Portrait of Yours Truly by

Welcome to my new blog. I deleted the old one in a fit of depression and when I was setting this up I discovered that to use my own domain I would have to buy an upgrade, which was depressing!

Anyway, I have no message for humanity, and no desire to tell you how to live your life, but I need an online presence, and don’t understand Facebook, so here I am.

I decided on photographs because like most people I have a camera with me almost everywhere these days. I don’t know if the pictures have any value as art, they are just things that caught my eye.

I have no advice for writers, other than to say you cannot but express yourself, so learn your craft, and just because it means everything to you doesn’t mean it will have any value for others!

As for me, I trained as an actor and worked in community theatre. Now I work in a food bank and write. If you’re very good boys and girls I might, occasionally, share some of my work in progress.

And now… the obligatory, third person, blah, blah, blah…
