About my blog

The author is a former award-winning newspaper journalist, wannabe novelist, project manager and general dogsbody who often lies awake at night musing about his experiences in life with all their wonderful and mundane, painful, joyful and funny intricacies. My own journey of self-discovery, perhaps?

I suppose Leo Rosten and Henry Miller sum it up best:

Henry: The only thing one can do is follow himself… dig in, discover what he is, and who he is, and reveal himself.

Leo: A writer writes not because he is educated but because he is driven by the need to communicate. Behind the need to communicate is the need to share. Behind the need to share is the need to be understood. The writer wants to be understood much more than he wants to be respected or praised or even loved. And that perhaps, is what makes him different from others.

Hope you enjoy my scribblings!

  1. Once again I have posted an acknowledgement, acceptance and appreciation of a fresh bunch of Awards that the “Ben Naga” site has been offered. To see details, go to http://bennaga.wordpress.com/2012/06/01/a-quartet-and-an-oxymoron/.
    The reason I am informing you of this is that your site is included in the list of my nominees to continue the chain(s). My post contains details of what you need to do if you wish to participate.

    I recognise that several folk may wish to say “Thanks, but no thanks”. If you are among them, let me repeat a slightly rephrased version of what I wrote there: –

    “I know several people featured here don’t like to participate in the offering and receiving of awards. No blame; indeed I may join you one day. Meantime, if an unwanted invitation arrives at your site please ignore it, beyond knowing that it was sent to demonstrate the esteem in which I hold you and your site.”

Tell me what you think!
