On the 21st September 2004 I wrote the first post on this personal blog. Over the years its focus has been on many things and its name has changed. I have been local and global in concern, both flippant and in-depth. The one constant being me, whether I was stuck in Milton Keynes or waiting for my tea to go cold.
Now I am entering a new phase. A lot has happened in my life recently, and changes precipitate others. So, as this is a special blog birthday, it’s time to make a change. I will still remain one voice in seven billion, but I will no longer be offering an insignificant opinion. A special friend told me I wasn’t insignificant and that is true. Each of us is significant in our own unique way.
Now, as I enter the next year of blogging and living and pilgrimage and creativity I thought it time to focus on what is currently most important in my personal yatra. Creativity has always part of me. I feel alive when I am writing or making music. Minimalism, or living with only what I need, or require, is also a central tenet to me. Therefore, a creative minimalist is what I am, and I will share my journey here.
In the meantime, happy birthday blog, it’s been an interesting decade, let’s make this next year a creative and minimal one.
