As 2017 draws towards a close I find myself living in the interesting times referred to in the (possibly apocryphal) Chinese curse.
I am therefore in the process of actively evaluating my future plans on both a personal and professional level in order to try to find a path forward that will maximise my success and happiness.
This will involve a number of changes to how (and in due course possibly where) I live. As Tupac Shakur eloquently put it in his hip-hop classic Changes
Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live
And let’s change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn’t working so it’s on us to do
What we gotta do, to survive.
This is really intended as an introduction to a number of themes that I hope to touch on in forthcoming but as yet only half-formed and unwritten posts: I have of late and Reboot 5.2, exploring my continuing experience of mid-life existential angst and how I intend to resolve it.
Today is a snowy Sunday in Ellesmere however, and as a small first step I am devoting it to moving my blog to my new WordPress hosting platform and giving it a much needed makeover.
