760 – Out for a walk

I read a piece in a paper saying that people were getting upset that our members of parliament were being given priority passes that would allow them to jump the queue, along with four guests. I almost feel sorry for them, it not quite. Surely some better system could have been devised, say for example at the end of the laying in state, workers who have been involved and who won’t have had a chance to pay their respects. I’m not saying that’s the solution but surely something less contentious could have been devised? Just saying, that’s all.

What does that have to do with being out for a walk? Not a lot, but it does relate to my thoughts about the purpose4 for the existence of this blog. I think that first paragraph is one of the very few overtly politically related entries I’ve made. I stay away from things like that because I’m not really that confident about getting involved in really contentious issues. Usually that’s because I feel I don’t have enough knowledge & information to form a cogent argument around my view.

Gilbert White was a naturalist who lived in Selborne in the 18th century. He is famous for his book The Natural History of Selborne. Gilbert white lived about 30 miles from us. The house is open to the public, and I am putting off buying his book until we are able to visit his house. What does that have to do with me writing about controversies or being out for a walk?

Actually, for me there is a link; Gilbert white was a naturalist, and I like nature, that could be more of a focus for me; no, no I don’t think I’m going to be a naturalist. But the link between Gilbert White and political controversies is research.

Research is my biggest area of weakness, I do not by far do enough of it, for everything I am interested in. There are a number of areas in which I am interested So, Research then? I need to think about that.

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.
