It seems that this is the way to record random thoughts and musings, as well as give vent to the occasional rant and generally let off steam. No more dark secrets because they are stress builders and stress is the curse of our generation. In short, whatever you feel or think, just “blog” it…
It amazes me how this Luddite and anti-microchip stalwart is slowly but surely being dragged into this world of chippies, bits and bytes. The ironic thing is that he is kicking and screaming less and less. In fact it’s hardly a whimper now.
This fancy ‘big’ and ‘smart’ computing machine now has a wonderful new partner, my Epson Perfection V700, a semi-pro flatbed document and film scanner. Though I’m still a learner driver on all these ‘smart’ tools, I have managed to upload some of my 40+ years worth of photography. I hope that in the near future to be able to broadcast my own website displaying my 40 years of endeavour, as well as sharing with you a few highlights of my design career.
Besides all this ‘sharing/ego airing’, I’ll be throwing out those random thoughts that have collected in my head over 63 years of living and people watching. A little of my home grown philosophies and such.
And all this has been made possible by this new technology/tool, which if used correctly can be an extremely powerful weapon in our world of ignorance and pettiness. On the other hand, it is a double edged sword that is misused and abused to spread hatred, impatience, intolerance and general mayhem.
So to sum up, I am adapting myself to this cyber world in order to pass on my thoughts etc. in the hope that it will be at least an iota of sunshine and optimism in this darkening world of ours.
It will also be an insight into my world and an insight into this guy who has popped into and out of many people’s lives, is still there in the background of many others whilst being in the forefront of a number.
