The Pearl (Recommended Reads)

Recommended Reads: The Pearl by John Steinbeck My rating: 4 of 5 stars John Steinbeck is perhaps most remembered for ‘Of Mice and Men’.

The Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe My rating: 5 of 5 stars It’s surprising how many short novels can create such an impact.

Social media – To leave or not to leave?

If it doesn’t have an internet presence, does it exist? Ah, the validation we seek. I’d been pondering over social media for a long time – whether I should leave it and make more of time, its positives and harms etc and until mid 2015 I think Facebook, for me, was the big one. I’d…

Back online (Blog Post)

It’s been a while since I wrote on this space. I impulsively decided to register a new domain and play about with the website, like some niggling unsettling subconscious until it was done. We’ll just pretend I’ve been really busy living an enriched and productive life to notice, rather than address that it was never really missed…
