Writing

I simply rely on doing honest learning and thinking, and letting it come out on the page or on air. Where I can see the possibility (I hope this will be ever more common), I try to find new material, both through requesting documents, and through looking at old ones anew.

From time to time, through a happy combination of need, curiosity and chance, I have come across a number of facts, experiences, values… some of them are mentioned in my bio… which at times have led me off the broad way in life. To keep banging on about them can at times be to gain a reputation as intellectually and socially not quite reputable. As far as that goes, I just have to rely on whatever mite of reason I have. By now, for me it is a simple choice to keep banging on about them, to decline the easy option to keep shtum, both because these things are more likely to provide “solutions” to our common ailments, and also because they are at once true and more adventurous to think about.

Of course, many things are not as exciting as all that, which is fine too. This website exists simply so that no material close to me has to be thrown through any forbidding transom.
