In common with so many of us, I am trying to make sense of the world we live in.

Without wanting to express too much existential angst, this is clearly an era inviting individual reflection and reassessment alongside natural human instincts for personal survival and noble, selfless acts for the benefit of others.

For what they may be worth, I would like over time to share my own thoughts on our world, where we have come from and where we might be headed. I hope what I choose to write may prompt and stimulate constructive engagement in any who chance across it, take the time to read entries that interest them and event to make their own response.  Magpie-like, I am constantly on the search for stimulating articles and varying sources of information and hope the ones I cite are also of interest to readers.
