There is a back-handed wish associated with the Chinese: may you live in interesting times. That can be how it currently feels in global affairs these days so I started this as a means of dealing with the disquiet that the ongoing upheaval is causing. Since then, other nicer things are being added so I might overhaul things in time. It is god to release oneself from life’s stresses and strains too.
This is where I get to putting anything that gets me going, either good memories from wherever they come and anything concerning from the present. So far, the selection features some pieces dating from better times that did not fit well in the Travel Jottings section where they used to reside. The fragmented nature of the British media landscape, its confused collection of nations and the restoration of Scotland's parliament all feature in this initial collection. There could be more yet, especially given the likely events over the next few years.
