Welcome to my new site
Hello and welcome to something slightly less amateurish than the old page which just sort of directed you to my Myspace. Remember Myspace? That was, like, 2006 - the year of Orson, Sandi Thom and Shakira's hips not lying.
Life was simple then. But now people play video games by waving their arms, I have a fridge with an ice dispenser which needs to be plumbed in, and so many things only make sense when I write them down. Am I becoming a writer, or a blogger, or just getting old?
If love is the answer, what was the question?
I've started a blog and podcast here on how Jesus is my source of peace, without which I couldn't be very chilled.
Now I know some people link God more with conflict than peace, and that's a real challenge. What does it mean to get peace from God? That's what I've been discussing with friends, and you are invited to join in the conversation here, soon.
I need to get my balance between rest and work a bit better, i.e. more rest.
So not much more to say on this page.
Another day at the office
I used to be an employee for one company, and life was simple.
Now I'm employed in three jobs, and freelancing for more. I'm seeing a lot of stressed people in a difficult year, and still working out myself how best to use time. Building relationships, looking for opportunities, trying to share the ideas and experiences which are making a difference - it's fun. Often unprofitable. Could I ever go back to 9-5?
Our neighbours are great!
My wife Helen and I live in The Dings, a part of central Bristol which used to be surrounded by industry. This made the people feel isolated, but they stuck together.
Now the area is redeveloping with new houses, we're a warm welcome point for a lot of new people. I'll tell you about some of the amazing people around here in my blog.
