I’m just starting out on my blog adventure so bear with me.

The last couple of years have been ones of drastic change in my life but I’m not going to bore anyone by going through them here.  Suffice it to say I’m coming to terms with my new life and hopefully will be able to do some of the things I’ve always wanted to but never had the time.

I’m interested in what’s going on in the world around me, I don’t think I’ve every got past the stage where I want to make a difference and believe it’s still possible for an individual to change the world (is that good or just silly?).  After all though we are all individuals with our own agenda if enough individuals with similar agendas get together change must follow.

I love art, doing it not just looking, and tend to have somewhat old-fashioned ideas of what should be called art, be it painting, sculpture or any kind of mixed media.  Theatre is great, in the last few years I’ve enjoyed a variety of forms from  Shakespeare to the Hairy Bikers.  My musical tastes are just as varied, I can easily sit and enjoy a Verdi opera or a ‘pop’ concert.  I guess I don’t really fit into any particular box.  In politics I can veer from fairly radical to downright conservative, it all depends on the issue.  Women’s place in the world, environmental issues, hatred of violence and just plain fed-up with the ‘politically correct’ way this country of my is run are all things that tend to get me agitated.

My family life is important to me, it should be important to everyone but that doesn’t seem to be the case these days.  I have a couple of dogs, one eleven years old and the other just a puppy.  Other than that I live a pretty ordinary life.
