I were forming at church. I wanted to record what was going on at the time and found that I enjoyed writing about the activities more than the activities themselves.
This developed to the extent that I was writing more broadly about more general topics. This has culminated in my attempting to write a book.
There will be excerpts from the book published on this site as well as other ideas and musings.
Most of the posts are in the writing category as I have imported the original blog posts in here so it’s worth a look back through the posts if you have the time to spare.

- I taught myself a new word today - autodidact. Clearly, my attempts at self-education were not as rigorous as I had previously presumed them to have been. You are never too old to learn something new.
