Varied Surroundings

There is more to being human than travelling around the world sampling its many delights, and recent reading has taken me deeper into subjects like philosophy. Though I am a scientist by training, the humanities continue to appeal to me, and various life events have led me to explore them more than otherwise might have been the case. That is now the main thrust of what you find here, along with other things that have a use in navigating life’s journey.


One of the things that has struck me about Wales is how many know each other. It does appear that a certain sense of community that has been lost from other parts of Britain still soldiers on there. I might have put it down to my passing through rural communities that are away from the beaten track, but I have noticed that it exists down the valleys in the south of the principality too. Welsh is spoken a lot too and my grasp of the language is very limited, so many conversations could be going on in my presence without my understanding their contents even if I were to overhear them. Even so, I am sure that various events and happenings are part and parcel of what gets discussed. In line with that sentiment, here are a few collections of websites sharing the news for all of Wales and its individual areas. I hope that they have their uses, if only for making conversation.
