265/366 Obsessions or Interests?

The water in the cockle pond was so rough this morning that I wasn’t able to see any of the jelly fish, or anything else. Hopefully, I will tomorrow.

Sorry – this is about me again. I have interests, as much as I avoid writing about them here, I won’t deny my interest in politics or religion, and on those two topics, that is as much as you will get out of me. They in particular are way too divisive. With one exception, I did (notice the did) I wanted to be a councillor; whether that’s a town or a parish it didn’t matter.

The “did” comes from the fact that a couple of years ago I became a trustee in a Citizens Advice Branch. It was fascinating, some seriously dedicated people. I had to give it up. I’d done that before when I was school governor. Actually, I had give up being a governor for a different reason. But, my main concern is responsibility. I have a threshold, beyond that, I need to roll back. That’s why I am not going to become a councillor. I feel responsible, and people will depend, and I don’t want that. I’ll have enough without adding to it.

So, I am thinking about interests where there are no dependencies; Astronomy, amateur radio, model railways, microscopy – Ah! Yes, well that’s a new one, well kind of new. Being treated a little bit more seriously than I have done before. I’ve joined a club, The Quekett Microscopical Society. Tonight I attended the Presidential address via Zoom. It was fascinating. It seems there are many facets to the subject, not just plants, insects or bacteria (apparently microscopists consider bacteria to be boring), but sand. Sand, who would have thought it – look at these pictures. And, I hate beaches. I’ve ordered some sample jars. Where’s the nearest sandy beach?

And Micrometeoroids, apparently, you find in them in your gutters, and you only need a magnet. OK, that’s probably a bit of an oversimplification, but apparently, it can be as simple as that – how much do you want to bet it isn’t?

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
