We went for a short, 90 minute cruise along the Chichester Ship Canal, constructed in the 1800s as a spur to the canal that ran from Portsmouth to London, to allow the transport of materials for the navy. The spur was paid for by a business man to allow him to bring merchandise to Chichester. The spur canal isn’t fully navigable, but not far from it, and is entirely self funded, receiving no additional finance.
For quite a long time now, I have been having an internal battle with myself as to the purpose of this blog. I can honestly say that over several hundred posts I have written on various topics, but the blog has no single purpose other than to feed my desire to write. Writing blog posts with no specific purpose other than for that might I guess be viewed as being, to a degree narcissistic? I think that may be a bit too strong.
One of the reasons I started the blog, was to allow me to use the technology to. Write about things in which I am interested. Fair enough, but what I am not really doing is exploring anything in any great depth. I have bunch of interests that I want to explore. What I am not doing is exploring them. Asking questions, identifying where I want to go.
What is it about each topic that I’m interested in that attracts me? Clearly then, there are a series articles here where I am not looking at the topic, but what I get out of it.
