One of the most frequent questions that I've received since starting this blog was asking me why I did not have an 'About Me' page. I could justify or excuse this lapse in many ways but there would be no real benefit to me or you in doing so. I do however apologise to those who may have found it rude or otherwise impolite of me not to have properly introduced myself before...
I will take a short moment to introduce my 'About Me' page and provide you with an added perspective on the overall context and motivation behind this blog using the quote below by Eleanor Roosevelt that continues to inspire me:
"Great minds talk about ideas, average minds talk about events, small minds talk about people."
You will be the judge of what kind of mind I am ultimately deserving of but one thing that I can guarantee you today is that I will endeavour never to poison this forum with meaningless talk about people, events or any other 'things'. This blog is also not meant to be about me but about your ideas and those of others.
In this light, while I will be writing a great deal about ideas there can be no guarantee on my part that these will be any good. Furthermore, it is important for me to point out that I discuss ideas and not 'my' ideas as I would have none of my own were it not for the fact that I have and continue to absorb those of thousand others. The best that I can hope to achieve is to deliver a unique perspective.
Your future feedback and patronage of the blog will determine how well I am ultimately able to achieve this. Thank you for stopping by.
