I have been writing all my life. Just for myself, mostly. Mostly as a proxy for a poor memory. I have been trying to figure out what I’m doing with my life just as long. I have wandered a few different paths – philosophy, international development, fundraising – even emigration. But after a couple of years of crisis, I’ve come to the realisation that the best thing to do with your life is whatever it is that fulfills you. And the one constant I’ve always had is writing.
Though are a few different themes here – mental health, travel, politics, culture – and though this is simply a blog of the subjects that inspire me or compel me to write, there is a loose common thread about crisis and uncertainty and how we can try to weather those anxieties.
