About me

Gender Male
Location New Forest Coast, Hampshire, United Kingdom
Introduction Born in the east end of London. Decided early on, to resist the growing up bit while living in various parts of west Hampshire and the New Forest, making that relentless transition from innocent boy to wannabe man in waiting. Still resisting. Still holding out. Still a rebel to convention and conformity. Still me. A background in architectural design, having run and marketed my own design and build business for many years. Stocked with a broad range of diverse interests and curiosity’s for subjects and issues that continually fly across my radar, not just to help preserve and stimulate my colourful imagination and naturally creative grey matter, as much as to keep the embers of life glowing safely and constantly deep inside, for a good number of decades to come as yet. I truly enjoy dialogue with just about any blogger who has a pulse. Without a bit of civilised comment chat now and again, I probably wouldn’t bother blogging at all. Your gender, age, politics, sexuality and religious beliefs, are of no consequence to me what so ever. It’s all part of the rich diversity that makes us not just bloggers, but hopefully, liberated, card carrying members of the human race.
