I have never done it...done what?? Blogging! I have resisted it for years, something about my past life I think. I did a past life regression once, whether you are in to that or not, and found out that I was a famous author and my works had been stolen. There was no internet in those days, just paper and ink I guess and once someone grabbed those writings, that would be it! No back up copy, maybe the loose thoughts of what was in your brain, would be all that you had. You also did not sell books in those days, you would use your writings to carry out lectures and hope that some of it would stick with the masses. Bizarre that I would have that thought, so somehow this had an impact on my life in the 21st century and I have not been sure if it was worth writing at all. They do say don't they that everyone has a book inside of them. Now, I am not sure anymore whether people will still wish to read books in the future or am I being naive? With the explosion of technology and pads and smart phones everywhere you look, twitter, facebook, youtube and blogging sites, why would you have to read a book from cover to cover, when you can learn so much more in soundbites? I am sure the bookworms amongst you will be shouting and screaming, NO! And I would have to agree that there always will be time when you just want to get lost in someone else's world and their brave journey, because for some reason someone else's journey is so much more interesting then our own.
Well I have decided I am going to have a go and do some writing, about what I have no idea yet. My initial view is that it is going to be a mixture of my own philosophy and technology. I know its a strange combination but they are both dear to me and I believe there is a lot to be said about how we as a human race are combining the two in the way that we conduct our lives these days. They are totally inter-related and have a major impact on each other. How exactly I need to figure out as yet, but I am sure it will come as I start typing inside this lovely blog.
I am looking forward to it and I am equally looking forward to your views and comments, as a good conversation and debate will be fun as well.
Ok that's all for now.
