I never know where to begin.
This page is supposed to give you an introduction to me, but how do you start something like that? I mean, if it were a social gathering and I approached you and started giving you my life story, you would think I was mad. And then walk away, muttering to yourself about the lunatics in the world!
I am, by design, somewhat mad. Not mad angry, just mad and slightly out of sync with reality. That’s a bit ironic seeing as my blog is about reality. I see things from a different perspective and my views can sometimes upset people. I don’t mean to be controversial, I just say what I think and then usually write about it. I guess that’s part of an introduction; at least you know where you stand now.
I used to be a prolific writer. I am ill and sometimes I am unable to do very much of anything apart from drool and doze off – not necessarily in that order! I still think about writing and sometimes sit and write articles in my head, only to forget them an hour later! I started to use a notebook to keep track of my thoughts, but kept on forgetting where I left it!! Pretty pathetic really!
I served in the British Army for nearly twenty three years and only left because I got hurt and became disabled. I have traveled the world and seen the worst of what mankind can do; to each other and to their countries. I have been horrified by sights that should never be seen and humbled by sights that aren’t seen enough. I have met people from different cultures and beliefs and taken an interest in them all. I am naturally curious.
I had previous blogs, one with WordPress and the other with Blogger. Both sites are linked on the menu and if you would like to understand a little about how I think and see things then I would recommend visiting them and having a good read.
I decided to start blogging on my own website mainly because I was rapidly running out of space on WordPress. Also, I didn’t like them using my blog for advertising. I cannot stand it when an advert ruins a page and so I will strive to ensure that doesn’t happen here. I doubt that I will write as much as I used to but I will do my best. I hope you enjoy what I write and recommend me to others. I look forward to any and all comments and will reply to all. I am not the type of person that believes that they know everything and their way is the right way. I love to learn and if I make mistakes, I will learn from them.
That’s enough from me. You haven’t really learned much about me but you should have an inkling of what to expect from this blog. I think that by reading my scribblings you may get a deeper insight into who I am.
