Welcome to my blog!

I am a 40 something father of two, who has traveled the world with my family from one work assignment to the next. I am a keen photographer and observer of my surroundings. I am continuously pushing myself to learn new skills and deepen my understanding of the world. I have a constant thirst for knowledge and personal improvement.

I truly believe that I will be “Learning Till I Die”

I have been away for a while since losing my creative energy. It has finally returned and so I post again for the first time since 2020. Life has changed quite dramatically for me over the past few years, including being repatriated back to the UK. For the first time since 2007 I find myself no longer an expat.

How am I reintegrating back into my native land?

I started this blog to give myself a place to publish the results of my investigations and thoughts. My mind is continually making new links between the information that I gather – sometimes while I am writing a new post.

My posts are as diverse as I am.

Dyslexia is a strong part of my identify. Dyslexia has made me strong and unique.

The Fire Jump

First and foremost I want my posts to be fun. They will be little windows into my soul. I hope you will find them educational, and maybe even thought provoking or inspiring from time to time.

You should find something of interest each time you stop by.

Life is a journey and we should always be a work in progress.

One thought on “Home

  1. All good points David. Consider writing a gratitude journal, just jotting down a thing you are thankful for that day. I try to find a new thing each time I write. I also encourage Muhammad by asking him three good things of the day, and one thing he learnt that day. He notes it down in a small diary. When we look back we realize that things that we are grateful for and what we learn from are the only ones worth preserving.
    Take care, Love to Henna, Arun, Maya and you.
