Its been a difficult week here. I’ve left, probably for good, a community organisation that I’ve been involved with for over seven years (or maybe more) in all of its various guises that its had – just at a point when it was starting to get a head of steam. Not really going to write, right now at least, about the whys and wherefores but I can already feel the huge hole this has left in my day to day need to be out and about and the need to be doing. (Housework, ironing, I hear you say, *cough* *cough*). I’m going to allow myself to feel the discomfort, work through it and move on and begin again.
Even before this happened, though, I was discovering a whole array of new possibilities of things that need taking forward in many of the other areas that I have been involved in for many years. Almost too many to mention. So maybe the traumatic start to the week will turn out to be a blessing in disguise as it will allow me some headspace to define what I want to contribute to and how I can go about that.
I’ve already started by writing the first post on this blog. Here, I’ll be writing about my ideas around the use of digital technologies to help everyone’s lives be better, what I feel about the politics of the day and anything else that comes up. Won’t promise a post a day. Please feel free to comment. The blog is a work in progress and will probably change its look as it goes along.
