I am male, 47, a writer, born and currently resident in Colombo, Sri Lanka, though I've been around a bit. I'd rather *not* have my location mentioned
in my Introduction because it's a very small town. Thank you very kindly.
I'm interested in everything (see job description above). I used to work in advertising, where magpie minds are scandalously well rewarded.
What I hope to find on this discussion board is a civilized way of learning from (and about) people who think differently from myself.
I hope I can offer in return some reasonably intelligent ideas and an interesting read. Properly spelled and punctuated, too, at least when I'm
I'm not keen to push any lines of my own. I'm not sure I have any. I have views, of course. I'm a political liberal of the classic English variety, a
very hard thing to be in Sri Lanka. I studied physics at university and my outlook is scientific and skeptical. I was raised as a Christian but am no
longer religious. Most Sri Lankans are Buddhists and a little bit of the philosophy rubs off on the rest of us -- which doesn't explain why we seem so
bent on killing one another off.
I like children and animals, but then, so did Hitler.
Looking forward to hearing from you, etc.
