I don’t know how many times I’ve committed to re-ignite this blog slash website. And this time might be like all the others where I make a couple of posts and then let it all slip. The only saving grace for me, and eternity I guess, is that the internet is forever (so they say) and my blog will live on in its completeness albeit in some dark, dusty corner never visited.
Now as I approach retirement, in my “trial run” as it were, I want to write more, read more, talk more, think more, and rest more. It might seem odd for an academic – someone who has spent the last 40 years doing all those things, except for the rest, on a daily basis, to want more of those things in retirement. Only time will tell if I succeed. But here, today, I commit to the attempt at least.
