There are times when a quick post on Facebook or Twitter doesn’t give enough space to express what is really going on in your mind, or when the fixed formats don’t display photographs adequately. For those times, a personal blog is the answer. Welcome to my blog.

I developed this site at the start of the COVID pandemic in 2020 when most activities were restricted.  The idea was to do something to keep my mind active and as I have always enjoyed messing with computer programs and coding, a website seemed a sensible alternative to watching eternal reruns on TV.  After some research I decided to use WordPress as the foundation for my site. WordPress provides a lot of the basic web administration and coding for content filing, sorting and search functions.  It also adds some constraints but an unexpected benefit is the myriad of gifted (and altruistic) programmers who offer solutions to many of the problems that the amateur blogger encounters.  Those solutions include thousands of different “themes” which tell the WordPress core programs how to display the content.  There are themes (many available free of charge) to meet almost every artistic objective and every website purpose from a simple blog to a photographic gallery or an on-line sales outlet.  

I hope you enjoy the photographs on display and if you read any of the articles, I hope they stimulate your thoughts – positively or negatively!  Drop me a private note from the Contact page if you want to respond, or just add a comment to an article and express your thoughts publicly.
