  • Sun, 12:08: Currently investigating doing an MA in philosophy with a leaning towards ecology and the environment. Still early days -- funding and all that -- but I need to understand, as best I can, why, in the face of the climate catastrophe, so little is happening.

  • Thu, 19:16: What if we called ourselves artists?
  • Thu, 19:24: My late uncle Adrian was the most inspiring artist of my life. He left school an outcast and then went on to lecture at Plymouth School of Art and Design in printing and bookbinding. I don't have many heroes but he's right up there. No BS and an amazing human being.

  • Fri, 09:47: I see from a few things that keep popping into my LinkedIn timeline that the idea of a restorative business seems (all of a sudden) flavour of the month. For what it's worth, I'm not sure a business can ever swim in that pond. And I don't just mean the resources it consumes.

  • Wed, 16:37: "Yes, but what do you think?" In an ocean of information (little insight sadly), it's hard to know what's our idea or someone else's.

  • Wed, 18:33: It's a long time ago now but all my parents wanted for me was to get a job - any job was good enough. How things have moved on for my children. "Do the thing that makes your heart sing." And I don't say this to be righteous but I see their genius rather than as cogs in a machine.
  • Wed, 18:58: Why does music light my soul?
  • Wed, 20:03: I've lost my appetite. I reckon I'm down to about 800 calories. No idea why.
  • Thu, 05:52: “People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” ― Carl R. Rogers, A Way of Being
  • Thu, 08:41: The history of philosophy has absorbed me good and proper right now.
