Where am I going with this?
That, I have recently discovered, is not a straightforward question. In the context of this blog, given that I created it less than two months ago, recent is very recent indeed.
I have, as some of you know, blogged before. Some of you will also be aware that I have a couple of photography blogs; one that is “family friendly/safe for work” and another that is decidedly less so.
When I restarted this blog back in April, I had some clear ideas of what I intended to use it for. Things have happened in that short time that have made me reconsider. I’m still the same person, but I’m not entirely in the same place. None of those things are of any particular importance to anyone who isn’t me, so I’m not going to bore or burden you with them. They have, however, caused me to re-evaluate a few things in my life.
If that sounds all very deep and mysterious, I can assure you that it most definitely not.
So, what is this blog for?
If you follow me on Twitter, then you will know that I will discuss pretty much any topic; sometimes seriously, often with (my particular warped sense of) humour, frequently with irony, sometimes irreverently, but mostly with the perspective of a guy in his mid-to-late forties who has lived with depression since his teens. Twitter is basically where I go to “howl at the moon”. This blog is, to a greater or lesser extent, an extension of that. Sometimes I have thoughts that require more than 280 characters to express them. They may not be particularly deep or meaningful thoughts; the majority of time, I suspect, they won’t mean very much to anyone other than me, and you are free to read them and engage with them, or not, as you choose.
To all intents and purposes, this blog is really my brain’s scrapbook, and I invite you to flick through its pages as I add to it.
