Why am I blogging?

In my old age I find I’ve become quite opinionated but I also understand that I’m not the fountain of all knowledge. I want to use this blog to record my thoughts and opinions and maybe invite some discussion.

I appreciate that my views have some very obvious influences and even in my own writing I see concepts and opinions which have obviously come from some well known, and some not so well known, people. I apologise in advance for any obvious rehashing of other ideas, if I remembered who’d had them I’d quote them 🙂
