Its impossible to learn history without developing an impression of where you stand on the issues at stake. Happily, we almost never have to deal with the views we've formed, because history stays exactly where it's meant to be. Today, history came visiting, and I had to review the happy self-deceptions I'd created. Weirdly, I ended up feeling positive and even happy about it. Am I comfortable to review my theories? Perhaps not. Sort of happy, sort of lonely, mainly just surprised how placid I've become.
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
