My essays attempt (pun very much intended) to stay true to the original meaning of the word. Sometimes shocking, sometimes quite likely literally sleep-inducing, my essays will attempt in my limited fashion to explore my perspectives on life in a slightly more longer form that Facebook and Twitter might allow.
My intention is to quite literally write about anything of worth as and when it occurs to me. Worth here is defined by something I've found interesting enough to think about and nothing more. This means that if for whatever reason I choose to talk about the wild hairs that have decided to advance their growth from my eyebrows and how this could ever conceivably be an evolutionary advantage of any sort, rather than perhaps expound on world politics for example, then for this I make not apologies whatsoever.
My biggest hope for these attempts is that I and you my dear reader may stumble upon some shared understandings on some of the more menial aspects of modern life, and on the way come up with ideas and maybe even practical tools that may make us feel less alone in these modern conditions. There are of course no guarantees of this at all, but with the best of intentions if just one essay touches and informs just one other human being on any aspect of their lives, I'll consider my writing time well spent.
An addendum on editors and opinions
I also don't have an editor so I guess I also have to take personal responsibility for the abysmal use of language and punctuation. So sorry for that too.
