Start Here

I’m blogging at substack for a while. Sign up here:

This started as a project to give me something to do during chemo. Once I settled back into normal life I went back to blogging and the blog started picking up readers.

Now that’s you. Thanks for being here. To help you move around I’ve listed a few blogs you might want to go to first.

The idea of the blog is that us and our lives – the things that happen to us – are less interesting than ideas, books and events.

Hopefully what you find here will prompt a dinner-table discussion, reinforce or refute something you think or believe, or just get you reading something else.

Do get in touch in comments or on the contact page with feedback, requests etc.
