Welcome to my site. I write fiction – mostly sci-fi stories, work as a trainer as my main paid work and spend a lot of time sorting things out and working out how to do things better. This may be because I appear to be on a quest to discover the best ways of focusing my time and attention. Being interested in so many things I need to get the most out of the limited number of hours in the day and do my best to keep focused and stop just flitting from idea to idea.
This is an ongoing process which I have by no means mastered. Writing this blog is the logical outcome of that struggle.
You can read my stuff here on this site. If you want to know more click here.
Here are two of my favourite quotes:
First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me.Dietrich Bonhoeffer
The worst illiterate is the political illiterate, he doesn’t hear, doesn’t speak, nor participates in the political events. He doesn’t know the cost of life, the price of the bean, of the fish, of the flour, of the rent, of the shoes and of the medicine, all depends on political decisions. The political illiterate is so stupid that he is proud and swells his chest saying that he hates politics. The imbecile doesn’t know that, from his political ignorance is born the prostitute, the abandoned child, and the worst thieves of all, the bad politician, corrupted and flunky of the national and multinational companies.Bertolt Brecht
