“I write publicly because I think that despite myself, someone out there may find the experience I have and things I know interesting or helpful. It’s more of a Karma thing I suppose.”

I know I wax lyrical about how I don’t like being published. I’m not selling myself well here, am I? Well, I suppose that is the point. I’m not trying to. I write, because despite my limitations such as ‘talent’, I write for the sheer pure and undiluted joy of it. Not the art or the craft. No, just because I jolly well like to do it.

The simple neural and spiritual communication between thought, soul and heart rendered real via your fingers on a keyboard, to me, is utterly magical. I don’t think the point of writing is publication, I think the point of it is simply soulful. Joyful if you will. I don’t need someone to say if they think I’m good or bad… I don’t even really need to have anyone at all. I write for my own personal enjoyment.

All of the above does of course beg two questions: 1. why do a blog then, muppet? and 2. why have a page showing the stuff you’ve published then?! Argh!

Well, to answer the first, I write my blog because I like to. I don’t really care if anyone else likes what I do, although that is a bonus and I am happy if others do. I write publicly because I think that despite myself, someone out there may find the experience I have and things I know interesting or helpful. It’s more of a Karma thing I suppose.

The second is simply this: I need a place I can find it all. I could write it on a bit of paper and leave it on Dropbox, but then, I like to record things in numerous places and this is one of them. It’s for my own purposes really. I’m just going to put my Limebird stuff on here, the odd bit or indeed bob that I’ve done elsewhere… nothing to make you’re head fall off or anything.

If you’re desperate, I suppose you could have a look at what I’ve published elsewhere (above)…. but that’s up to you fair, beautiful and kind reader.
