People from the past

I think an understanding of the concepts in history is something that really sets humans aside from other species. I think science and technology and communication are really important too.

Life, loss and friendship 

This blog usually focuses on ‘worthy’ issues and I’ve posted things before that I thought might be interesting linking to my personal ethos or things of professional relevance.
