About Me

Hello and welcome. Or as acclaimed short story writer James Thurber gave as a title to one of his collections: “My World and welcome to it”.

Here, you are all welcome to all the delights and possibilities that this blog can provide. That means an eclectic mix from film to fine art, TV to travel and literature to London’s coolest attractions. Not to mention cool mentions of music, theatre and sport and whatever fun and interesting stuff in-between. If art is anything you can get away with, then this blog is all about what is worth reading.

So whether you are reading this on a train on the way to work, during your lunch break or else somewhere more relaxing, sit back and enjoy. There’ll be regular updates in all kinds of formats for whatever is worth seeing, hearing, feeling or tasting past or present. Not to mention plenty of space if you want to tell me what you think.

Live, love, enjoy. 

Yes, the above books are mine 😀 If you’re interested in having a look, that’s great. The links are below, where you’ll find a blurb for each, as well as Amazon reviews.

The Summer of Madness
Illusions, Delusions

You can also find my personal website here. Why not take a look? 🙂
