Hello There. This is I.
I’m a Writer.
I believe most of us are being played.
(Read ‘Creating Freedom’ by Raoul Martinez)
That’s my boat over there on the right, I built her myself, in a barn far from the sea.
Let’s just call it productive insanity eh?
She’s called ‘Gleda’ and if you’re interested you can find out more HERE.
I’M A JACK OF ALL TRADES – a Renaissance Man, Polymath, Multipotentialite,
I’m proud of that, Jacks (and Jills) of all trades get bad press. Folks forget the full rhyme goes like this:
“Jack of all trades, master of none, though oft times better than master of one!”
I believe that being multi-skilled, innovative, knowledge-seeking, exploratory and multi-purposeful is a good thing. I’m too complex to categorise.
The ”Dean of science fiction writers” Robert A. Heinlein once said –
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyse a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialisation is for insects.”
MY PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENTS (So Far)
See, I told you.
I was taught English by Craig Thomas, at King Edward VI Grammar School, Lichfield.
He later wrote 18 books including the novel ‘Firefox’, which was made into a movie starring Clint Eastwood.
He passed away in 2011, but I shall always be indebted to him for sparking my passion for reading and writing.
