This website has a foot in two camps. The first is software and website design, which the site has been steeped in since I started it in 1999 as my freelancer’s shop window.
Following behind is a broadening range of interests that time gifts me the ability to pursue. These latter include books, art, buildings and our precious and precarious natural world. Photographs lend support where appropriate. This second batch of writing is becoming the site’s principal preoccupation.
The site has broadened and gained bulk as this journey has runs its course and I am surprised by and grateful to those who have encountered my various posts and made contact. Those who know me as a coder know also that I have done time as an English teacher, a passion that predated all the hurly-burly of arrays and variables. I make no excuse for the circularity of things in now investing more time in natural than in machine languages. I recommend this progression to anyone who, like me, has designed and developed software systems.
The menus dotted about this ad-free site should lead you into collections of posts arranged by type. A site map experimentally blurts everything out on a single page. A handful of choice posts appears below. If you get lost, I hope that it will be in thought not in orientation.
